emergency1Visitors to Pushpagiri Medical College Hospital of the past would remember the old “Casualty”, a cramped and archaic service facility,which existed since the inception of  the Hospital.  Transformation into a well-planned, well-constructed department, with trained personnel and state-of-the-art equipment occurred on October 1, 2013.  Since then, the obsolete “Casualty” has metamorphosed into an Emergency Medicine Department, which practices contemporary evidence-based emergency medicine, both in training and patient care.

Location:The Emergency Department has a pivotal portal through which, health care-seeking individuals  gain access into a medical institution. It is only appropriate that the Emergency Department stands as the face of the institution,thus providing visibility and rapid access.

patient careTriage  :  Triage is the concept,by which patients are sorted according to the severity of their illness, rather then their time of arrival.  Pushpagiri practices a 3-tier triage system which ensures that the right patient procures the right treatment at the right time.  Triage is nurse-led and has administered excellent reliability and accuracy, since it is based on our own need-based guidelines and protocols.

Registration  : While the patient is being triaged, registration of the patient is carried out in the opposite counter and is by the Public Relations Officer such that new-comers to Pushpagiri are helped in every way possible.  Further, the significant proportion of our lower socio-economic strata are facilitated to enroll into State as well as institution-based welfare schemes.
