Rwamagana hospital is a relatively large hospital, it has 11 departments where maternity is the busiest. The maintenance department has three Biomedical Equipment technicians (BMETs) that are well trained and organized. Having three interns in the workshop did not help them a lot as we expected since they do not have a large equipment graveyard and they do preventive maintenance often. Instead it helped us learn from them and acquire new skills that we did not learn in our first month of training.
This blog contains some of the activities we did in the past weeks.
Unfortunately, we were not able to repair the ironing machine, because we did not have coils to replace in the motor to make it work.
We have a tradition to go to a coffee shop (Heart of Hope or Art of Hope coffee shop according to google) that is a 20 min bus drive from our hotel every Wednesday after work for dinner.
