COVID Relief – Multipara Monitor - Hospital Mulativu

Mulatiuv District General Hospital is the ONLY hospital with a consultation coverage up in the entire district. The hospital managed the critically ill patients but used to transferred the COVID-positive patients to the nearby hospitals since the hospital lacked the necessary equipment and infrastructure to handle the situation.. But Due to the current pandemic outbreak, nearby hospitals like Vavniya, Jaffna was no longer able to accept patients from other districts due to the volume and the risk. The Mulativu hospital had to step up to handle the COVID cases in-house and therefore they transformed the COVID suspected unit to a COVID treatment center. This new COVID treatment center needed a Multipara monitor patient’s vitals and reached out to Raise Sri Lanka for assistance.
