Aurora Health Center in Mishicot Offers Automatic Blood Pressure Machine

Friday, December 05, 2008

Mishicot, Wis. - Aurora Health Center in Mishicot has received a new automatic blood pressure unit with a digital display, similar to those found at larger clinics and hospitals throughout the Aurora system.

Nursing Supervisor Robbie Bergin, R.N., said, "This blood pressure machine makes it easier to monitor patients' vital signs, and this could prevent a heart attack, stroke or other life-threatening condition."

Bergin continued, "The staff really appreciates having this machine. It can automatically take periodic blood pressure readings by continuously cycling on and off as needed. It also prints out the results. This is an efficient way to take repeated readings and frees up our caregivers to do other tasks to help the patient."

The Mishicot clinic opened more than five years ago. It is located at 175 South State Street. "Our clinic treats many guests who are golfing or attending events at the nearby resort. It's very convenient for them to come to our clinic, rather than drive to a bigger city for medical care," Robbie added.

Family nurse practitioner Lisa Steinhauer, A.P.N.P., and a team of medical assistants staff Aurora Health Center in Mishicot. The clinic consistently ranks at the top of all Aurora facilities in terms of patient satisfaction thanks to the patient-centered care offered there, which is enhanced by medical technology such as the new automatic blood pressure machine.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a nationally recognized leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers services at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
