Fox Hospital Adds State-of-the-Art Heart Equipment

March 22, 2015

equipmentA.O. Fox Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program recently installed new state-of-the-art cardiac monitoring technology that will allow nursing staff to increase their efficiency and spend more time tailoring the program to each patient’s individual needs. Highlights of the system include electronic patient care plans and the ability to monitor eight patients at one time.

Cardiac rehabilitation nurse Mary Hansen, R.N., says, “Implementing this technology has been a seamless transition for patients and improves efficiency in our patient care. In addition, the ability to monitor the patient care plan electronically is very convenient.”

The implementation of this new technology also provides Fox access to a national cardiac rehabilitation registry. The registry includes national outcomes data for benchmarking against other programs around the country in order to improve performance in meeting evidence-based guidelines for secondary prevention of heart and vascular disease.

“Our program has been nationally certified since 2007, but this will take us to the next level of patient care and patient satisfaction,” says Hansen.

Patient Everett Wood has been rehabilitating at FoxCare Center’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program since undergoing heart surgery last October. He has made major improvements over the last three months and is thankful for the “excellent nursing staff.” Wood travels from Sidney to the FoxCare Center for rehabilitation three times a week. “The rehabilitation program here has made a big difference in my life,” says Wood. “This program keeps me going.”

Fox's Cardiac Rehabilitation Program has been a proud member of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) since 2007. For more information, call 607- 431-5242.
