Ammathottil @ Ernakulam General Hospital

The Ernakulam General Hospital which recently bagged the prestigious National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) accreditation, will soon turn friendly to abandoned newborns also. The Social Welfare Department is constructing an ‘Ammathottil’, a cradle in which parents (in most cases mothers) abandoning their newborns can leave them. It is being constructed at a cost of Rs 2.43 lakh.

The Ammathottil will come up near the eye ward in the general hospital. The work commenced a few days ago. “There will be a ‘thottil’ where the baby can be left. Once the baby is laid in the cradle, a bell will alert the officials of the hospital who can take it immediately,” said Dr Junaid Rehman, Superintendent, Ernakulam General Hospital.

Doctors will examine the baby for 24 hours. If there is no health problem, it will be handed over to the Social Welfare Department.
The department in turn will hand over the baby to one of the charitable organisations where it will be brought up.

Those who want to adopt children usually approach such organisations.The Ammathottil was first set up in Thiruvananthapuram. ‘A few cases of babies being abandoned have been reported in Kochi. Once the Ammathottil is opened, many can make use of it,” Junaid Rehman said. The construction of Ammathottil is expected to be completed within a month.

An article about Kochi Healthcare in Khaleej Times

Day before yesterday, I felt so proud after reading an article in Khaleej Times (a leading UAE based Newspaper). In its 4th page, a large column article came that talks about potential growth of Kerala, particularly Kochi as leading medical hub of Asia

Quote:

The state has been witnessing flight of doctors, nurses and paramedics to foreign countries for the past few decades. The trend is now set for a reversal with the state emerging as an international healthcare destination.

The state’s commercial capital of Cochin has already started wooing non-resident Indian doctors with a host of world-class healthcare projects nearing completion. The city-based BCG Group, which is creating 1.6 million sq. ft of space for social infrastructure in the next four years, is gearing up for a series of road shows abroad in this connection.

It will start off by showcasing a health mall they will be opening in the city in August this year to specialist doctors and other healthcare service providers in the Middle East next month. The mall, the first of its kind in India, brings under one roof all health services and products.

The 110,000-square feet mall will have 40 consultation rooms for doctors, over 30 clinics as well as retail stores dealing with pharmacy, optical ware, cosmetics, ayurvedic drugs, skin care products, organic and health foods and medical equipment.

Christened BCG Healthsquare, the mall will have common facilities such as patient-management desk, secretarial assistance, call monitoring, billing and other services that doctors need to set up independent practice.

Rekha C. Babu, CEO of the company, said the mall will be offering multiple rental and lease options to doctors to set up practice either for short duration or permanently. Many doctors from abroad have shown keen interest in the mall, which is now found only in countries like the US, Singapore, Malaysia and Europe.

The BCG Healthsquare will also allow other hospitals to set up their kiosks in the mall in order to make available the hospital services to the patients. The company has plans to set up similar malls in Trivandrum, Calicut and three other centres in the state. The group has also plans to develop a health village in the city to cater to those who need permanent health care besides a super specialty hospital as part of their foray into the health social infrastructure sector.

The other projects that are designed to bring NRI doctors to the city are a MedCity being developed by the Dubai-based Dr Moopen’s Group and a modern health complex by the Calicut-based Baby Memorial Hospital Group. The MedCity coming up in a 30-acre site on the Airport-Seaport road at an investment of Rs.15 billion will have a 500-bed anchor hospital as the fulcrum and around it some 10 smaller hospitals of 100 to 200 beds for specialties and many allied services.

The promoters plan to bring comprehensive international quality healthcare to the city by attracting major national and international healthcare operators to the MedCity. This may elevate Cochin to a higher pedestal in delivery of advanced hi-tech treatment, says Group chairman Dr Azad Mooppan.

The integrated health complex to be built by the Baby Memorial Hospital as per the US Joint Commission International (JCI) standards will have an area of 700,000 sq ft with facilities to treat 700 inpatients and speciality blocks with 500 beds along with a host of educational institutions, research centres and residential complexes.

Apart from these, the Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), Trivandrum and the Malabar Institute of Medical Sciences (MIMS), Calicut, have also planned to set up their centres on the outskirts of the city. KIMS is planning a Rs.20 million trauma care unit on NH 49. Along with this, Cochin may also witness an expansion of the medical education with SNDP Medical College, Vasan Dental Care, Medical Trust Medical College, Polakulath Mediciti Hospital and Kakkanad Medical Centre Pvt Ltd planning to establish medical colleges in the city

Unique Surgery done at Kochi

In an attempt to reduce the complications of open surgery, a team of surgeons and doctors of Lakeshore Hospital Kochi, has successfully performed a kidney transplantation laparoscopically, for the first time in the state. This is the second surgery performed in the country and the third in the entire world. While the traditional method of kidney transplantation for the past twenty-five years has been through open surgery, the last few years have seen doctors performing keyhole surgery on the donor to remove the kidney, but the transplantation was always an open procedure till now.

