PROVIDING AN ENVIRONMENT FOR SAFE DELIVERIES

Ever since COVID-19 has affected Pakistan, Medicare Health Foundation has taken strict measures for the safety of the hospital environment, both for the patients and the staff. At the heart of our efforts lies the concern that pregnant women need utmost care and babies must be born in an infection free environment.

 

EACH BIRTH IS PRECIOUS

Even in risky times like these, our staff has not shied away from its responsibilities, and we continue to deliver healthy babies at our hospitals, We have strict hospital Standard Operating Procedures regarding the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by all our staff

FIRST ENT SURGERY AT NOOR MEDICARE

In January, we performed our first ENT surgery, after a patient was diagnosed with a nose PNS. A team of experts on contract with the hospital, including an ENT specialist doctor and an anesthetist, performed the surgery successfully, and the patient was fully recovered in the following weeks.

 

"I CAN NOW MOVE MY ARM"

Our 4 year old patient Hamza, who came all the way from Mansehra, had elbow crease burns which prevented him from stretching and flexing his arm. His surgery was conducted at Noor Medicare Hospital. Subsequently, his recovery was phenomenal and he can now move his arm perfectly again.

 

WHAT MEDICARE HAS DONE SO FAR TO PREVENT COVID-19

all the people entering our facility first pass through the sanitization tunnel placed at the entrance, which was donated by Bilal Engineering Pvt. Limited. Subsequently, their temperature is taken and their hands are sanitized.

All our staff wears PPE, and adheres strictly to the protocols necessary for prevention of COVID-19.
