In efforts to continue supporting the hospital in improving safety and services, the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has purchased a Stryker TC Transport Chair to be used in Radiology, ER & Urgent Care. This special transport chair will assist staff in safely transporting patients around the facility who may need the features offered by this transport chair.

The FMH Auxiliary also recently donated $12,000 toward the purchase of a Dual Head CT Injector for Diagnostic Imaging. The new Mallinckrodt Optivantage Dual Head CT Injector allows technologists to administer contrast at a more appropriate dose based off of dosage amount set by the Clinical Radiologist protocol and type of scan being performed. Following the injection with a saline flush is a nice feature that provides the technologists with the ability to give patients a lesser amount of contrast and still obtain great contrast enhanced studies.
