Blood Pressure Screening

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why can’t I get a free walk-in blood pressure check by an RN? 

If you require blood pressure monitoring that needs to be documented in your medical record as prescribed by your doctor, you will need to schedule regular appointments.

However, there is good news for those who were used to this medical service being provided “free.” Dedicated Peace Island volunteers are currently raising funds for a blood pressure monitoring system station that will be installed in the Emergency Department (ED) waiting room and will be accessible to the community 24/7, on-demand on a courtesy basis. The station will require not a PIMC caregiver to operate it. This station will be easy to use, accurate and reliable, and will print your results if you want to share them with your health care provider or for your own personal record.
