14 students and 2 teachers from Westcoast International Secondary School were welcomed at Apollo Bramwell Hospital on Tuesday 02 June 2015 for an Educational trip and training on “Basic Life Support and Hand Hygiene”. The visit was conducted as part of a module on Hygiene and Safety in the school program for the students.
The core of the activity focused on the Basic Life Support Training for the students including a guided tour of the Apollo Bramwell Hospital Advanced Life Support Ambulance. Hand hygiene and washing techniques were demonstrated, supported by the use of the real time feedback using the ‘Glowgerm’ device by the Department of Infection Prevention and Control.
Students visited the Kitchen and meet with the Chef and the Dietician. They visited the laboratory, where they had a practical demonstration on how various medical microscopes are used. The participants, aided by the Biomedical Department, had a hands-on demonstration of the ”Da Vinci Surgical Robot”, Apollo Bramwell Hospital’s latest high-tech medical equipment. Participants` feedback stated that their visit was an awesome one and wish other schools experience the same.
Jane and I wanted to thank you so much for the care you and your colleagues took of Jane whist in Mauritius. Everything went well and Prakash did a great job of getting us to your clinic and back over the 6 dialysis days. We had a wonderful holiday and our children and grandchildren plus the other family all enjoyed it enormously. Best wishes to you all
