Hospital description

Lata Hospital is a small medical centre serving 20,000 people, providing general and tropical medical care. Most cases seen are infectious or gynaecological. It serves a dispersed population of about 20,000 people, but in reality is a small provincial centre with a few hundred people living here permanently.

The hospital has about 40 beds, about 20 nurses are working here. There is a small theatre, the usual wards, a TB ward, a small dental department and a malaria section. The main problems are malaria, abscesses, gynaecology related problems, asthma bronchiale, fractures and some rare cases. There are very few acute cases in the hospital as those suffering acute conditions are airlifted to bigger hospitals elsewhere in the Pacific.
