NSS Unit of Uttaranchal University organized and conducted a visit to a hospital with almost 100 students of the university on September 19, 2017. The purpose of this visit was to make the students aware of the general functioning of the hospital. This knowledge would be beneficial for the students for themselves and their families and as a whole for the society, as the University believes in preparing serving citizens for the country.
The students were taken to Mahant Indresh Hospital located in the Patel Nagar area of the city by the University bus in the morning. The University students and staff were received cordially by the hospital Reception Staff. From there the students were taken to different departments of the hospital like Cardio, Neuro, Ortho and Pediatrics. They were shown the general wards as well as the ICU, and ICCU wards of the hospital. The students got an opportunity to meet few doctors and surgeons of the hospital who added to their knowledge regarding the general hygiene and medical practices of the hospital. There was a heavy influx of patients in the hospital from various parts of city as well as the hilly areas of the State.
The hospital runs 24 hrs and 7 days a week and the students were impressed on seeing the state of the art infrastructure available in the heart of the city. Dr. V. K. Srivastava was generously thanked by all the students for organizing such a trip which assured to everyone that there was no need to move out of the city in case of a medical emergency and all the facilities are available within the city. It further helped the students as they got to learn about the various formal procedures of the hospital in case of a need.
