BHPL is Certified in Hemo-Dialysis Treatment

A team of nurses and medical practitioners at Belize Healthcare Partners Limited has been certified in the field of hemo-dialysis treatment.  The accreditation follows an offer that was extended by the Mexican Nephrology Association to assist with putting together a local program that would meet international standards.  This included examinations geared at establishing protocols.  Ingrid Gomez is a certified dialysis nurse at BHPL.

“We had an invitation from the Mexican Nephrology Association, first of all to carry an emergency response team examination with them.  We were assisted to go for that certification and after that certification it required that eighty percent of the unit should have that same certification so that the unit could also be certified and qualified for international standards.  Other than doing a practical and theoretical exam, we also had to do certification of the unit which would imply, they had revision and supervision of the unit protocols and requirements internationally standardized and that are kept in our unit.  So we also had several evaluations by the Ministry of Health where we were guided, what needed to be done to provide service within our country.  Thereafter, we also did the same protocols and procedures by the Nephrology Association in Mexico because in Belize we don’t have a nephrology association so we were guided by the nephrology association in Mexico City.”
