Soufriere hospital receives new equipment

GIS:-The IV Pumps will be Used Primarily in the ER, and on the Maternity Ward.

The Soufriere hospital is the recipient of two intravenous pumps donated by the Daniel Esnard Foundation of Team Unite.

The Team Unite Foundation is from Morne La Croix in Soufriere, and has been in existence since 2013. The funds to purchase the pumps were donated by Peter and Helen Rushmore from Scotland.

Intravenous (IV) pumps also called infusion pumps are capable of delivering fluids in large or small doses, and may be used to deliver nutrients or medication, such as insulin, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, and pain relievers to patients.

Officer in-Charge at the Soufriere Hospital, Nurse Candilia Wilson-Altenor, stated that the IV pumps will be used primarily in the emergency room, and the maternity and primary healthcare sections of the Soufriere Hospital. She expressed their gratitude to Team Unite and the Rushmore’s for this generous and much needed donation.
