Carolina Pines donates scales to needy patients

Lynn Hall, RN, of Cardiac Rehab Center at Carolina Pines, and Johnnie Woods, CPRMC Auxiliary member. Auxiliary members at Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center recently purchased weight scales to donate to needy congestive heart failure patients. “When the patients with congestive heart failure are admitted to the hospital, we ask if they have a scale at home,” said Hall. “Their doctor will require them to check their weight daily. When they begin to hold fluid their weight goes up, so it’s significant to track the fluid overload.”
