ADMISSION ROOM

For patients needing observation whilst in an acute phase of illness, such as dehydration, migraine, febrile children, monitoring following blood loss, or severe malaria, the Clinic's two-bedded Admission Room is available. Staffed 24-hours, it enables the Clinic nurses to more closely monitor patients over a 12-hour period. Outside of this, referral to the hospital will be arranged.

The Admission Room is also used as a postnatal resting room, where women are encouraged to stay at the Clinic for six hours following their birth to allow the midwives to provide the support and care recommended in the immediate postnatal period, as well as performing clinical assessments before the woman and their baby return to their family.
