Addu City, Maldives — The tertiary hospital in Addu City, Addu Equatorial Hospital (AEH) conducts endoscopy training sessions with the help of Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) to train the nurses and clinical assistants of AEH better.
AEH tweeted to inform that they are helping their nurses improve their skills and learn more by conducting training sessions on endoscopy with the help of IGMH.
Along with this, AEH also conducted chemotherapy training sessions for their nurses recently with the help of Hulhumale’ hospital to help the nurses of AEH improve their skills.
Despite AEH being a tertiary hospital, the hospital has not been able to provide services to their patients at a tertiary level. Due to this, several complains have been raised by the locals as they have to travel to Malé city despite having the needed facilities in their homeland.
However, after the newly appointed CEO of AEH, Dr. Mohamed Solih has taken the responsibility of the hospital, citizens are expecting the services of the tertiary hospital to get better at a fast phase and for the hospital to use the appropriate machineries to treat sick people.
Dr. Solih previously noted that the estimated MVR 180 million budget for the year 2021 is not ideal and that the hospital is roughly at the stage where Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) was during 2006 and 2007, which at the time was allocated MVR 350 million as the yearly budget.
However, Dr. Solih said that while the budget constraints are understandable, he believes that the government would provide more funding when justified.
