Health Department Receives $54,329 Grant From MFH

The Scotland County Health Department is getting a hand making the adjustment to the ever-changing technological world. Administrator Margaret Curry announced the department has been awarded a $54,329 grant entitled Bringing It Into The 21st Century. The grant, which was awarded in February 2004 by the Missouri Foundation For Health, will allow for various updates to the departments equipment, educational tools and a storage facility.

The health department has already begun purchasing educational models and displays, which will be available for use by those in the county doing health oriented programs, Curry stated. Items purchased so far include: breast self exam practice models, diabetic care models, tobacco use prevention displays, high blood pressure facts and treatment displays, fat and salt models and a body mass index analyzer (weight to height) with computer software for lifestyle modification planning.

Curry encouraged anyone interested in using these tools to call the health department for more information.

Technology and equipment improvement was a large facet of the grant. Clinic rooms at the department will be receiving new exam tables, storage devices, blood pressure cuffs, stethoscopes, scales, otoscopes, hemoglobin analyzers, thermoscan thermometers, pulse oximeters and womens clinic equipment.

In addition all staff will be receiving new computers, and several will be receiving new desks and chairs. The department will also be purchasing a Powerpoint/video projector and a digital camera.

Curry stated that the grant will assist with creation of more office space at the department by funding the addition of a storage building. Many items that are out of date, including old records and program documentation, will be moved into the unit. Old file cabinets will also be moved to the storage unit, as the grant will also allow for the purchase of new lockable file cabinets and storage cabinets, that will assist with the HIPPA compliance regulations.

The health department board and staff couldnt be more pleased and excited about this opportunity to enhance service to the citizens of Scotland County, Curry stated. She encouraged anyone with questions about the grant or any ongoing program at the Scotland County Health Department and Home Health Agency to give her a call.
