Fund-a-Need: More Than a Bed

Fund-a-Need: The Auction Lot you take home with your heart

The Bob Ireland Intensive Care Unit is where we care for some of our most ill and immobile patients. These patients have very special needs, and GGH needs bed systems designed specifically for ICU patients. The beds have a number of very specialized features that reduce the risk of pressure ulcer development, including a scale system that redistributes weight-based pressure automatically, and a ‘turn assist’ system that makes turning easier for staff and patients. In addition, a bed exit sensor and alarm reduces risk of falling. And, the beds have great versatility when it
comes to change of position which helps with recovery.

Bid generously during Fund-A-Need to help reach the $300,000 BTB 2019 fundraising goal so that Guelph General Hospital can purchase all six of the specialized beds that they urgently need.
