Mount St. Mary's Hospital has acquired the latest vein visualization technology to assist in the placement of IVs and blood draws courtesy of a donation to the Mount St. Mary's Hospital Foundation by area resident Catherine DiMino.
The newly acquired system was unveiled Wednesday at luncheon as part of the hospital's celebration of National Nurses Week.
The technology - called AccuVein - allows hospital staff to digitally display a map of a patient's veins on the surface of the skin in real time to make it easier to place an IV in patients.
"We are thankful for this gift and the impact that it will have on our associates and patients," said Julie Berrigan, Executive Director of the Mount St. Mary's Hospital Foundation.
