The nursing staff at our rural service in Milton on the South Coast, NSW reached out expressing a need to purchase a vein finder.
Milton does not have a vascular access Clinical Nurse Consultant and when patients with difficult veins present sometimes multiple attempts are required to locate a vein. It has been witnessed that this can cause anxiety among some patients and also treatment delays.
Providing this piece of equipment which accurately detects veins in patients will completely eliminate the need for multiple attempts.
Thank you Dry July for providing this equipment to our rural service! In doing so we have reports of a more efficient service and reduced anxiety amongst both staff and patients.
