A ward at UTH

The University Teaching Hospital (UTH) has completed installing anaesthetic machines in its 18 theatres.

UTH Assistant Public Relations Manager Natalie Mashikolo explained that only 18 anaesthetic machines have been installed out of the 20 that were procured by government.

Mrs. Mashikolo said two of the anaesthetic machines have been kept for future use because UTH only has 18 theatres.

She told ZANIS in an interview today that the machines will improve patients’ care in theatres at the institution.

She said before the 20 anaesthetic machines were bought, the UTH had only a few machines which were not enough for all the theatres.

Anaesthetic machines, which cost between US$15,000 and US$20,000 each, help patients breathe when they are benumbed during surgery in the theatre.

UTH is Zambia’s largest referral hospital.

    • @ chiluba FTJ, maybe the skills development should be for the general public who are fond of provoking health workers.

  2. Even people who are trash at their workplaces, people who just leave their jackets in their offices and go gallivanting, when they go to hospitals, they want to have a go at health workers and accuse them of all sorts of things. People like FTJ Chiluba probably spend only 30minutes of their work day actually working but have the guts to condemn healthcare workers. Healthcare workers are actually the most hardworking civil servants in Zambia yet all they get is insults from dimwits like Chiluba
