As a part of the requirement for the certification of the dialysis unit, the nurses who work in unit, took a training at the Miguel Rosado Dialysis Center in Veracruz, Mexico. This morning Belize Healthcare Partners Limited held a short ceremony to celebrate their accomplishment. Love news was there and spoke with Nurse Ingrid Gomez, the Unit Manager, for the Dialysis Unit about the hospital’s accomplishment.
Nurse Ingrid Gomez: “It was ERU which is in English Emergency Response Team in Hemodialysis which is specified directly for Hemodialysis and that was done in Mexico City: The first session was one week and then the following session was another week in Vera Cruz and that included also a congress that we had to attend for one week. The Certification program required that 90% of the staff working in the unit has to pass the examination so that the unit can be certified internationally. I had to be there for a week and after I also had to make plans for the following plans for the staff to complete the examination and after passing the examination with above 90% then we were granted the opportunity to be recognized internationally.”
