KATH obtains medical equipment to facilitate the delivery of health care to the accident unit
Ghana’s second-largest healthcare facility, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), received medical supplies worth CAD 400,000 from the Excellence in Neuro Sciences Foundation (ENSF), a non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Canada.
The items are expected to add to the hospital’s accident and emergency unit (AEU) health apparatus to improve health care delivery.
Equipment included; hospital beds and mattresses, vital signs machine, intensive care bed and mattress, sets of hospital dressings and sheets, pediatric crip, mixing syringes and needles and a double IV rod.
Dr Oheneba Owusu Danso, Managing Director (CEO), KATH, receiving the items on behalf of the hospital, said that the hospital being a referral facility faces enormous infrastructural pressure and there must be a monitor next to each patient, especially during COVID-19 admissions and these donations have been helpful to the healthcare facility.
According to the CEO, these donations were essential to enable KATH to provide quality services that meet the expectations of its customers.
Dr Owusu Danso said the COVID-19 situation at the facility is now stable and urged the public to continue to adhere to safety protocols.
Ms Gifty Frimpong, nurse and ENSF member, said she was aware of the challenges the hospital was facing, assuring that more of the equipment would reach the facility soon.
Sunyani Hospital and Kurofa Clinic also benefited from the gesture.
