Infectious diseases are disorders caused by pathogenic organisms such as viruses, bacteria, or fungus. Most such microorganisms are normally harmless but under certain conditions, some organisms can be fatal and can cause death too. Infectious diseases affect billions of people around the globe annually.
While most infections can be treated by good medical care and antibiotics, antifungals and antiviral agents, the infection causing microorganisms keep getting resistant to medicines and hence DHS doctors follow a strict antibiotic policy to reduce the incidence of drug resistant infections.
DHS hospital has special chambers for admitting patients with infectious diseases called negative air pressure chambers.
Intensive care units have to treat many different kinds of patients, some of whom may be very likely to catch infections, while others may be sources of infection. Two specially created, separate enclosed ICU beds in DHS hospital take care of such patients.
Certain types of immune suppressed diseases make patient vulnerable to infection. A special positive pressure chamber ICU takes care of such patients. Patients who are on immunosuppression medicine or who have undergone organ transplant like kidney transplant are kept in positive air pressure ICU chamber.
While some patients may cause infection to others, such patients are accommodated in negative pressure chamber ICU. Patients suffering from infectious and contagious diseases like H1N1 Swine ‘Flu, open cases of tuberculosis, pneumonia etc are treated in the negative air pressure ICU chamber.
The ICU will be manned by adequate medical and paramedical staff every day of the year.
Specially trained staff is designated to treat patients in isolation chambers. The staff will wear sterile clothes when treating patients. The biomedical waste from the isolation rooms are isolated before being destroyed.
Apart from the clinical departments DHS hospital has many critical and crucial supportive facilities. These insure prompt and quality patient care.
DHS hospital is the best place for patients needing lifetime dialysis. Our ultra-modern dialysis machines give the best results.
