The Royal Inland Hospital Foundation has created a campaign to collect funds to provide further assistance to frontline health-care workers at Royal Inland Hospital.
The RIH Foundation is taking donations to support frontline health-care workers and help ensure they have the equipment and tools they need to provide the best care possible.
The foundation is hoping to raise $60,000 to fund the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other needs for frontline health-care workers.
In a letter to donors, the foundation outlined how hospital operations have changed and how workers have been impacted.
“Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that we now find ourselves in, the significance of our hospital and critical needs of our health-care team is top of mind for everyone,” the letter reads.
It goes on to explain how the hospital has effectively been divided in two, with the emergency room and ICU separated to ensure patients with respiratory symptoms are kept apart from those without.
The letter also acknowledges a wide range of workers who are continuing to help the hospital deliver safe care, including housekeeping staff, patient porters, unit clerks, security, administrators, medical technicians and IT staff.
