At Panvel's R Jhunjhunwala Eye Hospital, meet this Band of Nurses
It takes a village to raise a child, and an army of medical professionals to run a hospital!
And when it's Sankara Hospitals, we ensure no stone is left unturned.
Because with Sankara, it's not just medical services offered.
Often it's also learning a new language!
At R Jhunjhunwala Sankara Hospital, Panvel, the team of nurses headed by Bharati are a formidable force, working in shifts at the different wings with equal panache and sincerity.
Bharati and the nurses start with learning to speak Marathi, the language of the locals, so they can understand and communicate well with the patients.
They talk to the old tribal patients about the conditions they are facing, in a simple, easy-to-understand language, and convince them to attend the eye camps, get themselves checked and then use the free services offered by Sankara for the eye surgeries, if required.
“They must be handled with love and care. Each nurse in my team is aware of that!
"They to be inclusive, empathetic, and supportive to each and every patient. Whether the patient arrives in a car, or the community bus, each one must be treated equally well, with care and respect.
“Such values are imbibed in all our employees, especially the crux of our caregivers – our band of nurses.
“ Bharati proudly talks about her band, as they busy themselves with the patient discharge formalities, and getting ready for the influx of the next batch of patients.
