Operating Theatre for St Luke's Hospital
The operating theatre block project at St Luke's Hospital Malosa is nearing completion. It is looking very good! Mr Winasi Boma, Chief Hospital Administrator, said that although they can use some equipment from the old theatre, he is endeavouring to source funds to fully equip both new theatres.
In the New Block
·Strict infection control will be achieved through carefully designed routes through the block.
·Instrument sterilization will be improved.
·Patients will be monitored in a purpose-built recovery room so that immediate post-operative problems can be swiftly addressed.
·Emergencies (such as Caesarean sections), will be accommodated in the second operating theatre when one theatre is in use,
·Staff facilities will be improved, and infection control assisted, by providing male and female changing rooms, showers, and wash basins.
