Medical emergencies are increasing at an exponential rate every day. Our hospital encounters an increasing number of acute cases in the form of Trauma, Medical, Surgical, Gynaecological and Pediatric emergencies and hence there is a need for adequate resources which include a well-equipped and sophisticated emergency room with agile doctors, paramedics and staff nurse versatile in dealing with all sorts of emergencies.
