She further described how the bed is, “also electronically operated, as patients coming from the ward no longer have to be lifted by one person or two individuals causing damage or hurt to the staff member, patients can be transferred by sliding them across on to the bed.”Sonia-bed-donation-(1)

Meanwhile Ms. Antoinette Silcott, the X-ray specialist, thanked Miss Charles on behalf of the X-Ray department, “for so gratefully securing the donation of our Ultra Sound couch,” explaining that the present one is not adjustable.
