Our nursing philosophy is that we always treat our patients as whole persons, which of course means that we do not reduce them to clinical pictures or disease patterns. All of our nursing staff is committed to this principle. They work in shifts, 24 hours a day, and put the doctor’s decisions into practice. The nursing leadership thus plays a key role in providing the direction and infrastructure to ensure that nurses are empowered to practice professionally and thus deliver high quality care. They are the backbone of treatment and your contact persons during your stay.
Behind the scenes they run many errands and perform many tasks having to do with your treatment. They have also an open ear for your wishes and problems at any time. Please do not hesitate to talk to the nurses on the wards about your feelings and needs. Nursing Service is the heart of the institution, which supports and provides comprehensive patient care at the primary, secondary, and tertiary care level within our institution.
At Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College and Hospital, the nurses are trained to not only execute the directions of a doctor; but also use theory and research based knowledge to provide direct and indirect care to the individuals and families. Patient education is another key factor of our patient care component. Patient education is important to enable individuals to better care for themselves and make informed decisions regarding medical care.
There is a comprehensive nursing concept which is oriented towards the patient’s needs and the furthering of the healing process. Sri Manakula Vinayagar Nursing College provides three-year training in nursing care and thus completes the spectrum of measures for continual quality improvement.