In this case, laparoscopic surgery is performed on the recipient as well. The kidney from the donor is kept ready by one team of doctors while an incision of the same size is done on the recipient. The kidney is inserted.
The blood vessels of the transplant kidney are joined to the recipient followed by the rejoining of the transplant ureter to the native urinary bladder.

The surgery was done by a team led by transplant and laparoscopic surgeon Dr George P Abraham. The nephrology team was headed by Dr Abi Abraham and the anaesthesia team by Dr Mohan Mathew. The surgical team included Dr Krishna Mohan Ramaswami, Dr Krishnanu Das and Dr Jisha Johnson Abraham.

Addressing the media at Lakeshore Hospital here on Thursday, Dr George said that laparoscopy is an alternative to open surgery in many conditions in gastro-intestinal, gynaecologic and urological specialities.

It offers unparalleled comfort to the patients, allowing them to attain pain-free recovery from the surgery and is cosmetically appealing. It also enables the surgeon to perform a superior job by offering a magnified view of the operating field.

“Performing keyhole kidney transplantation remained a dream till recently, owing to the technical difficulty in connecting the arteries and veins of the donor kidney to the deeply placed iliac vessels of the recipient by microfine stitches,” he said. “The patient, Bina Kumari, 35, of Kannur has made a remarkable recovery and the transplanted kidney started functioning just like in open surgery,” Dr George said. The surgery costs around Rs 3.2 lakh.

Cochin Pet Hospital

Its not humans along who get world class treatments at Kochi, but also animals who are loved as pets.... Yes, Kochi is the home of India's first and only PET HOSPITAL.





The below is review of Cochin Pet Hospital from Cochin MetroMela.

The Cochin Pet Hospital is housed in a bright, blue building at Vidhyanagar Crossroads, Panampilly Nagar, Cochin. It is a multi-specialty pet hospital, boasting of many firsts in the veterinary segment to its credit. Started by a vet duo Dr. Giggin T and Dr. K Sooraj, it offers round the clock service and even sells pet care products.

What you get - Spread over 25,000 square feet, the hospital offers 24-hour medical attention to pets with facilities like emergency care, neonatal ICU and electronic ventilator. A highly advanced operation theatre, diagnostic lab with ultrasound scanning, ECG and digital X-ray unit, auto haematology analyzer, multi-para patient analyzer and video microscope are other features. They also claim to have India's first ventilator controlled anaesthesia machine. Separate departments are there for dentistry and ophthalmology too.

An exclusive in-house pharmacy, on-call ambulance service, house visits and door-step delivery of feed apart from breeding service, renders the hospital an extraordinary advantage. All these services can be availed by dialling in to the hospital’s toll free number 18001025759.

Another unique feature of the hospital is its in-house pet grooming parlor. Apart from grooming, tips are provided to owners on pet upbringing, nutrition, breeding and buying. The hospital also has a pool where pets can have medicated and non-medicated baths. At the ‘Pet Shop’ section, a wide array of pet products and accessories like dog and cat collars, leashes, shampoos, food, furniture, toys (both Indian and imported) are available.

We are also told that all staff members are recruited by assuring they are animal lovers. The pet hospital also takes care of abandoned stray pets and handicapped pets. They also promote pet adoption. In association with CARE a Kochi-based NGO, they even run free anti-rabies vaccination camps and promote the concept of sterilizing the pets.

An infertility clinic, a maternity division and a home stay for pets are the other additional services here.

It is life that flows from a 450 ml bag of donated blood to the vein of a person in need.

There is no alternative. In emergencies what saves your life, apart from the expertise of the medical team and the latest treatment modalities, is the blood of a stranger, a person who was motivated enough to come forward for this noble gesture.

Blood donation has come of age in the district. There is no shortage of blood in emergencies, even for rare groups like O Negative. Even though a section of the public still believe that donating blood would affect their health, the awareness about the need for blood donation and its benefits has increased the number of voluntary donors in blood banks.

The blood bank of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) sees around 40 to 50 persons donating their blood in a single day. The bank, equipped with the latest machinery for testing, separation of components and storage of blood, is the main source of blood for hospitals in and around the district.

“Now, most hospitals have their own blood banks, so the demand has come down. A couple of years ago, we used to supply more than 5,000 units of blood every month, now it has come down 2,500-3,000.

With more awareness and an increase in the number of blood donation camps conducted by various organizations, we do not feel a shortage of blood,” says Dr K. Narayanan Kutty, secretary of the blood bank.

