Gold Coast Hospital Foundation can purchase a bladder scanner thanks to Dry July fundraising

Your fundraising for Dry July has enabled Gold Coast Hospital Foundation to purchase a bladder scanner that is currently a priority on the Oncology Inpatients Unit Wish List.

Bladder scanners allow nursing staff to scan and assess the amount of urine in the bladder on the spot in real time. Oncology patients require bladder assessments due to unique Cancer treatments that may affect the bladder directly.

Patients suffering urinary retention often caused by, obstruction, disease, infection (common in Oncology patients) can often suffer great amounts of pain. Prompt assessment of the bladder will lead to faster intervention and better patient outcomes including shorter periods of pain crisis.

Thank you, Dry Julyers!
