RAWALPINDI: A innovative shooter system has been developed for disposing off operation theatre waste at Benazir Bhutto Hospital.

Additional Medical Superintendent Dr. Masood Safdar said talking to reporter here Wednesday.

He said the disposal of OT waste was a major issue for the management.

With the setting up of shooter system it has become convenient for disposing off contaminated substance externally without any contact with inner part of the hospital which has reduced the risk of germs spreading within the hospital premises.

He said there is proper sterilization system under which tables, walls and instruments of OTs are examined to control germs.

He informed that Turkish team during the recent visit appreciated the upgradation of OTs particularly the Shooter system, cleanliness and maintenance that is up to the mark in the hospital.

They also lauded the arrangements and OPD services where all patients are equally segregated to the concerned department and are followed up by the same doctor which provides convenience to the patients.
