€15,000 for Microscope for ENT Microsuction Procedures

Audiology patient who come to the ENT outpatients dept in Beaumont Hospital for hearing tests can present with wax in their ear canals which needs to be removed before the test can proceed. This is done by a micro suction procedure using a microscope.

However, when multiple clinics are in operation, there can be a backlog of patients waiting for the procedure which means that doctors end up waiting for patients to return to them for their hearing test.

Beaumont Hospital Foundation funded a second microscope to the ENT outpatients department so that the the clinic can run more smoothly, treat more patients and reduce waiting times.
