SHCF needs X-ray machine

SHCF needs X-ray machine

ALABEL, Sarangani (April 16, 2020) – Dr. Arvin Alejandro, provincial health officer, requests for the procurement of a mobile X-ray machine to be used at Sarangani Health Care Facility (SHCF) on April 14 during the 2nd regular council meeting of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PRDDMC) at the conference room, JLC Building. “This request came out because of our case yesterday about a patient who was not fully diagnosed by the SHCF and in the absence of X-ray, we just tagged the patient as PUI which if we tag it as a PUI, ang mangyayari nyan hanggang sa community level magkakaroon tayo ng PUM just because we do not have an X-ray to rule out pneumonia for the said patient because of the difficulty of breathing,” said Alejandro. An X-ray machine is one of the devices that can be used to identify and categorize patients from coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
