Rs 100 crore super-specialty hospital in MGMGH may see light of day today

TRICHY: The long-pending inauguration of Rs 100 crore-super specialty hospital inside Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital ( MGMGH) is likely to be held on Friday. However, the equipment worth Rs 45 crore is yet to arrive at the hospital. Officials, who confirmed the inauguration message, attributed the undue hurry to the fast-approaching elections and the model code of conduct that would come into effect soon after.

On Thursday evening, the building was illuminated and it seemed that all decks were cleared for the grand opening on Friday. However, the inauguration has not been officially announced. But, according to sources, the hospital administration has received communication from Chennai about the inauguration and it is expected to be held at around 12 noon. The chief minister is likely to inaugurate it through video-conferencing. "The building will be inaugurated on Friday not because we want to complete it before the birthday of the chief minister. We want to complete everything before the announcement of the Lok Sabha election," a source said.

But, the new super-specialty hospital, which is promoted on par with Madras Medical College hospital, will see the inauguration even before installing the medical equipment. The six-storey building has nine super specialty departments, namely orthopaedics, neuro surgery, neurology, nephrology, urology, cardiology, cardio thoracic and plastic surgery. When asked about the delay in installing the equipment, the dean Dr P Karkuzhali said the process is on to receive the medical equipments. The hospital administration had recently sent a revised proposal for Rs 45 crore for equipment alone. Meanwhile, the super specialty building needs around 80 doctors, hundreds of nurses and sanitary workers. However, the government was yet to sanction the procedure to fill up these posts.

Meanwhile, the construction work of the Rs 55 crore building was completed by January 31, 2014, which was well-ahead of its fixed deadline. A senior PWD engineer said the work was completed before the deadline because of free flow of funds for the project. Interestingly, this likely inauguration will coincide with MGMGH's mega medical camp, which is one of the 660 medical camps that have been organised to denote the chief minister's birthday that falls on February 24. The camp will be held from 8 am to 4 pm at Syed Murdoza government higher secondary school.

Training on pre-hospital trauma care

TRICHY: A training programme on 'pre-hospital trauma care' was conducted for the police personnel in Trichy by the Indian Medical Association (IMA), Trichy chapter, on Friday evening. The objective of the training was to educate cops about first-aid methods while helping accident victims to reach hospital within the golden hour.

Shailesh Kumar Yadav, commissioner of police (CoP), after inaugurating the training, slammed the rash drivers, who posed a threat to people on road, especially pedestrians. "Road traffic accidents are a major issue. Lives of road-users are always uncertain as many do not adhere to traffic rules. Vehicles are drove in uncivilised manner and many a times, pedestrians are at the receiving end," he said

"At this juncture, as policemen, it is our duty as well as a necessity to be well-trained in providing first-aid to accident victims before rushing to hospital. So, the training given by IMA will be highly useful. A skilled policeman can be more confident in acting during emergency like road accidents," the commissioner said.

Dr S P Thiruppathy, one of the panelists, listed out certain points like using cell phone while driving, hitch-hiking, not wearing helmet or seatbelt as the reasons behind fatal accidents on road.

"Apart from loss of lives, many victims are left permanently disabled. The agony of such injured people is beyond explainable. Despite spreading awareness among road users, ample errors are made by them," he said.

The police commissioner also released a book titled 'Road Safety Management' written by him. The book contains information about the road traffic rules and regulations, first-aid techniques, duty of the driver involved in the accident, and so on.

Super specialty block awaits inauguration

TRICHY: The much-awaited inauguration of the trauma and super specialty care block on the premises of Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) is expected soon.

The public works department (PWD) had commenced the construction of the block at on outlay of Rs 55 crore on September 14, 2012. "The PWD has assured that it will handover the building with furniture shortly. Moreover, process is on to get the medical equipment worth Rs 45 crore for the new building," Dr P Karkuzhali, dean of MGMGH, who took charge recently, said, adding they were planning to construct medicine and surgical blocks too.

Though, the dean wasn't sure about the exact date of inauguration, sources said the new block would be inaugurated before the model code of conduct comes into effect for the parliamentary elections.

The new block with 440 beds is expected to fulfill the growing needs for specialty treatment. All the floors of the Rs 100-crore building have been divided into various departments. The orthopaedics and radiodiagnosis ward is on the ground floor of the seven-storey block. While the first floor consists of cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery departments, the second will have neurology and neuro-surgery departments. The nephrology and urology departments will function from the third floor and paediatric surgery and plastic surgery will be on the fourth floor. The medical gastroenterology and surgical gastroenterology departments will operate on the fifth. The sixth floor is for medical oncology and surgical oncology departments. The new block will have eight operation theatres.

On the newly-started maternity care centre, Dr MA Aleem, the vice-principal of the college, said it plays a vital role in maternity and child care. "After its inauguration on December 30, 450 deliveries took place. Likewise, the new super specialty will also play a major role," he said.

The dean also said the hospital is awaiting the nod of Medical Council of India (MCI) to start a PG course in pathology. "We have filed an application seeking MCI's permission for starting a PG course on MD (pathology) in KAP Viswanatham Government Medical Colleg. In the last academic year, a PG course in MD (bio-chemistry) was commenced in our college. "Once we get the approval, one more course will be included," the dean said.

In 2013, 3,65,258 new outpatients besides the old outpatients of 5,07,042 were treated in MGMGH.
