Emergency Care, Redefined
A medical emergency is an acute injury or illness that poses an immediate risk to a person’s life or long-term health. Any response to an emergency medical situation depends strongly on the situation, the patient involved and availability of resources for treatment.
In the recent times, emergency management itself has evolved into a specialty, where doctors who specifically trained for emergency management are called “Emergency Medicine Specialists”.
E-ONE – Emergency response system
A fully-equipped emergency care response system from Citizens Specialty Hospital, E-ONE is a comprehensive system that deploys trained clinical manpower, state-of- the-art technology as well as evidence-based treatment management processes to ensure the best possible outcomes in any emergency situation. F-ONE, as a program, is equipped to manage a patient right from the place of incident, through a fully-equipped ICU ambulance, till the patient is received at the hospital’s premises by the emergency department.
E-ONE ambulances are manned by fully-trained “Emergency Medical Technicians” (EMT) and are equipped with advanced technology called “Tele-medicine” that transmits patient vital parameters to the command center in the emergency department at the hospital. This enables EMTs to start the treatment in the ambulance itself, saving precious time.
Prompt & targeted care at the hospital
The hospital’s emergency room works as a nodal point for integrated care delivery for patients requiring immediate medical attention for regular medical emergencies as well as for emergencies that require special care such as Cardiac, Neuro, Ortho, Critical Care etc. Tele-medicine technology enables the team to be prepared at the time of arrival of the patient and also the specialists to be ready to treat the patient immediately upon arrival. The fully equipped F-ONE emergency room at Citizens Specialty Hospital is well equipped with 20 beds.
Multi-disciplinary team at work
Post primary assessment, the patient is moved to the specialized care unit for further management as required. The F-ONE emergency care unit is supported round-the-clock by all other important support systems such as a 24×7 blood bank, Anesthetists and Radiologists for further diagnosis. Also, Citizens Specialty Hospital has a set of fully-equipped and 24×7 manned Intensive Care Units (IC U) that can cater to just about any emergency depending on the specialty of care that is required.
