OSF ST. ELIZABETH HOSPITAL: OSF St. Elizabeth Auxiliary Donates New Bladders Scanner to Hospital
Osf St. Elizabeth Hospital issued the following announcement on Sept. 5.
Thanks to generous contributions, the OSF St. Elizabeth Auxiliary was able to purchase a new bladder scanner for OSF HealthCare Saint Elizabeth Medical Center.
A bladder scanner is used to assess a patient’s post void residual volume, or how much urine remains in the bladder after emptying. The new bladder scanner allows Mission Partners to accurately measure bladder volume to determine if a foley catheter is necessary. In addition, this advanced technology will allow our Mission Partners to continue providing high-quality care and reduce the potential for unnecessary catheterizations.
The OSF St. Elizabeth Auxiliary serves to meet the mission of fundraising and generating donations towards purchasing state-of-the-art medical equipment. The Auxiliary raises money through various fundraisers and business ventures such as the Gift Shoppe, located within the hospital.
