2023 Light Up a Life Campaign
- November 13, 2023 - January 31, 2024
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
First introduced in 1994, the annual Light Up a Life campaign has raised more than $3.7 million and funded a variety of equipment for NHH over the years – everything from surgical scopes, to anaesthetic machines, hospital beds, and the MRI.
This year’s goal is to support the purchase of an Automatic Tablet Packager for NHH’s Pharmacy – something that will help streamline medication packaging for departments across the hospital and increase efficiency.
The NHH Pharmacy supports all patient-care departments across the hospital, working closely with patients, physicians, nurses, and other members of the care team to ensure safe and effective medication use; prepare, dispense, and compound medications; and so much more. With every expansion and new service offered, the demands placed on the Pharmacy increase.
In addition to increasing efficiency, an Automatic Tablet Packager will help to streamline medication packaging, reduce medication waste, improve patient safety, and better support nursing workflow.
“Shifting away from the current manual process of packaging medications will save time for our team and allow staff to focus on other key tasks, while improving inventory control and offering less chance for human error,” says Andrea Bonello, NHH Pharmacy Manager. “This will allow us to better support all departments and patients across NHH.”
