GMH waits for kits to arrive

Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital may have just recently received a much-needed infusion of cash, but they're still running short of some supplies. GMH spokesperson Connor Murphy says the hospital is out of two specific types of medical testing kits.

"BUN test is to detect kidney function but we have other tests that can still detect kidney function. We have those and d-dimer is for thrombosis and again, there are other methods to detect thrombosis that we're using right now-just for this limited period until we get the supplies in," said Murphy.

Murphy says GMH is not on hold with the vendor. Rather the order is delayed due to the supplier. In the meantime, the order will arrive on Friday.
