Kamuli General Hospital is grappling with a stock out of surgical gloves. Apparently, expectant mothers and patients requiring examination that needs the use of gloves have to fork money from their pockets and buy them from private drug shops.

 

Jennifer Kyobula, an expectant mother and resident of Namwendwa Sub County, says she had to buy four pairs of gloves before midwifes at the hospital would attend to her. Eseza Kilikumwino underwent a caesarian section at Kamuli general hospital on Tuesday.

 

According to Kilikumwino, she bought 10 pairs of gloves at Shillings 2500 each to top up on the four pairs in the mama kit.
