Hospital auxiliary donates equipment for wound care
The Woy Woy Hospital Auxiliary has donated two pieces of equipment to the Woy Woy Community Rehabilitation Centre's specialist wound centre.
"The wonderful fundraising group donated an examination and treatment chair and an automated vascular studies machine, used to assess lower limb blood flow," said Health District's acting director of nursing Ms Melissa Pickering.
These would increase the Centre's capacity to see patients and ensure those cared for will have access to the latest equipment, she said.
"Chronic wounds such as leg ulcers are very common on the Peninsula, particularly in an aged population who are often suffering from multiple health conditions.
"We are grateful to the auxiliary for their ongoing support."
