Critical donation to Coffs Harbour Health Campus
12 September 2013
Alongside the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Coates Hire made a special visit to the Coffs Harbour Health Campus with the donation of a much‐needed Vital Signs Monitor and a Oximax Handheld Pulse Oximeter (valued at almost $5,000) to the campus Pediatric & Adolescent Unit.
Coates Hire CEO Leigh Ainsworth, who grew up in Sawtell and attended school in Coffs Harbour, is delighted to provide this vital contribution to the area. "The Humpty Dumpty Foundation makes a big difference to the lives of children and their families across Australia and we are very proud to support the great work they do.
"Coates Hire is also proud to be the naming rights sponsor of the Coates Hire Rally Australia here in Coffs Harbour and we thank the local community for supporting such a great event. We also thank the Humpty Dumpty Foundation for the opportunity to support the Coffs Harbour Health Campus".
"Coates Hire has been an extremely valued supporter of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation for over 10 years. It is through the ongoing generosity of organisations like Coates Hire along with members of the community that Humpty Dumpty Foundation can continue to deliver essential pieces of equipment to hospitals and health services across Australia.
"In the past we have donated several pieces of equipment to the Coffs Harbour Health Campus including most recently and Infant Resuscitation Cot valued at $22,500 and hope these two latest pieces will assist in caring for the young community of Coffs Harbour” said Executive Chairman and Founder of Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Paul Francis.
The Vital Signs Monitor with Stand measures a child’s vital signs – temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation levels ‐ and ensures medical staff can quickly and effectively respond to changes in a sick child.
The Oximax Handheld Pulse Oximeter measures the oxygen levels in a child’s body providing the child with the close monitoring required when first admitted to hospital. Oxygen levels need to be monitored to maintain the respiratory and heart rate of a child.
