Hospital Auxiliary Makes Donation To CRMC

The Auxiliary at Cookeville Regional Medical Center recently donated over $14,000 to purchase “high-task” chairs for the nursing staff on three nursing units at the hospital for use with their new “WOW’s,” or wireless computer “workstations on wheels.” A computer workstation on wheels is assigned to each nurse on duty caring for patients and allows nurses to enter and access electronic patient data at the patient’s bedside, thus improving patient care and efficiency. There are more than 125 active members of the hospital Auxiliary who provided more than 28,000 hours of service to the hospital during 2008. If you are interested in learning more about the CRMC Auxiliary Program, please call Karen Bailey 931-783-2740.
