    • Summary of the results

    • Eight health facilities were studied

      Public = 2

      Private non-profit = 4

      Private for-profit = 2

    • Health facility size ranged from 8 to 1500 in-patient beds.

    • Number of emergency personnel ranged from 2 to 59

    • 50% had dedicated resuscitation rooms.


    Slide5 l.jpg

    • 50% had chest tubes and airway equipment.

    • Three (37.5%) had emergency units.

    • Seven (87.5%) had an ambulance in good condition.

    • 50% could offer ambulance services when called by telephone.

    • 50% had emergency personnel without specialized training.

    • Deduction

    • Insufficient emergency services

    • No capacity to manage prevailing patient load

    • No capacity to handle increased patient load from an Ambulance Service

      Recommendations

    • The ambulance service plan therefore would only be effective in the event of health service capacity increases commensurate with the expected patient load.
