Emergency Department is the first point of contact for any critically ill patient, needing immediate medical attention. Modern Emergency Departments are managed by qualified Emergency Physicians and nurses, trained specifically for providing emergent care to save a life or limb. To prioritize treatment for most sick patients, EDs use a tool called Triage which means sorting out.

Those patients needing immediate life-threatening measures are treated first. Those with minor ailments may have to wait. After resuscitation and initial stabilization patients are either admitted to in-patient department.

Our emergency service is available 24/7, with well equipped monitors, point-of-care diagnostics, essential drugs, and other equipment needed for high-quality medical care to the patient.

Accreditation with National bodies such as NABH and NABL, ensures that the quality of care is maintained by the ED. Emergency Physicians are well supported by other clinical specialists for optimum care of the patient.

Many of the illnesses like stroke and heart attack need time-critical interventions. EDs ensure that an early diagnosis and interventions are performed in this critical time. EDs cater to medical emergencies like poisonings, complications of diabetes, respiratory failure, kidney failure, foreign body obstructions, abnormalities of cardiac rhythm, etc. Surgical emergencies such as road traffic accidents, assaults, burns, acute pain in abdomen, blockage of blood supply to limbs, bleeding, or perforation of intestines, etc. A well-designed and staffed Emergency Department is capable of providing good quality emergency care to not only adults but special population groups such as children, pregnant females, or old age patients

Another important role of Emergency Services is Pre-hospital care which is provided through Advanced Life Support Ambulances by Emergency Medical Technicians under the guidance of Emergency Physicians.
