National hospital represents the realization of the dreams and vision of the director of the hospital. It is the first dedicated hospital to provide internationally acclaimed standards in multispeciality critical care. The hospital has successfully completed more than 10 years giving consistent, quality oriented and patient centric results. Thus National hospital has made a mark not only in Bhopal but also in whole Madhya Pradesh. Following is the brief overview of infrastructure and facilities available at National hospital-
During each hospitalization, process of admission begins with registration and generation of a unique ID encrypted in Bar Code. This has now become a mandatory step. This is essential as most of the investigations cannot be performed without generating unique ID as most equipment are linked directly to HIS. This is also an important step towards minimizing human error. It also enables to retrieve patient’s report at each nursing station.
Bedside monitoring is coupled with 48 hours of Central monitoring. This helps to keep the record of previous 48 hours for analysis. Every world class bedside monitor from Philips and central monitor is now provided with monitoring with ST mapping and Trend monitoring. It ha s a distinct advantage over conventional monitoring. This tells the treating team about the dynamic condition of your heart. A timely decision in such cases may be life saving. Central Trend Display Monitor is the only one in the entire country. It visually depicts the chosen important parameters as improving, stable or worsening within a specified time. This not only helps to assess the response to treatment, but also alerts doctors to take appropriate decision timely. Advanced monitoring modalities and techniques like sequential non-invasive hemodynamic assessment, BIS (Bi-Spectral index), continuous EEG monitoring, Neuromuscular transmission (NMT), PiCCO and many others are used to provide best results with optimum medications. Each cubicle is sterilized after discharge of infected patient. This prevents the new patient contacting the infection of the previous patient. Each of the very sick patient is provided with 1:1 patient : nurse/cubicle ratio in ALL shifts. It is rated as the best by visiting doctors from reputed hospitals from metropolitan cities. This is not only true for critical care for medicine or its super specialties, but also for high risk post operative patients, poly-trauma patients etc.
World class non-invasive multi-parameter monitoring and EWS (Early warning score) are used for early detection of deteriorating vital signs and prompt treatment.
All PW are now upgraded to Deluxe PW. Besides maintaining the privacy and comfort of patient and attendants, luxuries like A/C, LED TV, attendants couch, which used to define DPW in past, which were not only equipped with central Oxygen & suction, but now have the facility of Non- Invasive Multi Parameter Monitoring with world class Philips monitors. More so, these monitors are WIRELESSLY attached to central monitor at nursing station. This also means that your patient is also monitored when you or your patient is sleeping in night. Thus, privacy and comfort is now combined with patient safety!
These ultramodern cozy Private Wards now have safety features like ICU, facility for bedside dialysis, attend couch, TV and bedside with central monitoring. Another important feature is optional Video monitoring of your patient. This concept is unique and new, these wards are now in much demand than DPW.
Both sharing and single cubicles are available with optional monitoring for “Not so Affording” patients who still need best care.
Facility of bedside monitoring is extended to this ward too optionally. So we will not let economic constraints come in way of treatment of our patients. Because poor man’s life is precious for his family too!
Switching from open surgeries to endoscopic & endo-urological services has transformed the need for long stay into short stay lasting few hours (< 8 hours). To cater this need, hospital now provides “Day Care” ward facilities for all 3 categories i.e., General Ward, Semi private & Deluxe PW, of patients. Needless to say, appropriate to intervention, this has become economical to all categories of patients.
Advanced air beds and DVT pumps are frequently used to prevent debilitating complications like bed sores and life threatening complications like DVT and pulmonary embolism, wherever and when ever they are needed.
Nursing stations of all wards are installed with HIS (Hospital Information System) and PACS (Patient Archiving and Communication System). Now the doctors can view the reports of your patients before they reach wards! For advanced viewing, PACS with advanced software have many features, which are beyond the capability of any digital X-Ray. Some of these features are unique, like Bone Suppression for better visualization of lungs, Pneumothorax visualization, Tube and line software, Image inversion and Hi-definition, some of which are installed for the first time in country. These features, by reducing the need of taking multiple X-Rays, not only eliminates the hazards of exposure to radiation to the patients in many instances, but also reduces the cost.
Many tests have been started in hospital pathology to make them available to patients for 24x7. Some older packages are replaced by new ones which are better structured. It gives information to doctors which is more meaningful in making comprehensive assessment of the patients. Some tests are done by more advanced methods. These are helpful in reducing the overall cost of tests to the patients for the same diagnosis, economic benefit of which is passed to the patient (e.g., Dengue NS1, IgM & IgG used to be performed with 2 cards were costing Rs 1900. Now with single card cost has reduced to Rs 1200!). Advanced kits, though costlier, are being used as they ensure better accuracy and detection than the standard ones. Some tests are shifted to newer state of the art world class machines for accurate and precise results. Timely performing calibration and controls of the equipment, although more costly than the test themself, is an integral part of hospital policy for consistent results & continuous quality improvement. Since patient care and results are of utmost importance, quality is not compromised at any level.
These are the latest and the most advanced machines available till date in the world. These are equipped with many advanced probes and softwares not available with many others.
