Emergency Services

 
The Emergency Ward (Previously Ward No 20, now # 021 – emergency room) has 10 beds and is located on the ground floor next to casualty. This is staffed by lecturers and resident doctors round the clock. Patients requiring urgent attention are first seen by the casualty officer and then referred to the emergency ward. Here, they are evaluated by the doctor on duty and a decision is made regarding admission to the various wards like general ward, Medical ICU, ICCU etc. Specialist opinion may also be obtained prior to admission. Emergency cases – the very seriously ill, are initially admitted to this ward and stabilized before being shifted to other areas of the hospital.
