Say one fine day you had to visit the hospital but the duty doctor was unavailable. Will you turn to another hospital? Or will you wait till the doctor arrives?
But, with Ayu Health Hospitals by your side, you never would have to face another day of hassle! We ensure excellent clinical care for our patients through optimal doctor coverage.
Let's explore why this is so important and how it impacts patient care.
But, first, let's define what we mean by doctor's coverage.
Doctor's coverage refers to the availability of doctors in the hospital to attend to patients' medical needs. It is the ratio of the number of doctors available to the number of patients seeking medical attention.
Prompt medical attention: With adequate doctor coverage, patients can receive prompt medical attention when they need it, making a huge difference in the outcome of their medical condition.
Continuity of care: Having sufficient doctors available results in the same doctor following up on his/her patient's condition and providing personalised care. Continuity of care can help in better diagnosis, monitoring, and management of the patient's health.
Reduced wait time: When there are more doctors available, patients don't have to wait long to see a doctor. This can be especially important in emergency situations when time is of the essence.
Staffing levels: We ensure that adequate staffing levels at our hospitals are maintained.
Shifts and schedules: Our doctors work in shifts and schedules to ensure that we have adequate coverage at all times. We also have on - call doctors who can be reached in case of emergencies.
Training and development: We invest in our doctors' training and development to ensure that they are equipped with the latest medical knowledge and techniques
