Concerning the grant to Lindsey Wilson from Kosair Charities
By Robert Flowers
I feel that I was guilty of not giving a good explanation.
The grant money, which is a matching grant, 200,000 Kosair matched by an anonymous donor to purchase equipment of the nursing school.
The equipment to be purchased are simulator mannequins for nurse training and centered on drug patients, particularly innocent infants.
The mannequins are very expensive. Teen and adult mannequins exceed $100,000, and infant mannequins are in excess of $25,000.
The training that they provide is state of the art and a practicing nurse or student would most likely have to travel to large metropolitan areas, where the volume of this illness is so great.
I am pleased that Columbia and Adair County has started a drug task force, and pray that it will continue with their efforts.
Most local people would be shocked at the number of drug babies that are delivered in our area.
Healing the infant and/or the money is part of dealing with the drug problem. I encourage anyone with interest to visit to visit the nursing school at Lindsey and see for themselves the value of this most useful equipment and the staff that operates the lab.
We are please to have nurses from many of our surrounding counties to come for training and exposure to this need.
Together, we can all attempt to get a handle on our drug problems.
Kosair Charities will continue to provide the best treatment to help a sick child and encourage your participation.
- ROBERT FLOWERS, member, Kosair Charities Board of Directors.
