Emergency / Critical Medicine
The success rate of the Emergency- Critical Care Department of a hospital is often the acid test of its overall performance, because the outcome at this most critical department is the ultimate proof of the center’s advanced medical technology, diagnostic/clinical care expertise/experience, presence of mind, speed and the ability to take quick on the spot decisions on the next course of action of its Doctors. The department’s success is also a perfect showcasing of teamwork starting from the quick response and action of the Ambulance team who shift the patient from the spot to the hospital, the ward boys who wheel the patient to the emergency dept, the nurses, paramedical staff and team of doctors who work in perfect coordination, speed and team spirit under great stress.
