C.H. Rinnie Hospital Faces Logistical Crunch

By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, May 31 (LINA) - The C. H. Rennie Memorial Hospital in Kakata lacks several basic logistical support that is impeding its full functioning as a referral hospital, said a report issued here.

The combined report on the status of the hospital for 2014- 2015 says the hospital lacks adequate drugs, medical supplies, ambulances, fuel supply, space to accommodate more patients, utility vehicle, generator and trained staff, among others.

The report further stated that due to the lack of the much needed logistical support to the hospital, administrators were finding it difficult to run the facility.

The two generators at the hospital are broken down, leaving the facility in darkness for over two weeks now.

The report further indicated that the hospital currently lacks Physician Assistants, Laboratory Technicians and Anesthetists.

It disclosed that at the hospital, 17 staff got infected during the second stage of Ebola epidemic hit the hospital in July 2014, from a local clinic in Margibi.

Of the 17 infected, 14 died, including nurses, lab technicians, X-ray technicians, nurse aids, security men, dispensers and anesthetist while three survived, including one physician assistant, lab assistant and housekeeper.

Margibi County, which gained county status in mid-1984, currently has a total population of 209,184.
