Along with cable TV service already donated by MCV Broadband, the televisions will provide patients to pass the time as they undergo lengthy regular dialysis treatments.
“During the dialysis treatment, patients are required to sit in a chair or lie on a bed for three to four hours at a time,” said Jemmabeth Simbillo,
RN, GMH deputy administrator of nursing services. “Being entertained by a show on TV would definitely allow them to pass the time more quickly or
distract them from their discomfort and immobility.”
