We support the health system and its professionals in the fight against COVID-19. To this end, we provide them with the necessary means to fight the pandemic and save lives.
We contributed by purchasing personal protection equipment for doctors which was donated to the Medical Association, Hospital María and the Ministry of Health. The donation consisted of the purchase of 27,000 surgical caps, 150,000 surgical masks, 27,180 kn95 masks, 1,580 face protection screens, 6,000 protective goggles, 1,250 boxes of latex gloves, 14,000 surgical gloves, 2,800 surgical gowns, 10,500 shoe covers and 6,114 biosafety suits.
Through the Association of Physicians at the Hospital Leonardo Martinez, we are going to collaborate in the implementation of a new room to attend the medical personnel who request it, whether they be doctors, nurses, health workers, etc. Our donation includes 6 sets of equipment made up of airvos, monitors, beds and lecterns, as well as 11 infusion pumps.
We collaborated in implementing a mechanical ventilation and air conditioning system in 4 COVID-19 rooms at the Hospital Nacional Cardiopulmonar El Tórax. This center has been appointed by the government as a reference center during the crisis in Tegucigalpa. This ventilation system treats and filters the air in the rooms to avoid increasing the patients' viral load (worsening their clinical condition) and reducing the exposure of the health care staff to the virus.
