Charge Bars at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne
Some cancer treatments can take up to 6 hours, and during this time, a mobile is an important device for entertainment and contacting family and friends.. But we all know what mobile phone batteries are like!
For this reason, St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne have used some Dry July funds to buy 3 mobile charging bars for their Cancer Centre, Oncology Ward and Caritas Christi Palliative Care.
These will give the patients a bit of peace of mind, and remove the worry and frustration of having your mobile phone run out of battery.
Dry July 2014 at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne
SVHM used Dry July 2014 funds towards a multitude of projects aimed at making patients in the cancer centre more comfortable. These included:

Boardgames for children waiting with their parents
Coral upgrade in the fish tank
Water drink bottles
CDs & CD player
Tim Tam biscuits for the beverage service
A new wheelchair
Fish tanks for the palliative care unit
The hospital is continuing at pace with their 2015 funds, seeking to purchase newspapers for the oncology ward and cancer centre, shampoo caps for oncology patients, a Stedy transport machine, Christmas decorations, new chemotherapy treatment chairs, new patient and visitor chairs in the oncology ward, and portable fold-out beds for visitors who wish to stay overnight.
