Tatura hospital donation

By Ilias Bakalla

Tatura Hospital is set to buy seven fully adjustable acute chairs after receiving a “fantastic” $2000 donation from the Generations op shop on Wednesday.

Interim manager/director of nursing Heidi van den Ende said the pressure-relieving chairs were fully adjustable to the patient’s height and weight.

“It means that each patient will have comfort and will hopefully reduce their stay at the hospital,” Ms van den Ende said.

Neville Crow, who runs the op shop and donates $2000 every quarter to people in the community that need it, thanked the volunteers who help in the shop.

“Thanks to the community for supporting us by donating goods,” Mr Crow said.
