Tan Ann donates to Sibu Hospital

-

SIBU: Ta Ann Group contribute­d RM164,300 to Sibu Hospital yesterday for the purchase of two hydraulic trauma patient beds and a high-end portable intelligen­t transport ventilator­s to cope with the situation brought about by the Covid-19 outbreak here.

According to the hospital’s head of Emergency and Trauma Department, Dr Chan Swee Ping, they were in dire need of such beds to meet the growing number of Covid-19 patients.

One of the symptoms of Covid19 is shortness of breath, and those with severe respirator­y distress would need a ventilator to help them breathe normally.

The high-end ventilator­s can be used by adults, children, and even newborns. It can also provide up to nine hours of ventilatio­n to assist patients with long-distance transfer to Sarawak General Hospital. Many patients in the central region are sent to Sibu Hospital for treatment.

Therefore, Sibu Hospital needs additional medical equipment to ensure that patients can be properly treated. “I would like to extend our appreciati­on to Ta Ann Group for its generous donation for the benefit of Sibu folk,” Dr Chan said.
