ST. JOHNS, Mich. — The Sparrow Clinton Hospital Auxiliary has agreed to provide $10,200 in funding for mammography equipment and continuing education at the hospital.
Auxiliary members unanimously approved $9,000 for imaging equipment for the Sparrow Clinton Radiology Services Department. Radiology Technician Kelly Cerny, RT, (R) (M) (CT), had requested funding for additional equipment to use with hospital’s new 3-D mammography unit, including biopsy paddles, a keyboard lift, and a SmartCurve® system to decrease compression discomfort during imaging.
The Auxiliary also agreed to fund certification courses for 10 Sparrow Clinton Nurses with a $1,200 donation.
Clinical Nurse Manager Nikki Schmidt, MSN, RN, CNOR, CNL, had outlined the need for Sparrow Clinton Nurses to have access to a two-day, online review course that prepares Nurses to take a Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nursing test. The course improves their clinical knowledge base by sharing evidence-based practices and provides Nurses with a stronger skill set to enhance Patient safety and care.
