THE DUNCAN HOSPITAL

Fellowship for transformation through caring..................

Support Services

Clinical Research Department

                                   Making research a part of the life of Duncan Hospital has encouraged us by seeing improvements in management, answers to question, and some excellent teamwork. Poisonings, snakebites, glucocorticoid misuse, hypokalemic periodic paralysis, and acute undifferentiated fevers have been investigated. There is now follow up research planned in some of these topics as well as hospital and community health projects which are making a difference in these locally relevant issues.

                                    Research projects are being done by junior doctors as part of their Family Medicine training and student nurses as part of their GNM curriculum.

Currently there are projects happening in Medicine, Nursing and Community with the hope that as time goes by other departments will consider research in their fields.

X-Ray Department

                    The department performs routine X-Rays, as well as special procedures including contrast studies including barium series, intravenous pyelograms (IVP) and hysterosalpingograms (HSG). A large number of dental X-Rays are also done regularly The X-Ray department team perform ECG’s in the OPD and inpatient wing regularly.

            There are two pharmacies supplying medications in the hospital: one for OPD patients and the other especially for inpatients. The outpatient pharmacy starts from 8:00 am and closes at 6:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday. The inpatient pharmacy runs 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Laboratory

                       The laboratory services are a significant component of the clinical services provided by our medical team.The Duncan lab has constantly strived to maintain high quality and internal quality checks and external quality assurance systems have been put in place. A center for training in lab technology has been developed for both formal and informal training for EHA lab technicians. The presence of the lab school with both DMLT (Diploma in Medical and Laboratory Technology) and BMLT (Bachelor in Medical and Laboratory Technology) students, undergoing training has been a further stimulus to adhere to high standards.

It strives to reduce expenses by resolving most issues in house. There are currently approximately 400 pieces of equipment being looked after by the biomedical department.
