Operation Theatre

We have fully equipped OT and CSSD (Central Sterile Supply Department). We have following types of sterilization

  • Autoclave: Steam sterilization
  • ETO (Ethylene Trade Oxide): All type of plastic and tubing are being sterilized with ETO as per the standards
  • STERRAD (Gas plasma sterilizer): We also have one of the advanced sterilization in which we sterilize all endoscopic and laparoscopic instruments. One of the advantages of this is sterilization is done within 30 minutes and the instruments can be used immediately.

Patient safety: We mainly focus on patient safety and these are some of the steps

  • The patient is identified with a wrist identification tag and patient file in transfer bay
  • Time out (Patient name, Hosp. No and surgery side, antibiotics given) is being done by the Anesthetist in the presence of surgeon and scrub nurse before starting surgery
  • OT temperature and humidity are monitored
  • We have a warm touch machine a to keep the patient warm, especially pediatric cases
  • We apply TED (Thrombo Embolic Devices) and SCD (Sequential Compression Device) during the prolonged surgery to avoid DVT(Deep Vein Thrombosis)

Operating rooms: We have 3 operating theaters. Each theater is equipped to conduct the most advanced and complicated surgery.

  • In OT we have well-trained nurses to assist in the latest endoscopic/laparoscopic surgery
  • OT environment is being periodically monitored by sending the surveillance swabs. These measures provide sterile environment and have resulted in a minimal infection rate. So we use single-dose antibiotics in most elective cases.
  • Strict aseptic precautions and sterile atmosphere is monitored with continuous airflow filtered by HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters and the same has been monitored in all theaters.
