HHSVA Donates State-of-the-Art Operating Room Tables to McMaster Hospital
The Operating Room (OR) team at McMaster hospital couldn’t be more pleased with the four state-of-the-art OR tables donated by the Hamilton Health Sciences Volunteer Association (HHSVA). The tables have many new features that have improved both the patient and OR team experience. Its telescoping base adjusts the table from a height of almost four feet down to less than two feet from the floor. The table top slides laterally allowing for unobstructed x-ray images during surgery and is constructed in four sections enabling staff to easily position patients. "It’s great because these are big ticket items that we really needed. I am amazed that the VA is able to provide this kind of funding," says Patricia Leclair, Registered Nurse. "Because of the VA, we have all the beds we needed for the new OR and we’re able to be more efficient with the procedures we do."
