0 19

Dr. Esinam Nyarko, the Head of Pediatrics Department at the Brong Regional Hospital has lamented the lack of and inadequate incubators and other health delivery equipment at the facility.

She narrated that incubators and other equipment have not increased to match up to the increasing number of users and patience, over time.

She made this call at the Hospital’s End of Year Party.

‘’As we are growing, admissions are also increasing, so if we were seeing 20 babies, now we are seeing 40 babies and the incubators are the same, and once you are using them too, some are wearing out and some are faulty, ‘’ she stated.

According to her, the situation impedes effort at recording zero mortality rate.

‘’If we want zero mortality, we need equipment available and also it should be enough to enable us care for the number of babies and children,’’ she added.

She called on the government and donors to extend a hand of support to the Hospital, and especially the Pediatrics department.
