The Emergency and Out Patient Consulting Clinic Receives Funding for a Powe
The Smith County Memorial Hospital's Emergency and Out patient Consulting Clinic Departments received funding for a power exam table. The funding was provided by The Rathert Foundation and The Smith County Community Foundation. The total cost for the power exam table was $4544.99.
Prior to the funding, SCMH had an exam table in each of the four exam rooms. All of the, exam tables were manual tables that did not raise and lower. To get up on the table patient used a step up that slides out the bottom of the table. Getting on an exam table can be anxious and an insecure moment, especially for our elderly patients and special needs patients. The manual exam table that we have the top is 37 inches from the floor. The power exam table the top can be lowered to 18 inches; therefore, making it easier for our patients to get on and off the table. Having an exam table with the ability of being lowered makes it easier for patients to get on and off the exam table with no or minimal assistance from staff, helping them maintain their dignity.
