AMINIA MEDICAL HOSPITAL
Jan Samaj Kalyan Samiti is planned to Established a Hospital as Purposed Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH).
Hospitals are below the district and above the block level hospitals and act as First Referral Units. Specialist services are provided through these hospitals. These hospitals should play an important referral link between the Community Health Centers, Primary Health Centers and sub centers. They have an important role to play as First Referral Units in providing emergency obstetrics care and neonatal care and help in bringing down the Maternal Mortality and Infant Mortality. It also saves the travel time for the cases needing emergency care and reduces the workload of the area hospital. In some of the states, hospital caters to about people. In bigger districts the hospitals fills the gap between the block level hospitals and the district hospitals. There are about 1200 such hospitals in the country with a varying strength of number of beds ranging from 25 to 50 Beds or more.
The Government of India is strongly committed to strengthen the health sector for improving the availability, accessibility of affordable quality health services to the people. In order to improve the quality and accountability of health services a set of standards need to be there for all health service institutions including sub-district hospitals.
Standards are a means of describing the level of quality those health care organizations are expected to meet or aspire to. The key aim of standard is to underpin the delivery of quality services which are fair and responsive to client’s needs, which should be provided equitably and which deliver improvements in health and well being of the population. Standards are the main driver for continuous improvements in quality. The performance of Hospital
The long-term goal of the Indian government and international funding agencies has been to provide health care to rural communities through PHCs. However, even with large funding, these centers have not been successful for a variety of reasons that include lack of decent facilities, equipment for performing even simple laboratory tests, etc. Even more important is a social reality: there just are not enough trained and qualified doctors to adequately serve the entire urban and rural populations of India even if we could provide financial incentives for them to work in rural areas. Since we believe that the dearth of doctors willing to practice in rural areas and their reluctance to travel to, let alone live in, remote areas will continue to exist for a long time to come, we have incorporated this reality into our planning from the start as described in this proposal.
Our plan, therefore, is to increase the effectiveness of doctors who are willing to work in rural areas by a large factor. This can be accomplished by reducing the need for doctors in the initial screening of patients, and by allocating one physician for every five Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH).Simultaneously; we plan to make working at Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) more attractive and satisfying.
The result of non-functioning Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) has been that, in many cases, diseases are not diagnosed in their early stages nor treated. The rural population has to often travel to urban areas when they can no longer bear the suffering caused by the disease, thus increasing the load on hospitals in urban areas and ending up with serious complications that, in many cases, could have easily been treated at their early stages. The need to rectify this problem has become critical especially given the fact that over 650 million people live in rural areas across the country with poor awareness of health issues. This ignorance, coupled with the increased mobility between rural and urban areas, has led to an explosive increase in the spread of diseases like HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B and C.
Objectives of Hospitals:
The objective is to improve and enhance the services offered by Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) in the rural communities of India. We propose to do this by applying novel solutions that take advantage of developments in harnessing solar power, computers, and information technology. Our strategy is to use technology to provide effective early medical intervention, deliver expert health care, and minimize the inconvenience caused to patients and health-workers from poor logistics and long travel time. An equally important role of Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) is to provide health education emphasizing family planning, hygiene, sanitation, and prevention of communicable diseases. A final step in this process will happen through video consulting and examination, a technology we anticipate becoming available in rural areas by year 2017.
- The overall objective of Hospitals is to provide health care that is quality oriented and sensitive to the needs of the people of the district. The specific objectives of Hospitals are:
- To provide comprehensive secondary health care (specialist and referral services) to the community through the Hospital
- To achieve and maintain an acceptable standard of quality of care
- To make the services more responsive and sensitive to the needs of the people of the district and act as the First Referral Unit (FRU) for the hospitals/centers from which the cases are referred to the hospitals
- Flexibility : The clinic will be the best cater to the relocation and permanent placement of the residents of the Kiratpur Block.
- Sustainability and Self-reliance: The clinic will be managed and operated.
- Accountability : The project will ensure proper stewardship of all funds.
- Cultural sensitivity : The project will be responsive to local culture and customs.
- Holism : The project will provide education, prevention and care.
We envisage Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) functioning as the
First level in a hierarchical system of health care facilities at this primary level, Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH) will play two equally important roles: First, diagnosis of diseases based on symptoms and simple laboratory tests, and their treatment either at the centers or through referral.
Second, health education leading to family planning, better hygiene and sanitation, and prevention of communicable diseases, especially sexually transmitted diseases.
The government has shown keen interest in finding private partners to revitalize the Aminia Medical College & Hospital (AMCH). To this end
