Casino Canberra has had a long-standing relationship with the Newborn Intensive Care Foundation so it seemed logical that some of the unclaimed found money go towards purchasing much needed equipment at The Canberra Hospital’s Centre for Newborn Care. The Casino has purchased three Graseby Apnia Monitors that will be lent out to parents that have babies with particular conditions which require ongoing monitoring at home (usually for 3-6 months). The monitors sense any breathing problems and, if detected, an alert is sounded.
