Donor story - life saving manikin

A generous donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has donated $5,000 towards a new Advanced Life Saving (ALS) Manikin for the Eye and Ear.

The manikin will be used to upskill nursing staff by providing realistic, scenario based clinical training, geared towards improving critical thinking and decision making around patient assessment, diagnosis and management of care.

The donor describes himself as a Chinese migrant from South East Asia and said in Chinese Buddhist culture, you are taught to show your gratitude for health care by donating when you are able to. Key causes are hospitals, aged care and child health. He donates to three hospitals in Melbourne and said he lives a healthy lifestyle and therefore can afford to donate to worthy causes.

The Eye and Ear is very grateful for this support.
