When you come to the hospital for the first time, either as an in-patient or as an out-patient, you receive a card with your “unique registration hospital number”. We create your medical record with this identification number, update and preserve it with utmost care and confidentiality. This number and card enables speedy retrieval of your medical records each time you need to see a doctor.
Consultants at outpatient department (OPD) may decide to admit a patient and in this case it is advisable to book the bed and operation theatre (if required) in advance. Bookings are done at the admission reception counter. Some admissions come through the emergency department, which is open for 24 hours, everyday of the week.
The registration counter has a schedule of charges for different types of rooms. The charges vary depending upon the kind of room you select. Patients requiring financial assistance and concession in the hospitalisation charges are requested to contact the director administration, for assistance. For estimation of your hospitalisation costs, kindly consult patient counsellor/front office.
The counsellor will explain you the nature of your disease and the treatment planned. We request you to read carefully and sign the consent forms given to you prior to your admission. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions if you find the information inadequate or vague.
Food is an important part of the services rendered. The menu is personally supervised by our dietitian. We serve only vegetarian menu as per the disease/procedure. You are requested not to leave food in the room, as this attracts pests. The hospital does not permit food from outside. Food is not permitted in the room for the attendant.
