Surgical Sponges

This programme started in 2011 as the sponges were no longer available in the local drug stores.  SoluNet surgical sponges are labelled as supplied by the Auxiliary and are delivered to the Surgical Nurses' office monthly. 

The sponge is handed to the patient by a surgical nurse who explains the method of use.  The staff members and patients are most appreciative.  By the end of 2014, 3,100 sponges had been delivered to the Surgical Nurses' office.
