Your contribution helps to save the life of newborn babies through quality medical treatment ………

In COVID 19 Pandemic, The PRIDE India’s SPARSH Rural Hospital is working with his full strength and dedication towards its commitment to Maternal and Child health through quality medical treatment services. In the Lockdown period, the SPARSH provided Ambulance services to ANC mothers and delivery mothers for pick up and drop. The other hospitals in the vicinity are refusing the patients due to the risk of COVID-19 spread and few other hospitals have been converted to fully COVID hospital. Hence there has been an increase in patient flow by almost three folds. In this crucial situation, we have been providing Material and Child health services by following precautionary measures in the hospital for safety for all patients including the Post Natal care ward. This initiative impacted 2132 expectant mothers and saved the lives of 590 newborn babies in Osmanabad district of Maharashtra state, India. 

A testimony is mentioned below:

Ranuka (Name change), 23 years old women residing in Bembali village, 60 km away from SPARSH Rural Hospital Sastur came with pain in abdomen and leaking. She was in 32 week of pregnancy and this was her third pregnancy.

In the examination report her hemoglobin was found to be at 9% gms which was very low indicating a high-risk pregnancy. Thus, doctor taken decision for an emergency LSCS and prescribed antibiotics for prevention of chorioamnitis. After medical process, she delivered a baby girl child with weight of 2 kg. A proper post-natal check-up and care was provided to both mother and child in the hospital.   At the time of discharge her haemoglobin level increased upto 10 % gms.

Now, mother and child are safe and happily discharged from the hospital after counselling of the family members on the importance of health and hygiene practices at home. Her family members thanked the doctor and team for timely support.

The PRIDE team would like to support many more such pregnant mothers through timely medical support…..

Thanks for all your support to the cause. Request you to join hands to support many more.

Amid the spike in the number of coronavirus cases, a district-level COVID 19 awareness campaign was conducted in collaboration with our SPARSH Mobile Medical Units covering 160 villages.

As a part of this campaign, our units reached out to every family, house to house, person to person in the districts of Osmanabad and Latur sensitizing the people through IEC materials, banners, loudspeakers, counseling on the precautionary measures of COVID 19 like hygiene, hand washing techniques, etc.  

Phase one of the campaign which included screening along with a survey was conducted to collect the health data of all families and trace suspected patients and individuals suffering from other ailments like chronic diseases, hypertension, breathlessness. The necessary COVID test was conducted immediately to detect the COVID infection followed by timely medical treatment for the positive patients.

This campaign helped in clearing the doubts and bringing in a better clear understanding of the infection among the people ensuring proper implementation of the precautions. The increased COVID-19 testings’ helped to trace and keep a track of the identified and suspected patients at the first stage of the infection itself, thus providing them with immediate and timely treatment.

Going forward, the second phase of the campaign would be to first vaccinate the frontline health teams followed by the identified, traced suspected patients and the individual suffering from other chronic ailments like hypertension, breathlessness, etc.

All the villagers were thankful to SPARSH hospital, the district authorities and all our well-wishers for this much-needed initiative of ‘My Family, My Responsibility’ as this has helped to curb the level of infection in the districts due to the precautions and the responsibility taken by every family member in the villages.

Many pregnant mothers and babies born during COVID 19 are threatened by strained health systems and disruptions in services due to the crisis caused by the pandemic.

The PRIDE India’s SPARSH Rural Hospital has continued to work with its full strength and dedication towards its commitment to Maternal and Child health care even during this COVID 19 crisis.

Due to the lockdown, as all regular transport services had been suspended and unavailable, SPARSH provided Ambulance services for the pick and drop of the ANC and PNC mothers with complete, full-fledged round the clock services and medical treatment.

While many hospitals have been converted to fully COVID hospitals, the non – COVID hospitals in the vicinity refused to provide treatment and turned away many patients including pregnant mothers due to the risk and fear of the spread of the infection, however, SPARSH Hospital continued its work towards the service and care for the Mother and Child. During this time, the hospital has also witnessed an increase in the flow of patients by almost three folds. In the last three months, the hospital registered more than 226 ANC mothers for treatment and has conducted more than 480 successful deliveries. Bedside health awareness sessions were provided to all mothers to ensure proper care and hygiene practices are followed to avoid the infection of COVID 19.

Additionally, to curb the infection in the hospital and to ensure the safety of the mother and child in the post-natal ward, a full-body disinfectant spray system has been installed at the entry of the hospital premises for the safety of all.

The ANC and the PNC mothers and their families have thanked SPARSH Hospital and its well-wishers for providing immediate medical treatment and ensuring safety and saving the lives of the mother and child.

Over the past three years, with the improvised and strengthened facilities, SPARSH Rural Hospital has benefitted many patients with special focus on the ANC / PNC mothers.

  • 3330 mothers benefitted through safe delivery from across from 344 villages from 7 districts of Maharashtra and Karnataka.
  • 3306 Mothers benefited with ANC clinical services at OPD with USG facility.
  • 973 (29.2 %) high risk deliveries (patients with hypertension, diabetes, severe anemia, previous history miscarriages) handled by medical staff
  • 582 sick neonates benefited from New Born sick unit (NBSU) 
  • 1555 family planning surgeries conducted.
  • Nutritional support during their stay in hospital and post delivery snack for 2 weeks as take away provided to all mothers.
  • Built capacities of grassroot government workers (ASHA/ANM) for awareness and referral for ensuring safe delivery and also promoted access to govt schemes like free ambulance services/ other maternity schemes.
  • 919 ANC and PNC mothers linked to outreach program and tracked regularly for follow-up through Mobile Medical Unit and mobile application- 'M Mitra’ (Mobile voice call) portal.

In this unprecedented COVID 19 pandemic, as the nation struggles to tackle the increasing number of COVID 19 cases, the majority of the public and private hospitals have converted to fully COVID 19 treatment hospitals. Also, many doctors shut their clinics fearing the contraction of the virus. The added suspension of all public transport, cutting off access to all healthcare services to the people creating an acute need for medical care and support to the patients in need.

The acute need for medical care in this COVID pandemic situation where most hospital services were closed to all pregnant patients and the general population in the vicinity, our SPARSH hospital has stood up as warrior & fighter providing 24 hours of essential services to the surrounding villages. During this time SPARSH has witnessed an increasing flow of patients, especially the post-natal care ward wherein 312 deliveries were conducted in April 2020 and May 2020 (numbers increased by 55 percent) exceeding our bed capacity. Thus 5-6 beds were added on the premise to address the need.

With the main challenges faced with patients Patients coming from COVID hotspot areas however, all precautions being taken by sanitization of the premise and set up of full-body sanitization system at entry. A Separate OPD for COVID-19 symptom and an isolation ward for testing initiated away from the main building. All expecting mothers with a travel history of 14 days compulsorily being tested for COVID.

In such a critical scenario, SPARSH hospital has been a lifesaving bridge between the villages and tertiary hospital services, catering to the needs of rural patients of India. SPARSH Rural hospital is not designated as COVID-19 center but is always prepared for unforeseen cases and situations.

We appeal our well-wishers to support in fighting this pandemic and join us in containing the virus….
