Maternity consists of 15 beds and 1 small private room. Staffing = a ward in-charge, 3 staff nurses and 4 Assistant Nurse Midwives. On average there are around 1600 births per year, although we do see a large number of complicated deliveries often due to patients presenting late at hospital - obstructed labour, eclampsia, breeched deliveries, and hemorrhaging to name a few. Also plans are in place to start teaching the Skilled Birth Attendant training course in the near future.
