Vikram Hospital, Bengaluru, the trusted multi-specialty healthcare facility, has taken a step further in ensuring patient convenience with the launch of a new initiative that takes post-surgical care to their doorsteps. Christened Post Surgical Home Care Services, Vikram Hospital Bengaluru will provide specialist support and post-operative care to such patients seeking lesser number of hospital visits, without compromising on the quality of care.
Vikram Hospital is offering these services with the same amount of attention and care in the confines of the patient’s homes, absolutely free of cost. The service was launched by Mr Sampath Kumar, Corporator, Vasanth Nagar Constituency in the city along with Sudhir Pai, Executive Director and CEO, Vikram Hospital, Bengaluru. The home service is expected to reduce the number of visits a patient has to undertake post surgery and help in their speedy recovery. Under the service, Vikram Hospital will provide a broad category of services like checking on vitals, suture removal, change of dressing, blood sugar monitoring, updating the status and progress of the patient to the consultant, etc. to name a few.
Congratulating the hospital and lauding its efforts to offer home care to patients, Mr Sampath Kumar said, “Vikram Hospital has been doing some great work. And one of the reasons for seeing such good success is the determination of everyone associated with the hospital to relentlessly work for the benefit and betterment of its patients. The home care service is noble initiatives that will help patients achieve speedy recovery without the need to come to a hospital. They are also being assured of the same quality care and treatment. All this without any added cost. This is a great start by the hospital and I wish them many more successes.”
Announcing the launch of the Home Care Service in Bengaluru, Mr. Sudhir Pai, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Vikram Hospital, Bengaluru said, “Undergoing a surgery is not an easy task. Not to mention that such situations not only have a direct impact on the patient but their families as well who are responsible for the wellbeing and care of the patient after the procedure. Moreover, the timeline for recovery of every patient that undergoes a surgical procedure varies and a person might take longer than usual time to heal completely.”
Pai continued, “Patients who have undergone surgery have to visit the hospital a minimum of 2-3 times, for procedures such as suture removal or change of dressing etc. However these procedures can be done at the patient’s house by trained staff, thus avoiding the need of hospital visits, which is an inconvenience to the patient (who is still recuperating) and his family member. Vikram Hospital has always made efforts at doing things differently and offered services that provide for a hassle-free and a convenient experience to its patrons. Our Home Care Service is an extension of the very same personalised service and care that we have been offering our patients. I am certain that this service will see a tremendous uptake and bring smiles to our patients and their families alike.”
“Vikram Hospital has already completed 500 home visits as part of a pilot project and has received excellent response from patients. Everyone has appreciated the facility and commended us on this initiative”, said Mr Pai.
