Operating Theatre

We provide comprehensive surgical care to all customers undergoing any type of operation, by maintaining a high standard of nursing care.

Having adequate knowledge and adhering to professionalism, and ensuring that all personnel work under harmonious, safe conditions and within available resources for benefit of staff and customers.

 

Maternity Ward

Our maternity ward aims to achieve a high standard of nursing care.  The maternity ward is divided into four - antenatal ward, labour ward, postnatal ward and the nursery.

We encourage staff to attend workshops in order to develop themselves and to keep update them new developments.  We as maternity staff hope that God will one day help us to have enough staff to render the quality service our customers deserve.

 

X-Ray
This department is divided into two sections namely the ultrasound  and x-ray.  There are two x-ray rooms in, one in OPD, where we do a lot of out patients and the second one is on the first floor, just opposite the female surgical ward. We also have a portable x-ray machine, used for critically ill patients.  The ultrasound department is found in the maternity ward


Challenges: The absence of well designed and a fully furnished x-ray department in OPD is our biggest challenge as everything is done in the OPD corridor.  Nevertheless, this department strives for perfection and excellence.

 

Intensive Care
This unit renders the following services:

  • Emergency medical and surgical resuscitations
  • Medical, surgical and obstetrical intensive care to critically ill patients within the available resources and current provincial health care policies and medical and nursing legislation
  • We treat each patient holistically ensuring the maintenance of the client's rights, comfort dignity and safety.
