ComBank donates Autoclaves to Point Pedro Base Hospital

The Commercial Bank of Ceylon recently donated two Autoclaves, machines that use water, pressure and heat to create superheated steam to kill microorganisms and spores, to the Point Pedro Base Hospital, in response to a request. These units will be used for infection control at the hospital’s operating theatre. A ‘Type A’ Base Hospital, the Pedro Hospital serves about 150,000 people in the Vadamarachchi region of Jaffna.

Pictured here is the presentation of the Autoclaves by Commercial Bank’s Regional Manager Northern, Mr Ramachandran Sivagnanam (second right) and the Manager of the Point Pedro Branch of the Commercial Bank Mr Thevaraajah Aravinthan to a representative of the hospital.
