After a six month delay due to COVID-19, two observation monitors were finally delivered to Goulburn Base Hospital on Friday, September 4.
Costing over $4000 each and donated by BDCU Goulburn Fundraising Inc, acting nurse manager at Goulburn Community Health Wendy Rogers said the new devices would be very useful.
"The observation monitors save us a lot of time and are so effective," Ms Rogers said.
"Before we received them, we would have to use handheld thermometers to check temperature, use manual blood pressure devices and manually check the patient's heart rate.
"This machine does all of that at the same time."
The observation monitors will be able to connect to WIFI so that the results can be sent to the required staff straight away.
The donation was aided through a government grant.
Earlier this year, a bariatric lifter, worth $6160, was donated to the hospital, as well as a tilted slide table costing $8810 and two breast pumps worth $4910.
Goulburn Base Hospital has a list of items they have a shortage on and gives it to the donators like BDCU.
