Keysaney Hospital
« Reply #2 on: January 10, 2009, 07:34:02 PM »

I am dr.abdullahi awale , i am working keysaney hospital, if i try to give u a full information about keysaney hospital.
Keysaney hospital is the only medical facility in Mogadishu North offering surgical services for the war-wounded. The transfer of casualties to other medical facilities is hazardous in the current situation.

Keysaney hospital was opened by the ICRC in 1992 and handed over to the Somali Red Crescent Society in 1994. Over the past 15 years the hospital has provided the Somali population with inestimable services.

Mogadishu is a difficult place to live and the situation is very volatile. Many weapons circulate in the city. Somalia is still among the countries with the highest number of weapon-wounded per year in Africa. Since 1992, Keysaney Hospital has treated over 60,000 people with gunshot injuries.

We receive more than 10 patients every day that suffer from wounds inflicted by gunshots or grenade explosions and another two or three with stab wounds. During the recent fighting most of the injured were combatants, however, patients are now often civilians, even women and children, caught up in the crossfire or injured as a result of crime, looting or robbery. To give an example, my freind was ambushed in his car. The assailants fired at him and the bullet remained in his body. We are treating him in Keysaney now. Fortunately, his life is not in danger.

Technically, we are very well prepared. We have all the necessary skills, equipment and medication. Most of our staff has worked in the hospital for 16 years. They have learned to live with the reality in Somalia. Every morning when the nurses and doctors come to work they expect to receive injured patients. Some people have even been treated at the hospital several times.

Our job is to make sure they get better, whether they need our help once or ten times. The biggest challenge is to convince the wounded to stay in the hospital until they are cured. We estimate that about 500 people with freshly dressed wounds are still scattered in Mogadishu and the surrounding cities. They left the hospitals much too early. Many of them feared getting arrested. If they do not get proper treatment they can die, especially the ones with severe wounds such as abdominal injuries.

Edna Adan Maternity & Teaching Hospital

The hospital is situated in Hargeisa, Republic of Somaliland.

The hospital is a non-profit charity that was built by Edna Adan Ismail who donated her UN pension and other personal assets to build the hospital in order to address the grave health problems that endanger the lives of women and children in the Horn of Africa.

The construction of the hospital was started on the 1st of January 1998, and as it progressed, private individuals, business people in Somaliland and elsewhere, as well as international organizations, also made valuable contributions enabling the hospital to become functional on the 9th of March, 2002.

From the date of opening until now, the hospital has admitted  more than 8000 women, delivered 8600 babies, seen more than 51,000 patients in the outpatient clinic, performed nearly 90,000 laboratory tests, providing training courses in, amongst others, 3 year general nursing (3 classes), midwifery, laboratory techniques, first aid courses for school teachers, and computer literacy courses.

The Project has the approval of the Government of Somaliland, and the Local Government of Hargeisa has donated the Land that measures 9,600 square meters. The hospital is on the main road near the Bank of Somaliland at Dumbuluq, and is located in a less affluent area that contains a third of the population of the city in a part of the town that has never had a hospital in the past. The site is centrally and conveniently located, is well served by public transport making it easily accessible for emergency referral.

In diagnosis think of the easy first.
