BY SARAH PRIDGEON A coat of paint, a brand new floor and a few soothing deco- rations - thanks to the hard work of Deanna Maston, the laboratory at Sundance Hos- pital has a fully renovated, dedicated room for drawing blood. As well as providing a calm and reassuring atmo- sphere, says Laboratory Man- ager Mike Hilbert, the phle- botomy room will increase patient privacy. "Patients were exposed to everything in here, we had to hide patient reports," he says of the comer by the door that, until recently, held the blood draw area. "And safety - that's the other thing, because they're coming straight in to where every- thing is going on and they're not supposed to be able to ac- cess this as easily." Members of the public have historically been able to pop in to the lab when they happen to be passing, which interrupts the privacy of patients having their blood drawn, Maston ex- plains. Meanwhile, the small comer is difficult to access for patients with less mobility, such as residents of the Long Term Care unit. Now, they say, the door to the main lab can be closed when blood is drawn or a breatha- lyzer test is taken. Also, if a patient wishes to discuss a confidential matter, they can do so in increased privacy. Before its transformation, the room held microbiology, freeing up the space. equipment. This service is "It was more cost-effective now performed in Spearfish, for us to stop doing the mi- iiiiii~iiiiii~i!iiiii!iii~i~ii!i!ii~!!!iii~;i~!!ii!!!!i!!i!ii!ii~ii~iii!i!i~i~iiii!iiiii~iiiiii!:!~!~~ ii~ Sarah Pfidgeon photo Deanna Maston shows off the new phlebotomy room at CCMSD. crobiology here from start to finish [because] it was more cost-effective for Spearfish to run it for us. There was a lot of equipment that we weren't using in that back room," says Maston. The equipment that lab staff still need has been moved into the old blood draw corner. "When Jeff [Mengenhaus- en], our past CEO, was here, I pitched the idea to him. I'd done some rough measure- ments and figured out that it could work," says Maston. "I got the green light to go." Maston took on the project to renovate the room almost single-handedly, although husband Ken, Ambulance Director, helped out with cut- ting the corners of the floor- ing, she says. "I came in last weekend and started the painting. We started cleaning about a week before, bleaching out the cabinets and putting cab- inet doors back on that had been taken off for equipment purposes," she explains. "I didn't have a plan for the floor but the paint and the cabinets cleaned up so nice- ly and the floor was still this old floor. I found this deal at Menards and I really couldn't turn it down." The paint, flooring and a few "odds and ends" cost under $200, Maston says. The end result is a more soothing and relaxing ambience that will be particularly welcome to pa- tients who feel nervous about having their blood drawn. "Patients are loving it," says Hilbert of the many people who have already passed through the new room. "People do seem a lot more relaxed in here." Maston is pleased that she was able to finish the room before Mengenhausen's final day. According to Hilbert, he was so impressed with the flooring that he assumed the maintenance crew installed it. Accessing the room will re- quire patients to grow used to a different door. Just down the hall from the main lab, the door to the blood draw room is equipped with a doorbell and clearly signposted. "The old door has some in- formation to come to the next door," says Maston. At present, she says, pa- tients should be aware that the doorbell cannot be heard from the outside. Buy it! Hnd it!
