Working Group Hospital Support (HS)

About us

To keep a hospital up and running you need a lot of equipment. From dental chairs to blood pressure monitors and generators, everything has to be functional and ready for use so that doctors can do their jobs. We are supporting the technical departments in hospitals with maintenance and repair concepts as well as optimising work processes. Besides that, we provide training on electrical safety. At the moment, we focus on the support of dental departments and the establishment of dental laboratories and maternity wards. Recently, we have also started offering hospitals the opportunity to inventory their equipment with our TwB Swift app.

We are about 20 active members distributed across the local groups Erlangen, Ansbach and Ludwigshafen. So far, 15 projects have been carried out in Ghana, Nicaragua, Rwanda and Nepal. In our next project in 2020, we will train Ghanaian technicians in the maintenance and troubleshooting of emergency room training simulators. At the same time the equipment of the hospital will be inventoried with our app.

Until now, we have implemented the following projects in our group:

Ghana Nepal Ruanda Nicaragua Some others projects are in planning phase right now.
