The charity bib funds will be used to purchase 3 (three) IV infusion pumps. The infusion pumps will allow for MCC to provide enhanced level of clinical services to our residents with a goal of reducing unnecessary hospital transfers. It will also enable MCC to receive the resident back from the hospital sooner, as MCC would have the means to continue the residents’ treatment in the facility rather than the resident being required to stay in an acute care setting to receive IV therapy. They will allow MCC to administer IV fluids and antibiotics to our residents. Being able to provide these services to our residents will allow our residents to stay in their “home”. Having the equipment available will also allow MCC to admit the resident to the facility that require long term IV antibiotics, freeing up hospital beds for the acutely ill. The outcomes are highly measurable as MCC can track those residents who did not have to transfer due to the use of this new equipment.
