Emergency Medical Services
STATE OF THE ART EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES AT KEM HOSPITAL
On October 5, 2000, a new state-of-the-art Emergency Medical Services area was commissioned in the hospital.
Housed on the ground floor of the main hospital building, it is located where the old casualty, medical and surgical OPDs, minor surgery and Wards 20 and 20A were located. This approximately 15,000 square ft area, houses all emergency facilities. There are separate medical (adult and pediatric) and surgical (surgery and orthopedics) areas to cater to all emergencies.
Each area is provided with all necessary monitoring and life support systems. The five fully equipped operating rooms are capable of handling all types of emergency surgeries including urologic, and vascular or thoracic surgery.
Fully functional biochemistry, pathology and microbiology laboratory facilities are housed within this area itself. Plain radiography and ultrasonography are also available within this area. A CT scan specifically for emergencies will be commissioned shortly.
