- THE OPERATING THEATRE/CENTRAL STERILISATION
The St. Martin De Porres Catholic General Hospital Njinikom has good standard equiped operating theatres thanks to support from the Orthopaedic Team from the Netherlands that saw the needs of the community and collaborated in equipped the theatre as such. The hospital has 4 operating theatres; one for septic surgeries and one for obstetric surgeries.
The other 2 are for orthopaedic and general surgeries. Some examples of major surgeries that are done here include Total Hip Arthroplasty, corrective limb surgeries, laparotomy, Ventriculo-peritoneal shunting, thyroidectomy, hysterectomy, myomectomy, prostatectomy, skin grafting, maxillo-facial surgeries, and all forms of orthopaedic, gynaecological and general surgeries.
Attached to the theatre is a multipurpose sterilization unit that serves the entire hospital as far as good standard sterilization is concerned.
