Brockville – Recently, four state-of-the-arts Ultrasound Beds, or Sono Beds, were purchased by the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation (BDHF) for use in the Diagnostic Imaging Department at the Brockville General Hospital (BGH).
According to Nathan Tompkins, Manager of Diagnostic Imaging, this purchase will provide the patient with a more comfortable and safer examination as these beds have hand rails and other safety facets.
As well, for the staff, there are health and safety features, easier access to the patient with moveable cut-outs, electronic height adjustment and effortless bed movability.
“We are prioritizing patient and staff safety by really looking at the equipment we have, and how we can promote health and safety in the Diagnostic Imagining Department to provide the services to our community, that we want to provide.”