Even bedside X-Rays are available in digital quality. In difficult or “risky to move” patients, even sonography and color Doppler can be done bed side, without jeopardizing the safety of patients. Thus, Digital X-Ray, Ultrasound, Color Doppler and many other departmental facilities have been made available bed side. This avoids shifting of patient in risky and painful situations adding high degree of safety and comfort.
Procedures like Central line insertion, pleural tapping, closed drainage etc all are done under ultrasound guidance to minimize the risks, with minimal complications. They also add to better accuracy besides ensuring patient safety and comfort. Endoscopic procedures such as Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy can also be done for patients who are sick and cannot be transported to the hybrid OT. This ensures the best outcomes to the patients and minimizes the risk of line interruption and ventilator disconnection.
These are modernized to modular ones and equipped with advanced anesthesia gas monitors (AGM). This permits identification of concentration of anesthetic gases at the smallest level of lungs – the alveoli. MAC (Minimum alveolar Concentration) values help anesthetist to give anesthesia in minimum and safe but effective doses to the patient, an important parameter during anesthesia and during recovery from it. As temperature of OT is kept low to prevent any bacterial growth and for proper equipment function, not only is this uncomfortable for many patients, but in some it may be detrimental. For comfort and safety, heating blankets and body fluid warmers are used in appropriately selected cases.
The hospital has state of art Hybrid OT wherein endoscopic and surgical procedures are untaken with the highest level of sterility with zero tolerance to infection and cross infection. This translates to minimum use of antibiotics, faster recovery, lesser hospital stay and lesser financial burden to the patients and their family.
Speciality & Super-specialty departments having regular OPDs are:
It is the FIRST INSTALLATION IN SOUTH EAST ASIA. It is considered to be the best for Prostate surgery and all kinds of stones for “Stone Dusting”. Laser procedure or surgery are associated with lesser complications and less or no bleeding, When combined with endo-urological procedures, this make the surgery as “INCISION LESS”. It is safer for patients even in patients who are on blood thinners due to heart problems and paralysis due to ischemic stroke. It reduces duration of surgery and thus anesthesia. It reduces patient discomfort and also shortens duration of stay in the hospital. Since recovery is faster, patient can go back to work earlier, thus reducing the loss to company.
High definition endoscopes, laparoscopes and endoscopic urological instruments are equipped with NBI (Narrow Band Imaging), a technique used to differentiate between normal and abnormal tissue or to pick up early cancer, which is not possible to detect by standard endoscopes and methods. All procedures are routinely done under moderate sedation with Continuous vitals monitoring with Philips monitors, CO2 insufflator(UCR) and flushing pump(OFP2) to ensure patient safety, comfort and best procedure related outcomes.
The hospital provides complete “One stop solution” to all kind of STONES, including OPD procedure - Lithotripsy (ESWL), LASER, Endoscopic & Laparoscopic, all under one roof.
Our hospital had performed the maximum number of successful joint replacements with best results in central India.
Doctor patient relationship is built over years. So if any patient wants his treatment or surgery to be done by doctor of his choice, he is permitted to do so. Hospital not only provides infrastructure, but also assists in doing so for safety, comfort and best patient outcomes.
Some pioneer super-specialists of India, are available for Consultation &/or Surgery from time to time in the hospital.
Our newly established department, CSSD (Central Sterile Supply Department) now matches international standards and follows the strictest possible international norms for infection control. This department has contributed tremendously in following the best practices of sterilization & infection control, which has brought down the cost of treatment significantly.
This facility is available to patients on request at bed side at a cost. Attendants can also avail such services and have all three meals in canteen.
All of above is available as a standard.
In pursuit of excellence we have the best team of doctors who upgrade themselves with knowledge and skills by attending various conferences, workshops and courses held at national and international level. We have the team of dedicated nursing and paramedical staff as backbone of the hospital services.
As a hallmark of standard, we have been accredited by NABH level I. National Hospital is recognised by Madhya Pradesh Government.
Payment of government employees who are treated in hospital is exempted from Income Tax under section 17B, if applicable.
Elaborte list of various surgeries/procedure performed in various new speciality / super speciality department is available. To avoid ambiguity & standardise billing, surgery packages are designed which are most competitive in the current health infrastructue across India for the kind of services & infrastructure we provide. In basic OT package (BOTP), there are 3 categories of ward facilites & 9 categories (A to I) of surgeries in diverse superspeciality & CSSD charges. Inclusion / exclusions/ T&C are mentioned in appropiate sections.
Some services, which are not present in house are outsourced. Hospital has tie-ups with labs/scan centers etc to facilitate the process.
We have our customised health checks (5 Category) based on persons need. We customise health checks as per organisation also.
Most of the services/Facilites are billed as per the code to follow the standard norms for all.
National Hospital, Bhopal has started periodic super-specialty clinics of eminent visiting doctors of national & international repute from Metropolitan Cities. As modernization and expansion of facilities are the need of growing society and essential for coping with the best practices in modern medicine, any further development in future will be informed to you from time to time.
