Past Perfect “A Bargain Boutique”
Raise funds to be used by the Emergency Department to help with the purchase of equipment deemed vital in maintaining state of the art ability to serve our community.
Provide quality goods such as clothing and housewares at reasonable prices and including a pleasant shopping experience for our patrons.
Proceeds from Past Perfect have funded the purchase of the following equipment:
Emergency Department Scale: A wall-mounted scale that allows patients to be weighed without transferring them from their bed, wheelchair, or stretcher. Weighing patients is faster and easier when every second counts.
Vein Illuminators: A handheld device that projects infrared light on the skin, making venipuncture easier for those with difficult access. This allows clinicians to get a “good stick” the very first time.
Secure Digital Forensic Imaging Camera: A camera system that can capture images below a patient’s skin to assist in the photo-documentation of pressure or trauma, to create a photographic storyboard that can illustrate each patient’s story.
Proceeds to date exceed $125,000.
