The equipment for the newly constructed theater at Ndu Baptist Health Centre (NBHC) has been set up. The installation on November 3, 2021, was done by a cream of Anaesthetists from Nkwen Baptist Hospital and Banso Baptist Hospital.
Mbah John, Nurse Anaesthetist says NBHC is very fortunate given that it has all that a theatre needs to function. “All we are waiting for now to go operational, is personnel. That will be mobilized in the days ahead,” he assured.
Standard wise, the equipment acquired for the NBHC theatre is state of the art. Gwei Emmanuel, another Anesthetist says the equipment at the theatre is exactly what the facility needs to offer quality care to clients. “Besides being state-of-the-art equipment, we have a surplus of equipment here, which means in case of a breakdown, we can immediately replace it while pursuing repairs, Mr. Gwei assured.
The project is made up of theatre, surgical and private wards.
Jato Alex, Nurse Practitioner during the provisional inspection of the project appreciated the team for every effort made to get the project done. “I want to thank God for strength, the leadership of the Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Health Services, and drivers who worked tirelessly to get the equipment and material to Ndu,” Mr. Alex remarked with satisfaction.
The construction of a theatre at NBHC is a welcome relief to the populace who have borne the pain of losing loved ones who needed just a simple surgical procedure but could not get it for lack of such a facility.
