A Big Day for Dialysis Treatment in Belize

Ingrid Gomez

Today marks the culmination of that process.  For Gomez, it is a momentous occasion because the unit that they have put together at BHPL is being internationally recognized.

 

Ingrid Gomez, Certified Dialysis Nurse

“It’s a big day, it’s something big for the hospital itself because we have other units also but it’s the first unit in the country that has been recognized internationally.  So we have met standards internationally, not only for the country but as a world.  So we have been following protocols and procedures for such certification today.  This is a surplus for any unit that would be able to do it because we are not only prepared as a nurse but you are prepared specifically for a hemo-dialysis unit to attend any emergency that may arise.  It’s not the same to have a dialysis patient in an emergency and to have a regular patient in an emergency, so you would be able to identify the difference and be able to tackle the situation at the moment.”
