COVID 19 trainees of Effia Nkwanta procure essential items for treatment center


A team of nurses, a doctor and an anesthetist who attended a COVID 19 training programme in Accra have successfully returned to the hospital not only with specialized skills but also with some essential items needed for Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) purposes at the COVID 19 Treatment Center at the Infectious Disease Unit of the Hospital at Effia.

The four-week training programme which was held at the Ghana Infectious Disease Center and the Ga East Municipal Hospital was attended by participants from five regions in Ghana. It was to provide the participants with skills that would enable them deliver quality care to COVID 19 patients.

Poised for action on their return, the team thought it wise to procure some vital items for the COVID Treatment Center. The items include: adhesive and caution tapes for demarcation per the IPC protocol, sprout can and a pharmaceutical mortar and pestle.

The team presented the items to the medical director of the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Dr. Joseph Kojo Tambil. Dr Tambil commended the team for the initiative and encouraged them to use their new skills to improve services at the COVID Treatment Center.
