Uasin Gishu County Hospital Managers and facility in-charge have been asked to discharge their duties diligently in their respective areas of work.
Speaking during the 3rd quarter Indicators, performance and general service delivery review meeting at the County headquarters, Health County Executive Committee Member Mrs. Everlyne Rotich asked County Health Management Team (CHMT) and facility managers to ensure that they do proper planning in their day to day running of their facilities.
She noted that proper planning and good record-keeping on the required drugs and supplies should be done to avoid wastage and shortage of the same in the county-owned facilities.
She further urged the CHMT to pay great attention to service delivery and at the same time on patient and client-response, adding that her Department has taken several measures to improve the livelihoods of Uasin Gishu residents by providing quality healthcare in all its’ facilities.
Mrs. Rotich focus should be on antenatal health saying that good care during pregnancy was important for the mother’s health and the development of the unborn baby.
“Pregnancy is a crucial time to promote healthy behaviors and parenting skills,” said the midwifery expert.
Good ANC links the woman and her family with the formal health system, increases the chance of using a skilled attendant at birth and contributes to good health through the life cycle.
Her sentiments were also echoed by the Health Chief Officer Dr. Gregory Ondieki who said that poor supervision was tantamount to neglect of duty.