Running a blood bank is an expensive affair, and many hospitals in the district, like Welcare, KIMS, Ernakulam General Hospital and Ernakulam Medical Centre function as the storage centres of the IMA Blood Bank.

The demand for components of blood, like plasma, platelets and blood cells, goes up when there is an outbreak of diseases like chikungunya.

A 450 ml unit is supplied at Rs 500, and Ernakulam General Hospital gets 20 per cent of the supply free of cost.

Blood banks across the state discourage paid donors and insist on the provision of complete details regarding their health.

“In fact, a unit of blood saves many lives as it is separated into various components. Any healthy person in the age group of 18-60 can donate blood once in three months,” says Dr Sankari Shenoy, pathologist of KIMS Hospital.

To provide the safest blood, IMA Blood Bank-Kochi is planning to introduce Nucleic acid amplification testing whereby the window period of infections can be closed. It is for the first time in Kerala that this advanced technology is used to screen donated blood for infections apart from the basic screening tests.

Only 5% of eligible donors donate blood

*In India, those in the age group of 18-24 years donate most blood. Around 53% of all donations are made by those in this age group, followed by those in the age group of 25-44 years, 29%. Around 19% of donations are made by those aged 45-65.

*WHO said in richer countries, donors tend to be older (over 44). In low- and middle-income countries, they are younger (under 25).

*In low- and middle-income countries, almost half (45%) of all donations come from people under 25 and 18% from the over-44 age group.

Blood literacy

*IMA Blood Bank will launch a blood literacy programme on Monday, which marks World Blood Donation Day. Implemented in association with voluntary organisations, this programme aims to provide health cards to the citizens of the city, giving them basic information like blood group and other health details.

These health cards will come in handy in emergencies or while donating blood. Though Kochi Corporation began the blood literacy programme in 2002, it failed to take off. IMA Blood Bank would implement the project in schools and colleges in the first stage, expanding to all wards in the later phases.

Drive to make Kochi the first blood-literate city

An awareness drive to make Kochi the first blood-literate city in the country, began on Tuesday. The movement, aimed at creating awareness among Kochiites on various aspects of blood donation and to create a database on blood donation, will be completed in a year.

The drive is part of the Health Mission’s initiative to ensure 100 per cent health literacy in Kochi. As many as 17 NGOs, including the Indian Medical Association and the Red Cross, are part of the drive. “We will start the programme with division number 40. With the help of various organisations, the councillors and others will collect the data on the total number of blood donors in the division. The data collection will include details regarding the blood groups of the donors, donor status and so on. In the second stage, we will organise camps for those who do not know their blood group,” Health Mission chairman Dr Sachidananda Kamath said.

After this pilot project, we will study the problems and possibilities before moving on to the other divisions. For division number 40 alone, the budget for the reagents and other basic infrastructure is put at nearly Rs 1.5 lakh. We have already obtained this through donations. But, further on, we will have to look for support from the government or the corporates.” he added.After the blood literacy drive, the Health Mission is planning various other drives, including awareness campaigns on organ donation, communicable and non-communicable diseases, adolescent health and so on. “As the movement picks up we will join hands with all the organisations of a particular division. Through these campaigns, we are looking at creating a network, whereby there will be a mechanism to send health information immediately to every household. This will especially be helpful in the event of an epidemic outbreak.” Dr Sachidananda Kamath said.

Government General Hospital gets facelift

The 48-bedded maternity ward at the Government General Hospital in Ernakulam has received a thorough facelift.

The 150-year-old district hospital ward has got a major makeover worth Rs 27 lakh. The project was sponsored by GAIL.

More tube lights and fans have been added to brighten up the ward. New tiles add to the feel of being at a good hospital. It is a far cry from the leaky roofs and narrow passages of the old ward.

Hospital superintendent Junaid Rahman says, “Earlier, the rooms were very dingy and dark. But with the introduction of a better wiring system, the rooms look brighter.”

He says that wiring and electrification has been completely improved. “We removed the hanging bulbs that gave the room a dark look and replaced it with two tubes per cubicle,” he adds.

“More space has been created at the ward with the introduction of a verandah. There is sufficient space for more beds,” he says.
Also, with the introduction of one fan for two beds in the four-cubicled ward, patients are more comfortable.

“Earlier, the authorities were forced to put beds near the entrance so that it could be used for patients as well as their relatives due to paucity of space. Now, it is no longer required to do so as there is more space inside the ward,” he said.

Another major change is in the flooring. Ceramic tiles have been replaced with vitrified tiles.

A nurse said, “With the introduction of doors at every cubicle, a separate nursing station and examination room have been created.” Next on the renovation list is the orthopaedic ward of the hospital.
