Department (ED) is the acute access point for all
tertiary care in this hospital. The ED sees 15,000 -
20,000 patients annually, of which 68% get admitted. We are
one of the busiest Emergency Departments in Kolkata, & have
set high standards in patient care, & are well-prepared and
trained to meet the demands of the emergency room. It is
manned by doctors who are specialists in Emergency Medicine.
The Department has undergone a refit to transform itself
into a very modern state of the art facility, in a fully
equipped 19 bed Emergency Department with well trained
Emergency Physicians. We have a dedicated trauma team with
an operation theatre in the ED, and the support of a well recognised Orthopedics Department and National Neurosciences
Centre, consisting of Neurosurgical and Neurology
Consultants to support us 24 X 7.
The Emergency Department is actively involved in academics
like regular training classes for the Nursing, Paramedics
and Junior Doctors of various departments of the Hospital.
We also undertake ACLS, BLS courses at regular intervals and
have started the Masters in Emergency Medicine, a Post
Graduate Course, in collaboration with George Washington
University, USA. It also leads the Disaster Management
Cell and the Code Blue Team of the Hospital. There is also a
Departmental Quality Assurance team which monitors Audits,
Research and is constantly striving to improve quality of
patient care in the department.
In an emergency, every minute counts in providing the best
care, & at Peerless Hospital this not only means quality
medical care, it also means personalized attention to our
patients; & also taking Emergency Care to a new level.
