    More than 270 times dialysis done of needy patients

    Corona’s influence was felt in all spheres of life including the health sector also life-saving facility of dialysis. The Corona period was particularly difficult for patients with Covid positive and for those who needed regular or periodic dialysis. Such patients are not getting proper care due to limited dialysis system in private or trust operated hospitals. So they were referred to government hospital.

    Dr. Ajay Dabhi from the SSG dialysis department said, Sayaji Hospital allotted 2 out of 12 machines at the regular facility for the corona department. The facility proved to be a blessing for the patients as more than more than 270 patients avail the facility during the current Corona crisis. This service is being provided to about 6 to 7 patients who are in need daily due to Corona positive and kidney failure or low efficiency. It is important to note here that the dialysis facility at Sayaji Hospital is functioning under the corona treatment facility at different place away from non Covid patients.

    In this regard, the nodal officer for the covid facility of Sayaji Hospital, Dr. O.B. Belim said, a separate hemodialysis unit was started in Corona’s ICU as well as Corona ward in view of the patients need as the crisis progressed. These machines are necessary to connect to the plant so two RO plants was also established.  The facility was also started in the Corona department of Gotri Hospital which has proved to be very useful and life saving for such patients.

    He said that patients suffering from kidney damage due to dysfunction or kidney failure need to have their blood purified every 15 days or month or by daily dialysis. This service is being provided at Sayaji Hospital with advanced hemodialysis machines.

    As per the directions of Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, the health department has taken care to provide such special facilities under the Corona treatment which has proved to be life saving.
    In Corona’s time, there was constant increase for dialysis, and sometimes patients who need urgent care were given priority, and those who needed less were asked to wait and given a date. However, both these government hospitals have shown and are serving the patients in times of crisis.
