HIS MAJESTY VISITS SCOTT HOSPITAL ON CHRISTMAS DAY

His Majesty King Letsie III visited patients particularly children admitted at Scott Hospital, Morija on Christmas day.

His Majesty also donated 225 blankets to the hospital.

Accompanied by the Minister of Health, His Majesty annually and routinely visits the hospital with special attention given to children admitted at the Hospital to encourage their speedy recovery while on the other hand demonstrating love to the sick.

This was disclosed in an interview with LENA by the Manager Hospital Nursing Services, Sr. Elelloang Ramatla who said the Hospital appreciated the visit and the donation of blankets to the hospital by His Majesty. 

Sr. Ramatla said His Majesty through the donation addressed the challenge of blankets that the hospital experienced, saying they will be marked and then be distributed to different wards of the hospital.

His Majesty also presented gifts to four new born babies, who were delivered on Saturday (24 December, 2016) as the hospital did not receive deliveries of newly born babies on Christmas day, said Sr. Ramatla.

Talking about the casualties registered this Christmas holidays, Sr. Ramatla said this year the hospital attended nine people who were assaulted by walking sticks who included eight men and a woman. 

She said no casualties resulting from gun injuries or car accidents were seen this year.

Meanwhile 'Mamohato Memorial Hospital registered four deliveries of newly born babies, three girls and a boy on Christmas day.
