2019 Light Up a Life Campaign
- November 12, 2019 - January 23, 2020
First introduced in 1994, the annual Light Up a Life campaign has raised more than $2.7 million and funded a variety of equipment for NHH over the years – everything from surgical scopes, to anaesthetic machines, to the MRI.
This year, NHH Foundation is thrilled to welcome Registered Nurse, Devon Weller, as campaign Chair.
“I’m so pleased proceeds of this year’s Light Up a Life campaign will fund the replacement of 17 beds at NHH,” states Weller. “Working in a variety of departments, I see how important these are to both patient comfort and safety across the hospital.”
This year’s campaign goal is to raise $170,000. If the goal is met, not only will the entire fleet of beds become a reality, but the purchase of other high priority equipment will also be possible.
Weller shares that he is honoured to be the Chair of this year’s campaign and hopes the community will once again come together in support of this important initiative. He goes on to explain hospital beds are one of the most essential pieces of equipment, in use 365 days a year.
“With electronic features and functions to ensure both patient and staff safety, our hospital beds are so much more than a standard bed,” he explains. “They have easy to use controls and are fully adjustable; can be lowered and raised to prevent injuries from patients falling out of bed; have in-bed weigh scales to monitor patients’ weight; include built-in bed alarms to ensure patient safety; are compatible with specialty mattresses that prevent pressure injuries from developing; and so much more.”
