Tender Loving Chair
Patients at St Vincent’s Hospital will enjoy greater comfort thanks to Arrow’s donation of a brand new tender loving chair. This specialised care chair for patients on the haematology and bone marrow transplant (BMT) ward has electronically adjustable height, back and leg rests. A welcome addition to the ward, the chair is a great improvement to the current manual chairs which do not allow back and leg rests to be adjusted independently.
With greater comfort on the way, patients will be able to spend more time out of bed. This is particularly important during recovery and helps patients to establish a daily routine. The chair will also help nurses in being able to better move and assist patients.
This donation was made possible thanks to the generosity of Sylvia Hartog’s family who each year issue the Arrow Sylvia Hartog award in support of patients and nurses at St Vincent’s Hospital.
Cindy from the BMT ward says, “We truly appreciate the generosity of this gift, Please send our thanks to Mr Hartog. There is one patient on the ward right now who will benefit from the use of this chair. The chair will also help staff with ease of manual handling. Thank you very much.”
