Tuesday, January 30, 2024

In assisting nurses and doctors providing quality nursing care, BSP Capital – a Subsidiary Business arm of BSP, delivered 12 new Infusion Pumps to the Port Moresby General Hospital (POMGen).

An Infusion Pump is a medical device that delivers fluids, such as nutrients and medications like insulin or other hormones, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, and pain relievers into a patient's body in controlled amounts.

BSP Capital General Manager Richard La’a when presenting the item said, “BSP continues to procure necessary equipment and support to our health sector as part of our community commitment as we believe that healthy people are productive, hence, they are likely to participate in the process of building a healthy nation,” added Mr La’a.

“We are also aware that many health centres in our communities are running on minimal medical supplies. The health officers work as hard as they can to supply the best care available, but often, it is not enough. In considering this, it pleases the bank to deliver this equipment to assist our nurses and doctors in delivering quality health care to our people,” said La’aa.
