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
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.
slide6
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.
