Ganta Hospital to Modernize OR

first_imgThe Ganta United Methodist Hospital (GUMH) is modernizing its operating theater and making improvements to the obstetric ward (OB ward), the hospital’s administrator has said.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer recently, the administrator, Patrick Martor, said with funding from the Global Ministry and United Methodist Church, the hospital will rehabilitate and furnish its operating theater with modern medical equipment.He said the OB ward will be included in the renovation with the improvement of sanitary conditions such as tiling the walls to enable cleaners to effectively do their work.“We are going to bring in modern medical facilities for the OB ward, tile the entire wall and install a sliding door,” he said.Since last year the GUMH has been under renovation, giving the hospital a much needed facelift.The hospital’s morgue was also renovated with the installation of sanitation facilities and air conditioners.“We will be relocating the powerhouse and clear the entire grounds for a car park and emergency services,” said Martor.The Ganta United Methodist Hospital is one of the oldest referral hospitals in Nimba County. It also runs an annex in the nearby Guinean town of Djeke.It may be recalled that in 2014, the hospital was almost downgraded to a clinic when it ran out of medicines and other medical supplies owing to allegations of fraud, which resulted in the withdrawal of donor support.But since Martor’s administration took over a few years ago, things have improved, with a key project, “Drug Revolving Fund,” launched to keep the hospital adequately supplied with drugs.“In this scheme, any money generated from the sale of medicines goes to purchase more medicines to make more available,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Ganta United Methodist Hospital Administrator Patrick Martor.

Northern Health reveals new Cancer Control Strategy

first_imgAccording to Dr. Chapman, patients and physicians are pleased with the new strategy.Northern Health hosted several Cancer Control Workshops in September of 2009.  During those workshops local residents were given the opportunity to provide input on this strategy.Officials with Northern Health hope to have the entire plan implemented by the time the Cancer Centre opens in Prince George in 2012. By Adam ReaburnNorthern Health showed of its plan to help Cancer patients in Northeastern BC Thursday.The plan has been in development over the last three years with the help of Doctor Ronald Chapman and various community consultation meetings.  The goal of the new plan is to make treatment of cancer in Northern BC, as easy as possible for the patients and care providers.  – Advertisement -Northern Health has implemented several new programs and strategies to help make the process of getting treatment easier and faster.  One of the new innovations is telemedicine.  Telemedicine allows the patient to stay in his or her own community and still be able to consult with a doctor or another member of the Northern Health team.With the new Cancer Centre currently being built in Prince George, Northern Health also hopes to reduce the travel times for patients that do need more specialized cancer care.  Currently patients travel to Vancouver or Edmonton and the hope is once the facility opens in 2012, physicians in this area will start referring people to Prince George.  The new Cancer Treatment Centre will also feature a lodge that will provide a bed and three meals a day for a patient visiting Prince George for $37 a night.Northern Health admits local patients will go where they have family support and they hope the new Centre in Prince George will add another option for treatment.Advertisementlast_img read more

DD FOOD: HAVE-A-GO AT AVOCADO

first_imgDD FOOD: There’s no getting away from the avocado. It was the most pinned food on Pinterest last year and remains a top seller for Irish consumers.Avocados are a stone fruit with a delicious creamy texture that grow in warm climates and are often a feature of Mexican and South American cuisine.This creamy-fleshed, versatile fruit can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. Also known as an alligator pear or butter fruit, the versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.The good news for avocado eaters is the fruit’s fats provide nutrients, reduce bad cholesterol levels and are said to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.Hass avocados are oval shaped with knobbly-textured purplish-black skin. The Hass variety of avocado is the most popular, accounting for 80% of all the avocados eaten worldwide.Consumers prefer its creamy, slightly nutty flavour. Retailers prefer its durability and longer shelf life. Green fruit can take anywhere from two to seven days to ripen when stored at room temperature. You can speed the process by placing your Hass avocados in a paper bag with an apple for 2 to 3 days at room temperature. If you want to slow the process down, simply keep your avocado in the fridge.Avocado’s popularity is showing no signs of slowing down: sales have grown by 31 percent in the last year, with retailers earning a huge £34 million in 2015 from our obsession.If you are an avocado lover but are getting bored of just mashing it on toast every morning, try these recipes to mix things up a bit.Avocados are currently on offer in Aldi as part of the super six weekly offers-39cent for two.Avocado Breakfast Boost MethodPrepare the avocados by cutting lengthways all the way around, working around the stoneGently twist the two halves apartTap the blade of a knife into the stone and twist gently to releaseThen remove the skin of the avocados by placing the halves of the avocados face down and peeling off the skinCut the mango into half and remove the stoneScoop the flesh away from the skin and place into the blender along with the avocadoBlend until the avocado and mango have mixed togetherPour the smoothie into glasses over crushed iceBaked avocados with eggPreheat the oven to 425 degrees.Slice the avocados in half, and take out the pit. Scoop out about two tablespoons of flesh from the centre of the avocado, just enough so the egg will fit snugly in the centrePlace the avocados in a small baking dish.Crack an egg into each avocado half. Try your best to crack the yolk in first, then let the egg whites spill in to fill up the rest of the shell.Place in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the size of your eggs and avocados. Just make sure the egg whites have enough time to set.Remove from garnish with chives. Avocado with tomato bruschettaPreheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice baguette diagonally into sixteen 1/2-inch-thick slices; brush both sides with a total of olive oil.
