The Mustique Charitable Trusts visited Milton Cato Memorial Hospital on June 8th to see the hand santiser dispensers that have been installed in various locations in the hospital with grant funds.
Sixty-six dispensers have been in installed under the EC$44,000 project, which includes santiser liquid replacements.
Grace Walters, hospital administrator, thanked the Trusts for this generous donation to increase the number of dispensers for use by doctors and nurses.
She said this will assist in the prevention of infections from communicable diseases and also reduce the incidence of hospital acquired infections.
Lavinia Gunn, Administration Director of the Trusts, stated that the Trusts welcomed the opportunity to continue giving support to medical services at the hospital.
It was noted that the dispensers were already in use. She thanked Facey Trading for installing the dispensers supplied by Kimberly Clarke, free of cost and for their advice during the project.
Walters, her management team, Andrew Williams, deputy hospital administrator, Sheroline Primus, the infection control nurse, Viola Richardson, acting senior nursing officer and other members of the senior nursing team gave the visitors a tour of several locations where the dispensers had been installed.
The MCT was established in 2008 with the mission to improve the opportunities for children, young people and vulnerable adults while supporting the development of sustainable local communities throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
