Aspiring Medical students of Class XI visited AMRI Hospital, as part of their field visit. AMRI is a private healthcare group providing medical services backed by latest technology at Bhubaneswar. Students were cordially received at the Conference Hall and briefed about their infrastructure and facilities by Dr. Biswajeevan Sahoo, Assistant Medical Superintendent, AMRI.
They were also taken around on a guided tour around the hospital. Students got to see the Operation Theatre, Casualty, various Departments as well as rooms where X-Ray, MRI, Ultrasound etc are done. Students were delighted to see the Pneumatic tube which helps in transporting medicines from one section to another. They also got a detailed briefing on the Management of the Blood Bank, like how the sampling is done and how it is stored as well as what kind of tests are conducted to ensure that the blood is infection free. Students also got to know about stocks and machinery management of a hospital.
The Doctor-in-Charge also briefed them about the various staffs required to manage a hospital, apart from Doctors and Nurses, like Para Medicos, Administrative staffs, Maintenance people and others. He also spoke about the importance of empathy while dealing with patients.
Students had a brilliant learning time getting to know about new technology in the field of medical science, getting to see an Operation theatre from close quarters or learning about the management of a hospital.
