Loyola University of Chicago?s Health Sciences Library received a grant from the National Library of Medicine to providing ?on demand? health information to patients and families served by Loyola University Health System Mobile Health Unit (MHU). The MHU, which is part of the Ronald McDonald Children?s Hospital of Loyola University Medical Center, is a children?s clinic on wheels. The clinic is staffed by pediatric nurse specialists and is driven to Chicago-area communities to provide vital health care services including routine physicals, immunizations, asthma care, childhood disease prevention & education to medically under-served children ages 0-18. Through the NLM grant, the MHU was equipped with a new laptop computer, wireless technology, and printer. The grant also provided a two-year subscription to a wireless service. This poster will illustrate how wireless access helps the nursing staff provide health information and works to enhance the MHU?s mission of health promotion and prevention.
