New block in GH to make labour smoother for pregnant women

Image

For women in labour rushing to the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital here, reaching the maternity ward removed far from the entrance is by itself is a tedious task .

Things are set to change with the completion of the newly built maternity and advanced neonatal centre, which was inspected by a team from World Bank on Monday.

A team from the monitoring committee of the bank visited the hospital to assess the centre, located right in front of the hospital, with a separate entrance. The centre has been constructed with support from the bank at an estimated cost of Rs. 6.2 crore. The committee would submit its assessment report to the World Bank, said A. Karthikeyan, dean, K.A.P.Viswanatham Government Medical College.

The centre would house a maternity ward and advanced neonatal ICU for newborns requiring critical care. It is expected to have a bed strength of 130. The new centre is yet to be occupied.

The team also assessed the non-communicable diseases project of the hospital. The medical college hospital screens all patients for diabetes and hypertension and advises appropriate treatment. Female patients are additionally screened for breast and cervical cancer.

While procedures like mastectomy are performed in the hospital, cancers in advanced stages, are referred to government hospitals that have the necessary facilities, said Dr. Karthikeyan.

GH taking the digital route

Image

In a move to increase the efficiency of outpatient treatment, the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital is setting up a computerised outpatient ticket issue system.

Outpatients at the medical college hospital are presently being issued tickets manually.

The medical college hospital, being a referral hospital in central Tamil Nadu, often sees a rush during outpatient hours, and making regulation challenging. Each department has being asked to computerise issue of tokens and outpatient history, beginning with the eye care, paediatric, and gynaecological departments, A. Karthikeyan, Dean, told The Hindu .

Newborn digital update

An LED display board has been installed at the visitor’s entrance to the maternity ward.

The board flashes details of newborns in the ward, including sex of the baby, and names of the parents along with address.

The hospital sees an average of 30 deliveries a day, said a hospital source.

The digital updates would help in sorting out malpractices such as infant kidnapping and queries raised over the sex of the baby. Only one attendant is allowed to see the mother and newborn, soon after the birth. The maternity ward categorised as sensitive area, allows family members only during visiting hours in morning, afternoon, and evening, as a security measure. A month ago, the GH installed surveillance cameras, with six CCTV cameras in the maternity block.

LED display at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial General Hospital to provide info on mothers, babies

TRICHY: A 32-inch LED TV has been installed outside the maternity ward of the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial General Hospital (MGMGH), on Friday, which will provide information related to pregnant mothers and their newborn babies. A brainchild of the hospital dean, Dr A Karthikeyan, the initiative has been hailed by many.

The labour ward gets around 30 cases a day on an average and is always a scene of chaos about the condition of the women in labour. "It has been installed to keep the anxious family members and strangers at bay," clarified Dr Karthikeyan. The LED display will scroll electronic data about the name and place of the patients and the sex of the newborns round-the-clock.

The hospital on April 19 made arrangements to fix 16 cameras at strategic places a day after a one-day-old female infant went missing. It was conceived and executed in a single day after the hospital received a lot of flak from higher ups for negligence. Police said that the missing babies would be easily traced, had the hospital installed CCTVs. Insiders revealed to TOI that the idea of monitoring the inside of the labour ward was inordinately postponed, as it would have revealed the umbilical cord of corruption between the hospital workers and the patients.

"It is a double-edged sword of monitoring corruption and the missing babies," said Karthikeyan, who decided to go for the technology upgrade at a cost of Rs 5 lakh. A large number of rural women from the region throng the hospital to deliver their babies. The hospital has six delivery tables and around five to 10 cases would end up on the c-section tables. "If we receive more cases, they will all be admitted in the labour ward and they will be treated depending upon the contingency," added Karthikeyan.

Centre to detect hearing loss in newborns coming up in Tiruchi

A centre to diagnose hearing loss as early as the first day of birth has been established at the district differently abled welfare office, located on the district court premises. The early diagnostic centre, to be opened to public shortly, will focus on identifying possible hearing disability present at or acquired after birth.

If congenital hearing defects are neglected, they can lead to a host of issues such as impaired hearing, speech, language acquisition, developmental growth, and difficulties in academic progress, say various studies, including those by the World Health Organization. The centre is designed to assess the range of hearing disability in children, particularly those referred to by government hospitals in the district, R. Shyamala, differently abled welfare officer, told The Hindu .

At present, there are few facilities available in the government sector to test newborns for hearing disability. The early diagnostic centre is equipped with a BERA (brainstem evoked response audiometry) equipment estimated at Rs. 8 lakh, which measures responses in brain waves that are stimulated by sounds.

This tool is efficient in detecting hearing defect in newborns and infants who cannot be assessed by conventional audiometry tests that require an active response from the candidate taking the test, according to Sellam, audiologist at the centre.

The otoacoustic emissions (OAE) test, which monitors the vibration of hair cells in the ears, is among the facilities.

The centre houses a soundproof room for audiometric testing.

There is a provision to programme behind-the-ear hearing aids, based on hearing loss of the individual. These devices can be set according to hearing loss of individual.

Subsequent to diagnosis, speech therapy will be provided in the centre and parents will be counselled on early intervention to minimise disability. At present, a single audiologist has been appointed.

The centre has been set up in the space hitherto occupied by an audio library for visually challenged.

Bangalore-headquartered HealthCare Global Enterprises (HCG) Ltd, a specialist in cancer care, is planning to start three cancer centres in African cities and 20 across India.
HCG Hospitals, which has already opened a cancer centre in Uganda, is setting up three more centres in Africa, including Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, Nairobi in Kenya and Lagos in Nigeria.

HCG group chairman Dr B S Ajaikumar, who was here to lay the foundation stone of the group's upcoming cancer centre in the city, informed this to TOI on Monday.
"While the centre at Uganda has already started, the centres at Nairobi and Dar es Salaam will start in the next 18 to 24 months," he said, adding that the group will invest Rs 500 crore mainly through equity and debt for starting new centres.
Temasek, an investment company owned by the Government of Singapore, has recently invested in HCG to aid the company's expansion plans into Africa and also fund its next phase of expansion across India.
The company has previously received financing from Premji Invest, the investment fund owned by Wipro's billionaire chairman, Azim Premji.
HCG, which has already invested over Rs 700 crore, presently has a network of 27 centres across the country and plans to set up 20 other centres.
"Through our hub and spoke model we will be focusing mainly on tier II and tier III cities to make cancer care accessible to patients throughout the country," said Ajaikumar, adding that apart from Vadodara, the group is setting up centres at Kanpur, Varanasi and Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, Vizag in Andhra Pradesh, Trichy in Tamil Nadu and Gulbarga in Karnataka among others.
