AED Donation Request

The Fox Valley Heart Fund at Rush Copley is pleased to offer AEDs to non-profit organizations in the communities that we serve. The program is entirely funded by contributions received from Rush Copley employees, patient and community members.

If your non-profit organization is interested in receiving an AED please complete an application request. Requests typically exceed the number of units available and approval is based on needs and funds. One AED will be awarded per quarter. Recipient organizations are required to schedule a hands-on demonstration and presentation with Rush Copley Medical Center within three months of receiving the AED to become familiar with the life-saving medical equipment.

Fall Prevention Community Program

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), trauma caused by falls is one of the leading causes of death in the older adult population.

However, falls are controllable and the opportunity to prevent them among older adults has never been better. Studies have shown that education, fall assessments, and reducing fall hazards at home have helped decrease falls.

Rush Copley’s Fall Prevention Program teaches participants how to identify risk factors for falls, simple exercises to aide in strength and balance and how to modify living environments to reduce the risk of falls in the home.
