The Phase Two project, totaling nearly $700,000 will see the purchase and installation of more and different equipment, including 106 digital clocks installed in the Emergency Department, Inpatient Cardiology/Telemetry and Cardiac Intensive Care.
Outdated technology can cause discrepancies in time sensitive health interventions. These networked clocks will ensure healthcare providers can record the time of every activity on a continuous basis, and that every clock in every area reflects the same time. One networked clock for all critical care areas decreases the ambiguity that can occur in time sensitive therapies such as medication administration.
Plus, four more hard wired beds will be purchased for Unit 22: Inpatient Cardiology/Telemetry, adding to the 4 purchased under Phase One. Such beds allow appropriate monitoring for more complex cardiac patients, allow better monitoring of patients on bed rest, or patients receiving medications that require constant monitoring.
Portable monitors will also be purchased which allow the ability to maintain continuous patient monitoring during transportation to other locations for treatment or procedures. These units are light-weight for patient comfort, and can be networked at the site.
In addition to these equipment purchases, renovations will include updates to information technology, and provide fundamental infrastructure for future cardiac programs.
Phase One was fully funded in 2015 ensuring more and better equipment is available to all Central Albertans facing cardiac related illnesses. We want to thank all our ticket purchasers, who together ensured the $1 million Phase One project became a reality!
In December 2014, Nola and Erwin Shippelt were settling in for the Christmas holidays with their two sons, then aged 20 and 16. As grain and cattle farmers near Condor, Alberta, they are used to hard work, and understand the need to stay healthy and strong to support their busy lifestyle.
It was for that reason that Nola was astonished to see her normally healthy glow tainted by the yellow of jaundice. The couple immediately headed for emergency at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. A number of doctors attended to Nola; she experienced x-rays, ultrasounds, an MRI, and a CAT scan. “They were on everything immediately,” notes Nola. “Dr. Sean Gregg gave me the final diagnosis: bile duct cancer.”
This extremely rare cancer (only 2,000 people in the US are diagnosed annually) involved Nola having a tumor located on the base of the bile duct on her liver. “I was extremely yellow,” remembers Nola. “It was very serious. I could have died. But Dr. Gregg, along with every other healthcare provider was extremely fabulous. Every nurse was wonderful – right down to the porters - they were incredible.” She continues, “Not just the higher up staff – great care filtered down to the lovely young ladies who came to offer me water or something to eat. Wherever I happened to be along this journey, I received professional and kind care, and I was treated with the utmost respect.”
Nola gratefully acknowledges Dr. Gregg for his work: “People like him: they stay in our [smaller] community because they want to help. It speaks to the quality of care offered by the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.”
Dr. Gregg was instrumental in Nola’s recovery. “He connected me with Dr. Dixon at the Foothills in Calgary. Dr. Dixon told me that the surgery I needed was extremely delicate, but he said quite emphatically, “Nola, I think I can do this.” And so he did. On February 24th, with Dr. Gregg traveling to Calgary to assist, Dr. Dixon removed the tumor.
And now, Nola is thankful for the care she received. “I was extremely well taken care of; I was close to death and they pulled me through. I’m now back on the road to health. I’m fine!” she states.
But fate wasn’t done with the Shippelt family just yet. In February 2016 the entire family came down with the flu. While Nola and her sons improved, husband Erwin wasn’t so lucky. Ultimately, he was diagnosed with H1N1. After a stint in the emergency department in Red Deer, a few days in ICU, and several more on Unit 31, Erwin was still desperately ill. “He developed pneumonia, and had life threatening blood clots in his lungs and leg. He was a very sick man. It was very scary”, says Nola, remembering her desperation.
Nonetheless, the Shippelt’s marvel at the great care Erwin received. “In the Emergency Department, despite being a very busy place, Erwin was very well taken care of. ICU was absolutely amazing. The care he received was phenomenal.”
Happily, as we spoke with Nola in May 2016, Erwin was feeling better and out seeding his land. “We credit so much of our happy ending to the quick care we both received during our ordeals.”
