The Maternity wing of the Vega Baja Hospital has completed the refurbishment of all its facilities to improve the comfort of future mothers in providing them with an improved and quality service.
The work originally began in the summer and can now “meet the needs that expectant mothers have long been demanding,” the press release says.
The improvements have included the introduction of new cabinets and doors, replacement of much of the furniture, the improvement of the lighting and air conditioning systems.
New baths have been installed that are adapted to meet the needs of pregnant women with additional handrails which will ensure that mothers will be better protected from the possible risk of falls. “In addition the Maternity ward has been completed redecorated which makes it a much warmer space,” the statement said.
The improvement and modernisation of all the rooms is part of the Health Infrastructure Improvement Plan 2016-2019.
Women now also have delivery beds, with electric height and backrest adjustment, which provides support for mother, and functionality for nursing staff throughout all stages of the birthing process, which were acquired at the beginning of the works, and that also allow their independence particularly with the care of the baby.
