Holy Cross Hospital held a ‘Celebrate Recovery Send Off’ yesterday for a patient who was quite ill with the coronavirus. She was admitted, with very low oxygen levels, so we are excited that she is recovering and is well enough to go home. Congratulations Juanita! We here at Holy Cross Celebrate you and your recovery wishing you the best in the days ahead!
During her stay, this patient was provided with a piece of equipment called Vapotherm which is used as an alternative to intubating a patient. This high flow oxygen is a safer option and allows the patient more mobility. When COVID-19 became a pandemic, hospital staff were quick to research equipment options, order, obtain and train on this new lifesaving equipment.
