Our 1:1 patient-to-nurse ratio for our 300 critical care beds reduces the chances of cross infection.

Strict protocols to deliver consistent & quality care

We have a streamlined admission process that is automated from the starting point in the OPD or emergency. Each patient is explained the plan of care or procedure to be performed, the expected length of stay and estimated bills before admission, the insurance process is initiated and rooms are allocated according to the choice of room and category of the patient. Discharge readiness is continually assessed during admission and whenever the patient is deemed to be getting fit to go home, the discharge protocols are activated in advance so that the patient does not have to wait long for the discharge formalities. The hospital provides for discharge lounges for patients who need to wait while their family prepares to take them home. Continuity of care is ensured at the time of discharge by providing clear discharge instructions as well as follow-up instructions and appointments. Home care services and transportation services are also available if required by the patients. All patients coming to the emergency are assessed immediately to determine the need for emergent / urgent care and looked after appropriately.
We practice evidence based care and to standardize care protocols according to the latest available evidence, clinical pathways and clinical practice guidelines are used. The pathways are updated as and when required, staff are trained in its use and compliance to the pathways is monitored. The impact of the care provided is measured through clinical outcomes by each clinical speciality and for each individual physician. These outcomes are benchmarked to the clinical outcomes published in international literature.
Following the principle of “Let food be thy medicine”, each patient in Medanta is assessed by a dietician and diet planning and education is done accordingly. All dietary assessments and diet plans in the hospital are done electronically to ensure timely and correct food delivery. Food-drug interactions are especially kept in mind and diet modifications planned accordingly.
The organization has the latest technology the world has to offer and continually acquires new equipment that aids in better patient care. Acquisition of equipment is from evaluated vendors to ensure the best quality equipment. Every equipment in the hospital has an inventory number and is tracked for preventive maintenance and calibration for safe use. Breakdowns are swiftly addressed and backups are available for all critical equipment. Training on equipment use is provided to all staff at the time of joining and as refreshers.
