Doctors resume duties

The National,Friday July 1st, 2016

OPERATIONS have returned to normal at the Angau Memorial Hospital.
The hospital’s chief executive officer, Christopher Kenyhercz, said after a “grieving period” business was usual from Tuesday.
Kenyhercz said staff did not scale down  services as intended while paying respect to longtime paediatrician Dr Alphonse Rongap, who was killed by criminals last Saturday.
“There was no scaling down of operations but our staff were in a grieving period,” Kenyhercz said.
Kenyhercz said staff on Monday spent time at the mourning house, trying to come to terms with the news of his shocking death.
“Our inpatient, outpatient and other vital services were maintained,” he said.
Kenyhercz said the hospital wanted to continue grieving because Rongap served the hospital for many years but the doctor’s family did not want it to take place at the hospital.
“The family wanted proper processes to be followed so that the grieving could take place at his residence,” he said.
