Centres of Excellence

Last SANBS Clinic meets almost 50% more than target!

 

The 4th and last blood clinic at Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre for 2017 has exceeded the SANBS target of 18. At total of 40 visited the clinic, with 14 being deferred, while 26 successfully donated.

 

Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre (LEHHC) Manager Niresh Bechan said, "We have once again, exceeded the South Africa National Blood Services (SANBS) donor target by almost fifty per cent. A special ‘thank you’ to all who donated. As a specialised and unique facility, blood supplies are critical to our everyday operations. This is even more so, with our Paediatric Hematology/ Oncology work and Paediatric Cardiac Surgery, among the many other important services we offer."

 

Third time donor and Professional Nurse Dheshni Ragaloo, Manager of the Paediatric Unit at Lenmed Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre had always been considered underweight and was therefore unable to donate blood previously. It is only recently that she managed to meet the SANBS weight requirements.

 

According to Dheshni, her inspiration for giving blood stems from my daily experience with my little patients, especially her little oncology, hematology, and cardiac patients. "For me, this is something extra and special, I can do to be a difference in someone’s life," said Dheshni
