can make a
Emergency Room Project
Gandhi Medical College and Gandhi Hospital are beautiful medical facilities in Hyderabad, India, and a top medical facility and teaching Hospital in the newly formed Telangana State.
The Emergency Room(ER) at the Gandhi Hospital is a separate building connected to the main Hospital and has three floors and a basement. The basement hosts CT, MRI, and other diagnostic X-ray equipment. Medical ICU, Orthopedic, and Trauma Ward are on the first and ground floors. Patients examination happens at a medical observation place before being sent to Medical ICU or Orthopedic and Trauma Ward. The Medical ICU has 24 beds with 19 monitors and 8 ventilators.
However, the emergency center has limited few infusion pumps. The ideal ICU should have at least 1or 2 infusion pumps for each bed, 24 monitors, and an adequate number of ventilators. Each infusion pump costs about Rs. 20,000. Each Space Lab monitor costs about 1 lakh of rupees. The project to uplift ER and its services is led by Mr. Gunaranjan, Chairman, YouSee Volunteer Group(http://www.yousee.in).
Yousee organized an effort to recruit 24 nurses to work for 24 critical care beds in the Emergency room. Supported by Ekam Foundation (http://www.ekamoneness.org), the program recruited fifteen nurses. The ER has one dedicated nurse for every 4 beds raising care levels at the ICU and winning praise from doctors at the Department of Medicine. Few other items like Nebulizers, Airbed for ventilated patients, and suction apparatus still need to be procured. Nurses have regular technical sessions on the floor and a classroom session every Saturday to facilitate the continued learning process for the nursing team.
