Tents ease space issue

THE tents set up outside the Ba Mission Hospital have helped improve the plight of the sick.

Last week, the issue of space was raised and attended to by the health authorities with the assistance of the provincial officer.

Ba provinicial administrator Sitiveni Tavaga said the flow of service now was much better than last week.

"So from Friday, patients were seen and treated in the tents provided in front of the hospital," he said.

"Now patients do not have to wait, we have tried to make their visit less stressful."

The hospital has reorganised the resting rooms with the men's ward being moved into the post-natal clinic, and also the children's ward being cleared temporarily.

Mr Tavaga said the flow of patients had become more steady in regards to those coming with dengue-like symptoms.

He said the main focus this week would be on the anti-dengue campaign.
