I am writing this letter after spending 10 days in Settlers Hospital, as I was infected with Covid-19. I almost lost the battle to the virus due to short breath and other associated complications. There were also challenges on the part of the Hospital that need addressing, but I’m confident under the stewardship of [acting CEO]Sr Ngesi that can they be speedily sorted , She seems like someone who knows what she is doing and her best quality is that she is down to earth and she listens.
* The oxygen capacity needs to be upgraded in the hospital so it can be equal to the demand.
* They need to train more people to deal with the oxygen changing;
* They must provide a car for those guys on standby so when they are needed in hospital they can be there in no time;
* They must try to recruit more experienced staff to [back up]their staff – more especially in those Covid-19 wards: nurses are not complaining there and they give their all – but they’re short-staffed and their conditions are unbearable.
