At SAIH, emergency handling has been exclusively programmed to avoid wastage of time. Separate entrance for emergency patients, outpatients and inpatients avoids crowd and resultant confusion. The “24 hours SAIH Emergency Services” includes fully equipped Resuscitation Room with ventilators, central venous catheters, defibrillators, Department equipped to handle all emergencies, special ICU with four world class operation theatres with the most modern equipment.
The moment an accident or trauma patient arrives, he/she is rushed to the Resuscitation Room. Once the patient is stabilized, he/she is taken to the adjacent wash room for removal of all traces of dirt and infection and subsequently brought back to the Resuscitation Room for examination, diagnosis and treatment. Depending on the degree of injury sustained, action is taken without any loss of time. A patient with minor injuries is moved to the suture room; once that requires careful monitoring is moved to the ICU and those in need of critical surgeries are shifted to the fully equipped Emergency Operation Theatre for immediate treatment.
