AccuVein - Vein Visualization System

Good Samaritan Home is seeking funds to purchase AccuVein Vein Visualization Systems for the nursing department. AccuVein introduces the latest in vein visualization by providing handheld vein illumination technology. "The AccuVein AV300 helps healthcare professionals locate veins for blood draw, IV infusion and blood donation by projecting a pattern of light on patient’s skin that reveals the position of underlying veins.  This 10-ounce, hand-held device is available with a range of hands-free options so that it can quickly free the practitioner’s hands to perform the venipuncture." https://www.accuvein.com/uncategorized/patient-comfort-a-key-benefit-of-vein-visualization/

Crimping Tool - Press Tool

Good Samaritan Home is seeking funds to purchase a crimping tool for the maintenance department. A crimping tool will allow maintenance to more quickly join piping by eliminating traditional soldering and removing the need for a fire watch.
