Administrator Donates TV set To Patients AT Level Five Hospital.

The Ministry of Interior in Migori, through the local County Commissioner Joseph Rotich, has donated a television set to patients at the Migori referral hospital.
The gadget was handed over to the hospital’s administrator Mr. Castry Otuoma by Mr, Rotich during a meeting of the county development implementation coordination committee (CDICC) held at the administrator’s office.
The set will be mounted at the renal section of the hospital to help patients calm their brains away from the pains and boredom they experience while on their treatment beds.
Mr. Rotich announced the donation recently after he was touched by the state of hopelessness and boredom registered on the faces of the patients he found undergoing dialysis treatment in the ward.
He had led a team of CIDCC members to the hospital on a mission to inspect the multi-million medical equipment donated by the national government to the facility.
“I decided to make the offer after noticing the state of affairs of the patients knowing very well that watching the numerous entertaining programmes on various TV channels could help soothe patients and make them forget stressful issues crowding their minds,” he said.
He appealed to other well-wishers to emulate the gesture and donate towards making patients feel comfortable as they receive their prescribed treatment in the health facilities.
Mr. Otuoma said the TV will go a long way in easing patients’ stress while in the ward, adding that the management of the facility was also doing everything possible to improve services to all its customers.
“We are also doing everything possible to ensure that our patients feel comfortable and received better services when they are in all the health facilities under our management,” he said.
The renal section of the hospital had recently undergone a major boost after the installation of four serviceable dialysis machines from the national government.
