The official presentation of the awards-Excellence in Infection Prevention (IP) and Reproductive Health Services (RHS) took place on Wednesday and was presided over by Director of Nursing Services in the Ministry of Health Shira Bandazi.

Speaking at the function, Bandazi commended the hospital for its commitment towards the delivery of excellent health services.

“Having toured the hospital, it is clear that the hospital deserves these awards. I congratulate and commend management and staff of the hospital for this extraordinary achievement,” said Bandazi.

She however warned of complacency which she said might lead to the revocation of the awards.

The Excellence award is a recognition system coordinated by the Ministry of Health in collaboration with USAID funded Support for Service Delivery Intergration (SSDI).

Other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) helping in the implementation of SSDI are Care Malawi, Save the Children and Plan International with assistance for another international organization known as JHPIEGO.

Together, they have been supporting several health facilities including Mtengowanthenga.

Speaking on behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff of the hospital after receiving the awards, Monsignor Francis Sonkhani pledged continued and improved services with the hospital vision of “Healthy and holistic life for all”.

    Congratulations to Mtengowanthenga, the hospital tries.

    I sympathise on the child’s loss of arm, human beings are prone to errors, unfortunately a child lost an arm in the process. May god bless the child that he rises above this disability and be a star in whatever he does.

    I HAVE A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE TO SHARE WITH YOU ABOUT MTENGOWANTHENGA. SOME 5 YEARS AGO MY BROTHER’S CHILD HAD HER HAND AMPUTATED BECAUSE THE NURSE FORGOT TO REMOVE THE TUBBER BAND WHICH SHE USED TO TIE ON THE CHILD’S ARM AS SHE WAS TRYING TO FORCE THE BLOOD VESSELS COME OUT SO THAT SHE COULD ADMINSITER A DRIP ON HER. THE RUBBER BAND WAS LEFT THEIR FOR THE WHOLE NIGHT AND BLOOD COULD NOT CIRCULATE TO THE LOWER PART OF THE ARM.

    BY THE TIME IT WAS MORNING, THE LOWER PART OF THE ARM WAS CEASED TO FUNCTION AND THE DOCTORS RECOMMENDED THAT THE ARM BE AMPUTATED. THE CHILD HAS ONLY ONE ARM AS I SPEAK. UNFORTUNATELY, THE FATHER REFUSED TO LET THE ISSUE GO PUBLIC. SO WHEN YOU SAY MTENGOWANTHENGA OFFERS EXCELLENT SERVICES, I DISAGREE. MAY BE MA SHINGLES OMWEWO KAPENA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I once visited this hospital when my sister was suffering from shingles after getting the tips that they offer the services. I tell you, these people , are super. I had wasted time going to govt hospital and nasty clinics.

    They gave her drugs that burned the shingles within three days. I ma talking about more than 8 years ago and they are still crowned the best service provider. Keep it up!!

    Can you teach your fellow Dr Peter Kumpalume of ministry of health to improve health services please?
