REPORTING · 31st December 2009
Doctor Derek Carstens was called upon to update the Kitimat Health Advisory Group on Saturday, December 5th about the Max Lange Fund purchase of Endoscopic Scope for the ER.
He explained that on Tuesday, December 8th, a meeting was scheduled with the fund executives to sign the final document to order the tower.
"The two scopes have been ordered already. They are on site. [...] Unfortunately they are incompatible with the old tower we have. We can't use them until the new one shows up," said Doctor Carstens.
On another issue, none of the people who have been approached to represent Kitimat on the Northern Health Board have chosen to apply for the position as yet.
