QEII COVID-19 Response Fund

QEII COVID-19 Response Fund

The COVID-19 pandemic is sweeping the globe and as Atlantic Canadians band together to flatten the curve, the QEII Health Sciences Centre needs your help to ensure patients and healthcare staff are receiving the best possible support through these unprecedented times.

Strong community roots are woven into the fabric of what makes us Atlantic Canadians. When the going gets tough – we step up and weather the storm together.

Funds raised will support patients and healthcare staff at the QEII.

SUPPORTING NEEDS IN THE QEII COVID-19 WARD

COVID-19 wards at the QEII are in urgent need of items to care for patients. Funds raised will purchase items like electronic stethoscopes, Bluetooth O2 probes, lumify ultrasounds and clinical equipment like a portable ultrasound machine for guided IV insertion and bedside diagnostics.

EMPOWERING HOME SELF-CARE AND RECOVERY SUPPORT

Not only do patients within the walls of the QEII need support, self-care and recovery at home is also an important piece of the COVID-19 response strategy. As patients care for themselves and recover at home, they are in need of items such as thermometers, oxygen saturation monitors, HR and BP machines, telehealth monitoring, portable nebulizer units with mask and tubing, oscillating positive expiratory pressure devices, aerochambers and more. The more we empower patients with the tools they need, the more capacity we build within our healthcare system.

ACTIVATING VIRTUAL CARE SOLUTIONS

The health and safety of QEII staff is of utmost importance everyday – but especially amidst a pandemic. Funds raised will support virtual doctor visits using technology to connect patients with doctors, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists for both consultative needs and on-site prescriptions. This advanced technology uses thermal imaging and facial recognition to provide patients with a safe, private, and secure consultation with a licensed clinician.

BUILDING EFFICIENCIES IN COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION

To improve efficiencies and abide by social distancing requirements – virtual communication solutions have never been so critical. Funds raised will support digital solutions that allow healthcare professionals to communicate and collaborate in a safe and effective way.

The QEII Foundation and QEII Health Sciences Centre are working together to determine top priority items that are needed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic for Atlantic Canadians. The items noted above have been communicated as areas of greatest need. This list has the potential to evolve as the response to COVID-19 builds. Funds raised will support a full spectrum of care and be disbursed at the discretion of healthcare teams who are aware of frontline needs.
