Emergency Medicine

Services

Location : The Emergency Department has a pivotal portal through which, health care-seeking individuals  gain access into a medical institution. It is only appropriate that the Emergency Department stands as the face of the institution,thus providing visibility and rapid access.

PATIENT CARE

Triage  :  Triage is the concept,by which patients are sorted according to the severity of their illness, rather then their time of arrival.  Pushpagiri practices a 3-tier triage system which ensures that the right patient procures the right treatment at the right time.  Triage is nurse-led and has administered excellent reliability and accuracy, since it is based on our own need-based guidelines and protocols.

Registration  : While the patient is being triaged, registration of the patient is carried out in the opposite counter and is by the Public Relations Officer such that new-comers to Pushpagiri are helped in every way possible.  Further, the significant proportion of our lower socio-economic strata are facilitated to enroll into State as well as institution-based welfare schemes.

PRIORITY BAY 1

Patients with life threatening emergencies are admitted in the Priority 1 area.  This facility has trained personnel and sophisticated equipment for advanced resuscitation and stabilization of both trauma and medical cases with emergency problems.

PRIORITY BAY 2

This area caters to all patients with potentially life-threatening emergencies.  All beds are monitored along with  central oxygen supply, suction and ventilator connection facilities.

PRIORITY BAY 3

This facility is for patients with medical urgency who require evaluation, investigation and observation.  It also includes those who can be observed following interventional radiological procedures.

Surge Capacity Area

This facility is kept ready for mass casualty incidents, which results in an unexpected inflow of patients following major road accidents, mass gathering casualties, food poisoning etc.  The allocation of this space ensures that the routine work load of the department remains unhampered.

Paediatric Emergencies

The Paediatric Emergency Department is housed in the Paediatric Block and provides 24 x 7 service for all children with emergency needs.

OB-GY Emergencies

This four bedded facility is stationed in the Maternity Block, thus being available for all those who arrive in that area with gynaecological and obstetrics emergencies.

STAT Lab

Emergency Biochemical laboratory investigations are carried out in the STAT Lab, within the premises of the department, thus significantly reducing turn-around time and expediting clinical decisions.
