The nursing staff would like to thank the Swedish Covenant Hospital Foundation for its generous donation for the purchase of nine AccuVein Vein Illuminator devices for nursing units throughout SCH. These leading-edge devices allows health care professionals to see a map of peripheral veins on the skin’s surface which assists the nursing staff in reaching their goal of accessing a vein to draw blood or begin an IV infusion on the first attempt.
“We are continually working to improve the care provided to our patients,” said Clinical Nurse Educator Eileen Wright, MSN, RN. “Our nurses are very pleased to be using a product that can influence their development of venipuncture skills while enhancing patient experience. There have already been many positive stories that illustrate significant patient satisfaction through the use of the AccuVein device.”
“Swedish Covenant Hospital Foundation is thankful to the many donors who contribute to support the hospital, our nurses and caregivers in the delivery of quality care for our patients,” said Executive Director Jennifer Tscherney. “We know from firsthand accounts that this equipment is already making a significant difference in the overall patient experience at Swedish Covenant Hospital.”
