Management of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi has reiterated its appeal made over the years to the ministry of health for support to procure a new and bigger oxygen plant.
The current oxygen plant at the hospital is obsolete and needs decommissioning for new plant to be installed.
The plant is operating below capacity and the hospital is still sourcing significant portion of its oxygen needs from private providers to augment the in-house production of the product.
This development has compelled the hospital to buy 150 bottles of cylinders a day amounting to three thousand Ghana cedis monthly.
The CEO of KATH Dr. Joseph Akpaloo speaking during the hospital’s end of 2016 performance review workshop urged the hospital doctors and nurses to manage the little oxygen available judiciously.
