PORT SHEPSTONE Regional Hospital held its open day last Wednesday. Over 150 people attended the informative day where they were taken around the different departments of the hospital by the staff.

Hospital spokesperson Phumza Morai said the hospital management and staff were delighted to see so many people at this year’s open day.

“The people took part in a huge variety of educational activities, all designed to give everyone a chance to find out what goes on behind the scenes,” said Morai.

She said about 15 stands and activity areas were made accessible to everyone and visitors­ explored the wards and found out how patients are treated.

“Copies of hospital brochures­, the service charter, annual report, newsletters and other information material on various health topics were handed out for visitors to read at home,” she said.

Community members were also given a chance to pose questions about patient care and service delivery.

Morai said the visitors also watched videos and role played by ICU staff about what happens in the theatres, intensive care unit and the phamarcy.

Among the guests was Hibiscus Coast Municipality deputy­ mayor Johan De Wet who gave words of support and encouraged the community to work with the hospital.

Hospital CEO, Gabriel Khawula, notified visitors about the hospital referral patterns and procedures that need to be followed when accessing services offered by the hospital.
