Desun Today : September 2016 - During this Puja send your medical worries on a holiday
TOMAR CHUTI AMAR NOY
Every year, as the festive fever sets in Bengal, there is always a hidden fear of medical emergency in every one. Where to go ? What to do?
What if my near and dear ones fall in Emergency during crucial 1 month period between Mahalaya and Kali Puja when most of Hospital Critical Care services also go on a holiday?
If past records are something to go by, a majority of Medical Emergency facilities, both in private and public healthcare sectors are simply inoperative during festive days. So even if one is able to admit his patient during Emergency in an ICU, rarely there are specialist doctors or infrastructure available to take charge or operate if necessary.
What do I do when I find out that my family physician has gone on a long vacation?
Afterall, it is but human for doctors to be on leave once in a year. But what if a medical emergency springs up? Whom does the patient party look forward to for consultation on something that is as crucial as life and death?
How do I manage to get hold of an Ambulance to take my patient to the hospital during the virtual shut down of services in the festive season ?
With the entire state celebrating the 1 month festive season, essential services like Ambulance also takes a hit. And more often than not, getting something as essential as an Ambulance becomes a nightmare!
