May 14th, 2020: Ocrim have generously donated €100,000 euro which has enabled the purchase of five proning beds which are now being used in hospitals in Cremona and Crema. Italy has been one of the countries worst effected by COVID-19, currently there have been over 220,000 cases.
‘These are very special beds that assist in the treatment of patients with severe respiratory failure. They are in fact actual therapeutic tools that promote the patient’s recovery in a shorter time. They make the work of healthcare professionals easier, promote patient comfort and reduce the risk of bedsores to a minimum. State-of-the-art equipment that will be useful to everyone,’ said Marina Zanotti, Head of Arco Onlus Fundraiser.
Matteo Tedoldi, chairman of Arco Onlus thanked Ocrim, ‘I wish to thank Ocrim, which responded to our appeal and made a very substantial donation that allowed us to donate these very sophisticated beds, not only in Cremona but also in Crema. COVID-19 has hit our area very badly, and it has reacted with tangible, extreme generosity and this is an example.’
Ocrim CEO, Alberto Antolini, commented, ‘We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish together. In an emergency like this, the least we could do was support our healthcare system and the incredible work carried out by our doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals. Thanks to the strong bond that the Arco Onlus association has with the region, we have managed to make the donation immediately accessible’.
