A DONATION of equipment to the Port Shepstone Hospital will ensure that administrative processes are speedy and efficiently conducted and that more training sessions are made possible.

This comes after the Road Accident Fund donated R500 000 to the hospital for laptops, projectors, external hard drives and a camera.

Hospital board chairman, Reverend John Grubb, thanked everyone involved in making the donation possible.

“This will ensure proper filing of patient records and that the different departments are run more smoothly and efficiently,” he said.

Grubb said he sourced the equipment last year and received a quote from Game.

However the purchase was not possible at that time.

“When I returned to the store this year, the price had escalated by R3 500, but Game was kind enough to give us the equipment at the originally quoted price,” he said.

The hospital’s acting CEO Dr Babusisiwe Dlamini-Kunene said the hospital had been waiting eagerly for such equipment.

“Files are often misplaced. Patients information change and now we will be able to update these records. We also won’t have to deal with looking for storage space,” she said.
