    Some simple tools for the maternity ward team

    Day 302

    A Clean Slate

    One of the biggest challenges at any clinic is keeping things clean. And at the maternity clinic in Bidi Bidi, this couldn’t be more true.

    “Literally everything here needs to be clean for the mother’s safety,” said Jackie, one of the nurses there.

    But without certain tools, the maternity staff was having a hard time keeping up with the need. Jackie had some ideas for how to change that.

    “Firstly, we need surgical gloves and soap,” she said.

    These two items are partners in crime when it comes to battling infection. Having gloves on hand is the number one protectant for mothers and their babies, and soap is the key ingredient for starting off medical care with a clean slate.

    The hard work at the clinic never stops. But with this small adjustment, the medical team can do their jobs confidently – and cleanly.

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
