Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics Foundation's purchases leave a lasting impression

Marlena Ward, RN and Deb Welsh, Respiratory Therapy Manager with the new Barrier Free Power Podiatry Chair.

The BAHC Foundation is responsible for several purchases each year that help update the institution and move it forward technologically. The most recent such purchase is called the Barrier Free Power Podiatry Chair.

The Barrier Free Power Podiatry Chair is yet another purchase made by the Gundersen Boscobel Foundation that is positively affecting patient care. It is a procedure chair used for Cardiac Stress Testing, and it has been the most recent Foundation equipment purchase. 

The previous procedure chair in the Stress Lab was very old and unsafe for both patients and staff. Additionally, it was not powered, therefore it was difficult able to be positioned effectively. In comparison, the Barrier Free Power Podiatry Chair offers unlimited possibilities. It reclines, provides increased comfort, and also offers the ability to lower the height, which provides a more safe transfer, particularly for disabled, elderly or obese patients. "We feel this allows patients to maintain their dignity," Deb explained. "The flexibility this chair offers is amazing."

The Barrier Free Power Podiatry Chair helps demonstrate the Gundersen Boscobel Core Values of Patient-centered priorities and safety and quality.  "It has been an important addition to the Stress Lab."

The upcoming Foundation Legacy Event will allow for more such purchases.  To those of you who are planning to attend, thank you in advance.
