A visit to a hospital in a whole lot of experience in itself. During this summer, one of my Grandfathers was admitted to a hospital due to his illness. When I went to see him, I went to the hospital for the very first time in my life. My Grandfather was admitted in Billroth hospital.
As I entered the hospital, I saw people going here and there. First I saw a temple on the right side of the entrance, on the left side a outpatient pharmacy. Then I entered the hospital right side was the enquiry office and left side was the information office. I went to the enquiry office and enquired about the ward to find where my Grandfather was admitted.
DESCRIPTION OF INDOOR WARDS:
Firstly, I passed through the surgical ward. I saw patients lying silently on their leads. Some of the patients had their arms and legs bandaged and plastered. Various Nurses and Doctors were attending on them. The Doctor was directing the nurse to give the necessary treatment and medicine. His way of talking itself was very consoling. Quietness was prevailing in the whole ward. In the next ward patients were lying pensively on their beds. From their faces, I guessed the pathetic pledge. The doctor came on rounds followed by other staff members. He enquired about the welfare of all the patients one by one and that too very sympathetically and patiently. He entered my Grandfather room for checking. He investigated what was the condition of my Grandfather and informed to take investigations like Blood, Urine, CT scan (abdomen) and endoscopy investigations.
THE VIEW OF INVESTIGATION ROOM:
Then, I spoke with the nurse to show the investigation department to know what was the procedure to take place during the alone investigations. Next day, Morning when I again went to see my grandfather they took Blood sample of my grandfather and they adviced to take him to the CT scan department. I went with my grandfather to see the CT scan department. There I was restricted to enter. The procedure took a half an hour. For the first time I saw a CT scan machine. It was huge and the room was fully air – conditioned. I asked a Nurse why the room air – conditioned? She said “So that the patient’s infection doesn’t spread to anyone”, i.e. it is infection free. Some patient who were accompanied by their relatives. The relatives were squatting in lawns of the hospital. Some of the people were going home after recovering completely from their illness and were in highly delighted mood.
As a whole, the entire hospital presents a very gloomy look when I left the hospital. The plight of the patients and the curiousness of the atmosphere prevailing there touched me deep within. The behavior of doctors and nurses are worthy of commendations. They acted most wisely and ably in handling problems of the patients. When I came out of the hospital, I realized that there is a whole lot of difference in the atmosphere that prevails inside and outside the hospital.
