DELSUTH management faults report calming its doctors lament shortage of face masks, PPEs

By Ovasa Ogaga,

The Management of Delta State University Teaching Hospital, DELSUTH, led by Dr Onome Ogueh, has debunked the report in Punch Newspaper of 6th April 2020, titled: DELSUTH Doctors lament the shortage of facemasks, others, noting that the report is far from the truth.

The Management maintained that despite the worldwide shortage of PPE’s, DELSUTH,  with the support of Delta State Government has had a constant supply of face masks, gloves, hand sanitizers and other personal protective equipment which they have consistently made available for use by DELSUTH staff during this period.

The management has also developed a screening protocol for the COVID 19 in DELSUTH which has been followed strictly with triage centres established at all clinics /ward entrances as well as the main hospital gate to ensure that suspected cases are identified whilst making sure that some form of clinical services delivery continues within the hospital.

The team also stated that management is aware that the State Government is planning remuneration for all staff involved in the COVID 19 response team.

Management is also in the process of discussing with an insurance company to provide cover for staff involved in the COVID 19 response team adding that all hands must be on deck at this critical period and we are counting on all members of staff to support management in this process.
