The Health Ministry has initiated a 12-hour shift for nurses and doctors in hospitals to cater for any emergency.
Health spokesperson, Peni Namotu says the 12-hour shift will ease the workload and ensure efficient services to the public.
“We are maximising manpower capacity in health facilities and also we have 12-hour shifts for hospital officials. All hospitals will be on stand-by to provide timely intervention to the people who are affected. We also have adequate drug supplies in hospitals in the western division to cater for emergency cases.”
Namotu is advising the public to ensure that all drinking water is boiled and avoid consuming food that has been affected by the floods.
