The oncology department at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital (MBSH) recently added a Philips EarlyVue VS30 vital signs monitor thanks to the generous fundraising efforts of the hospital’s Ambassadors.
“This state-of-the-art vital signs monitor is a wonderful addition to our Cancer Treatment Center, allowing us to provide enhanced care for our patients,” said Laura Lewis, surgery/infusion center manager. “We really appreciate the support from the Ambassadors and their continued fundraising in the community, which made this purchase possible.”
The Philips EarlyVue VS30 vital signs monitor features an automated Early Warning Scoring (EWS) system to quickly identify subtle signs of patient deterioration for confident and proactive delivery of care. It has an intuitive user interface with a 10.1-inch all-touch display. There is a task light for nocturnal use with 360 viewable alarm lights. The EarlyVue VS30 can be connected to a larger screen for training purposes through its VGA connector. There is a nurse call output option; two speakers that toggle between monitoring modes of spot, interval or continual; and a toggle between light or dark display to avoid glare.
The ongoing fundraising efforts of the Ambassadors consistently receive extensive support in the local community, helping to provide much-needed equipment for the hospital. In fact, nearly $41,000 was approved for equipment and technology purchases in 2021. MBSH is grateful to the Ambassadors for their commitment to the hospital and the community.
