|Description: ||January 1995 saw the Rotunda statistics 250m year of continuous service and
development. The main effort of the hospital was aimed at providing care for our
obstetric, paediatric and gynaelocogical patients but with some time devoted to
both celebrating our history and planning for our future.
The medical. nursing and administration infrastructure of a modern hospital ensure
that it will function well - even in the first year of a new Master's term. Despite
knowing this, the challenges presented by the first year of a new term are
considerable and I would regard myself as being particularly fortunate in starting at
a time when the hospital was running well both from the staffing and physical
aspects. In acknowledging the help given me by all the hospital staff, the time and
advice of Dr. Darling, my immediate predecessor should be singled out.
This year the hospital attended to 6132 pregnant women, 5480 women were
delivered of 5595 babies weighing greater than 500g and 652 women miscarried .
One woman was found dead at 20 weeks of cerebral anorexia, possibly due to a
seizure. 53 babies over 500g died giving an uncorrected perinatal mortality of 9.5.
The individual losses are enumerated in the case synopsis later in this report.|
