The hospital was also supplied with a set of handwashing facilities that are placed at the reception, at the OPD triage, and OPD entry point. The hospital further received equipment for emergency care such as wheelchairs, stretchers, an examination bed, a gas cylinder, and a modern trolley. “We have also been provided with handwashing points, hand sanitizers, blood warmer machines, and other equipment for to enable smooth provision of emergency services,” says Emel.
