Refresher courses for personnel

The  National government did not factor the training component for personnel to operate machines and equipment supplied to County public hospitals.

The  remarks were made by Meru Presidential Delivery Unit Officer, Loise Shuma during a routine County Development Implementation and Coordination Committee (CDICC) tour of Meru Teaching and Referral Hospital, to inspect the condition and utilization of the imaging and radiography machines.

Shuma  who is the CDICC secretary regretted that some of the machines delivered to the hospital in 2017 were yet to be put to use due to lack of trained personnel.

Shuma  said the county government had an obligation to facilitate adequate personnel training as part of routine human resource capacity building for the hospital to deliver the high quality medical services expected by the public.

Leading  the committee, County Commissioner (CC), Alan  Machari commended the existing cordial working relations between the National and County government officials in ensuring the public was offered quality, timely and efficient services.

The  CC  urged the health sector to be more proactive and liaise with other players in addressing emerging issues likely to compromise medical services in the county.

“We may be answering to different employers directly but have a common duty of ensuring the public is well served through proper management of their taxes,” Machari observed.

Machari  commended the hospital personnel through the in-charge, Dr. James Kirimi for taking good care of the machines and equipment delivered by the National government.
