KAMPALA - The public accounts committee of Parliament has learnt that Kabale Regional Referral Hospital supplied an incomplete set of nurse's uniforms.
The administrators of the hospital were today interfacing with the committee to respond to the auditor general's queries for 2018/2019 after the committee questioned them on the supply of uniforms and medicine.
The senior pharmacist at the hospital, Rodney Tabaruka, informed the committee that in December last year they received a consignment of uniforms from national medical stores which came without shoes and belts.

Tabaruka further informed the committee, chaired by Amudat woman MP Rosemary Nauwat, that the consignment had 326 uniforms and had only 5 belts with no shoes.
When asked why the hospital did not query the incomplete consignment, Tabaruka informed the committee that they had treated this as a donation since the money did not come from the hospital budget.
