HAP Distributes 649 Bags With Physical Examination Tools for Family Doctors and Nurses

During December 2023, HAP distributed 649 medical bags to family doctors and nurses in selected healthcare centres in Tirana, Durrës, Elbasan, Berat, Korçë, and Shkodër.

The bags contain around 13 physical examination tools such as a stethoscope, blood pressure monitor, pulse oximeter, otoscope, neurologic hammer, respiratory flow meter, digital thermometer, tourniquet fast, BMI wheel metric, pregnancy calendar, pocket light, and scissors, depending on whether the bag was handed to the family doctor or nurse.

The delivery of each bag was accompanied by instructions for each tool to encourage their immediate and effective use.

These tools not only enable better service in health centres but particularly facilitate the implementation of home-based care and the protocols and guidelines for the treatment of non-communicable diseases.
