Chennai, Tamil Nandu, September 12, 2010 /India PRwire/ — Chennai-based India Home Health Care Pvt. Ltd., today announced the launch of ‘Professional Care For The Patient At Home’ in Chennai. Through this service, India Home Health Care will provide professional nursing and nursing assistance at the home of the patient, with a view to support the medical fraternity both in terms of care and documentation. The service is launched in association with select hospitals of Chennai in the initial phase and the same will be rolled out to cover all major hospitals of the city and later to Bangalore. National roll out is expected in the next half year.
Briefing newsmen, Mr V Thyagarajan, Director, India Home Health Care Pvt. Ltd., stated that this service is designed to provide post-operative care for the recuperating / convalescent patient, under the direct and immediate supervision of the doctor involved. “India Home Health Care service is designed to provide the same level and quality of service as in a state of the art hospital right inside the patients’ homes. Professionally qualified and trained nurses provide personalized attention to the patient and studies worldwide have established that the rate of recovery for a normal and routine patient is faster at home than in a hospital. Besides it saves the patient’s family enormous hassles on logistics of tending to the patient in a hospital. Hence we believe that our service will be eagerly awaited by the patient community as also their families” he said.
Mr Frank Goller, COO, India Home Health Care observed that the singular benefit of this service is that the patient in a recuperative phase is under individualized attention of a trained nurse, the closest alternative to the personal supervision of the doctor himself. “This service will free up expensive hospital beds that would otherwise be occupied by convalescent patients. The hospitals can continue with the primary objective of in-patient care and surgical assistance, leaving the auxiliary monitoring and administration of the patient to trained nursing staff. Hospital administrators have welcomed this move and we expect total support and co-operation from them. We have also established a set of reporting protocols in consultation with the doctors, which will be adhered to by our nurses and nursing assistants. Thus professional care for the patient at home is now a reality at a fraction of the hospital costs” he averred.
Lt. Col. (Retd.) Ms Ameerunnisa, Home Health Administrator and responsible for the implementation of the service at home, believes that the patients would welcome such a move. With 25 years of nursing services in the Armed Medical Corps, Ameer states that the ‘home environment is a great stimulator for the patient on the road-to-recovery’. “We Indians are living longer and families are getting nuclear. Old age and diseases go hand in hand. Consequently the pressure on the family is enormous, when any one of the members becomes unwell or needs hospitalization. Our service seeks to address the emotional side of the family anxiety. Patients as also the families who have experienced our service are delighted with the kind of professional approach and support extended by our team. The doctors to whom our nurses report on patient health and recovery status are quite appreciative of the feedback as also the documentation. A service of this nature has long been overdue” she explained. Do please log on to: www.indiahomehealthcare.com for more details.
