Cuero, TX: Cuero Regional Hospital recently received a grant in the amount of $5,000 from ConocoPhillips to go towards the purchase of patient communication boards for all 37 patient rooms at Cuero Regional Hospital.
"With our commitment to providing compassionate care comes our commitment to keeping patients informed and safe," said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Health. "These patient communication glassboards will serve as a crucial communication tool between the CRH staff and our patients and their families," said Falcone.
Given the age and condition of the current patient communication boards at CRH, the need is greater and heightened with the new normal in this COVID-19 pandemic environment. "In today’s fast paced, complex healthcare environment, and given the extra level of stress and demand that COVID-19 has brought to our hospital, patient communication and satisfaction is vital. Great information exchange is key to great patient care. These well-designed communication boards will keep everyone informed – patients, staff, and families," said Falcone.
