Riverview Health Foundation recently received a $650 donation from Tri Kappa to fund the purchase of a Nita Newborn Infant Venous Access Simulator for the Maternity Center at Riverview Health.
The gift was given in memory of Tri Kappa member Joan Gamble’s granddaughter.
“We’re grateful for the donation as the new newborn infant simulator will allow our maternity team to receive hands-on training right here in the hospital,” said Amy Griffith, Riverview Health director of Maternal and Child Services. “Being prepared and keeping our skills sharp will allow us to provide the best care possible to our babies.”
The Nita Newborn Infant Venous Access Simulator is a lifelike, four-pound female baby designed to practice and teach vascular accessing of newborns and infants. It will be used for neonatal resuscitation training for the Maternity Center staff at Riverview Health.
