How A Nursing College Is Catering To Covid Patients For Free

Published

By

A lot of negativity has been spread in the country. People are dying each day. Some are losing their loved ones while some are struggling to save the lives of their loved ones. At such time many people, organisations, NGOs have come forward to save the humanity and people of the country. Among such people, there is Barrister Nath Pai Shikshan Sanstha which runs a nursing and physiotherapy college in Kudal in Maharashtra’s Sindhudurg. The college has been converted into a free-of-cost 50-bed Covid-care facility for patients from neighbouring villages and towns.

The college has 50 beds which are arranged in a multi-purpose hall that normally hosts the college events. The computer lab of the college has been converted into a makeshift ICU which is under the surveillance of 2 doctors. The centre has 14 oxygen concentrators and 1 ECG machine which are either donated or purchased from the funds collected.

President of the Sanstha Umesh Galvankar said “With a daily caseload of more than 150, the few government and private hospitals in the area cannot handle so many patients. So that’s why we have converted our college into a covid care facility. We approached the local donors and the government for the funds and permission. Our college doesn’t provide facility to anyone but the who have been prescribed home isolation or those who have been discharged from hospitals after treatment will be accommodated here. 2 doctors, who live within a one-kilometre radius from the college, will monitor the patients and track their reports. Local government authorities have sanctioned medicines, PPE kits and sanitisers for the centre and three resident doctors are set to join them soon. “Everything from their tests and medicines to food is free for the patients.”

Young girls, studying to be nurses, have voluntarily stepped in to care for the patients. Final-year nursing students, set to graduate in three months, started preparing a week ago, conducting drills and setting routines. The centre has also sought the services of senior doctors from Mumbai who conduct tele-counselling regularly to monitor the progress of patients.

The centre organises yoga sessions, psychological counselling and physiotherapy, all led by their teachers of the nursing and physiotherapy college and local doctors. With Covid-19 being a respiratory disease, physiotherapists conduct simple breathing exercises for the patients who have tested negative and are recovering.

The centre plans to run till June 30 and is accepting donations to fund its services aimed at underprivileged patients.
