HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital’s Home Care personnel will be conducting blood pressure screenings at the Catholic Charities in Effingham, from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 2.
We will also offer blood sugar screenings during this event. A random blood sugar screening is used to detect unhealthy levels of blood sugar. An unhealthy test result may need further investigation by your health care provider.
Nursing staff from HSHS St. Anthony’s Home Care department provides blood pressure screenings free of charge throughout the area on a regular basis.
