Dr. George Miller, surgeon with the Five Hills Health Region, knows new equipment makes a “big difference” for patients.
“It’s certainly safer for the patient,” he said. “That’s the important thing. If you can alert your nurses to the time, if you’ve got a bed you can stay in comfortably if you’re a person of size, if you’ve getting good sterilizing procedures and your lab tests are fast and reliable, it’s all better for the patient experience.”
As a health care provider, he said it’s great to see members of the public supporting their work by donating to the radiothon, allowing state-of-the-art equipment to be added to the hospital.
