United Bulawayo Hospitals expected to resume non-emergency surgeries this week

United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) is expected to resume non-emergency surgeries after it suspended them as they awaited delivery of pain killer, pethidine.

UBH chief executive officer Ms Nonhlanhla Ndlovu yesterday said,

It was a market issue and we had to attend to emergency cases only because our supplies had dwindled. We are expecting supplies of both pethidine and morphine this week so that we resume normal operations.

Due to the current economic environment, public health institutions are struggling to survive impacting negatively on their operations particularly drug stocks. Last month, Harare Central Hospital also temporarily suspended non-emergency surgeries due to shortage of the same pain killers and antibiotics.
