Kirpal Sagar Charitable Hospital
The primary care of emergency patients takes place in the emergency room on the ground floor. There is an ECG machine, a laboratory, an ultrasound unit and a modern X-ray machine available. On the first floor, there is an operating room with a recovery unit and an area for instrument preparation.
Since 2013, patients with renal failure have been treated with dialysis machines. The hospital pharmacy also offers medicines for outpatients. It is planned that the hospital will later be integrated with the practical training departments of a Medical College (training of medical doctors) as well as a College of Nursing Science.
Camps for medical care
The hospital not only offers medical care for people from the surrounding area, but also for the needy from more distant areas through free so-called Medical Camps. These camps provide free examinations, treatments and medicines and are conducted partly in available public rooms, partly in tents.
Since May 2012, the hospital has also regularly provided personnel for the mobile clinic of a cooperating charity. The special vans for the mobile clinic are comparable to a modern medical practice on wheels, with an examination table, a small laboratory and accommodation for medical equipment and medicines.
Dr. Harbhajan Singh himself was known as “doctor for the needy”, and he organized the first camps in the early 1980s. Hundreds of needy people could be examined free of charge in a tent with a table and some chairs. It was amazing how he integrated traditional, naturopathic and homeopathic methods and medicines. He always had an open mind for his patients’ needs and helped them not only medically, but also practically without bureaucracy in many other fields.
