BENEFITING: TRUSTEES OF THE MASONIC HALL AND ASYLUM FUND
ORGANIZER: TRUSTEES OF THE MASONIC HALL AND ASYLUM FUND
EVENT DATE: Jul 09, 2017
The charity bib funds will be used to purchase 3 (three) intravenous (IV) infusion pumps. The infusion pumps will allow for the Masonic Care Community (MCC) to provide an enhanced level of clinical services to our residents with a goal of reducing unnecessary hospital transfers. It will also enable MCC to receive our residents back from the hospital more quickly, 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 residents to our facility that require long-term IV antibiotics, freeing up hospital beds for the acutely ill.
