(CNS Local Life): The Veterans and Seamen’s Society of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman (VSS) has donated two portable digital electronic vital sign monitors to the Kirkconnell Community Care Centre (KCCC). The instruments, each capable of simultaneously measuring blood pressure, pulse rate, oxygen saturation and temperature, are mounted on trolleys which enables easy positioning by bedsides.

The donation relieves KCCC staff of the need to carry out separate time-consuming procedures to obtain a client’s vital signs, explained a VSS press release.

The society uses subscriptions, donations and fundraising proceeds to assist its members and others on the Brac and Little Cayman whilst also supporting community causes.

The KCCC is owned by the Sister Islands Community Care Association and operated by the Department of Children and Family Services.
