EMERGENCY SERVICES

The Emergency Department at KAHS provides care to patients with urgent medical conditions ranging from complex problems to simple but pressing ones. Care is provided 24 hours a day, serving more than 20,000 patients a year. The manpower of over 16 personnel from HOD to Helpers makes rational for its daily patient inflow of around 50 patients per day.

With the facility of Emergency Operation Theatre, Emergency X-ray, Emergency CT Scan and USG 24 × 7, the promptness one may need in the emergency can be achieved easily. Emergency Laboratory services are prompt giving results within 2 hours. ECG is done bedside and ABG analysis within minutes. On-call residents from various departments stay at emergency stay at ER to provide expert care and make possible admissions at Wards promptly.

There is separate Emergency in Observation room for patients who are stable but need observation for some time before discharge. Every case in the Emergency Room is assessed by experienced and qualified doctors in direct supervision of the Emergency Residents and Faculty. Thus one can be assured of the services provided by the Emergency at KAHS and regard it as one of the best example of critical care in grounds of limited resources.
