Many accidents take place on the highway between Vellore, Villlupuram and Thirukoilur. Besides highways many accidents take place also on the subways all across the highways. But, there are no emergency care units to take care of the injured. Many valuable lives are lost because of lack of accessible emergency care. With immediate medical and nursing help it is possible to save valuable lives. This project aims to organize an Accidents & Emergency Care Unit on the highway.
The challenge is to fulfill the emergency care need to look after highway and subway accidents in a rural area. Every year many accidents take place in the highway Vellore, Villupuram & Thirukoilur. Many accidents take place also in the subways across the highways. many valuable lives are lost for lack of immediate and timely medical and nursing help. There are also fire accidents, poison cases etc in the villages that lie all across the highways. There have been many deaths due to these.
Instituting an Accidents & Emergency Care Unit In the Rural Highway will be the measure that will be undertaken through this project. This unit will look after the emergency care needs of accidents on highways and sub-ways, fire accidents, stings and bites, poison cases etc and will prevent deaths by giving timely medical and nursing help. WFW will involve 60 girls studying the 3 years diploma in nursing organized by the St. Mary's School of Nursing that is situated on the mentioned highway.
An Accidents & Emergency Care Unit would have come up thus fulfilling a felt as well a real need. Many valuable lives will be saved. Nursing students in the St. Mary's School of Nursing will know the intricacies of extending nursing help in emergency situations. This knowledge and skills will be translated into action wherever the girls are in the future. WFW will involve the students in organizing prevention education programs for vulnerable groups of people. 10,000 lives will be save.
