SPWS Fund Raising Campaign2011

MAYO Present Scenario: Mayo hospital is one of the largest hospitals in South East Asia and is a centre of excellence for public benefit. It had bed capacity of 300 beds on the Day of Independence (1947) but now is extended up to 2399 beds. The situation of Intensive care facilities available on surgical floor is quite grave . Apart from the fact that there is not a single ventilator available on whole of the surgical floor, the floor virtually lacks equipments that are required for the monitoring of severely ill patients. There is no proper compressed air and suction facility available in HDUs.

SPWS Quotation: SPWS will donate a range of equipment and upgrade the existing non-functional equipment in HDU’s of respective wards.

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
