The Administrator of the government hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, has stressed the need for urgent and regular supply of drugs to the hospital. Mr. David Sumo Roger urged the National Drugs Service (NDS) to improve its drugs distribution exercise to the hospital to avoid the institution going out of stock.
He said the government hospital in Tubmanburg is the only major referral hospital in the western region, so it should receive medical supplies regularly. Mr. Roger made the statement in an interview with the Liberia News Agency recently in Tubmanburg.
He said the hospital usually receives over 200 out-patients daily and more than 50 in-patients with various diseases, including malaria and diaherra, among others. He said the hospital has two assigned doctors with three other doctors coming to assist whenever the need arises.
He added that the hospital has qualified doctors and nurses to perform surgery and other operations, and that there are regular supply of electricity and water. Mr. Sumo praised the doctors and staff for their cooperation, adding that with support from one another, the hospital will adequately serve the public.
