PREVENTIVE HEALTH CHECKUPS
Aditya Hospital offers tailor made packages to suit the institution requirements as follows:
Emergency and trauma wing of Aditya hospital is open round the clock to meet any situation with fully equipped Minor Operation Theatre. Experienced Doctors, well-trained nurses and qualified emergency medical technicians are available round the clock and ably backed by a 24 hrs Diagnostic facility. We accept Medico Legal Cases (MLC) at our Causality Wing and treat them in our Acute Care Units.
We have a dedicated emergency number (040-39111333 for Abids and 040-33855555 for Uppal) to handle the emergency calls. A fleet of ambulances fully equipped with all the life saving equipment including monitors and ventilators ably support this department. All the ambulances have wireless communication systems through which the hospital is intimated prior to the patient arrival. The Emergency Physicians also give instructions to the medical technicians through the wireless system.
The advance ambulances are also equipped. Aditya hospital is recognized as a premier center of Trauma care and patients prefer / referred to this center from far and wide. The consultants are available round the clock to handle trauma cases pertaining to their specialty.
The emergency department is backed up by 24 hours blood bank, laboratory and the diagnostics. The critical patients are stabilized and then shifted to the Intensive care unit / operation theater.
All the staff of this department in particular undergo periodic training programs. These training programs will equip the emergency medical staff to handle the trauma and critical patients better.
The department has two theatres with facilities for minor surgery and endoscopy work. It also has 4 observation beds, 2 Casualty Centre Beds and a trauma ward with 6 beds.
The department also deals with Medico-legal cases, Medical Emergencies and Minor surgical work.
This department has a fully equipped cardiac ambulance service, which works round the clock & is manned with a team comprising of a doctor, nurse and paramedic.
The Laboratory service is an important component of any health care center. We all know today investigations play a vital role in the management of any illness. They provide us with clues that help decide on the treatment modality.
Accuracy, precision and timeliness are vital characteristics of any good and progressive laboratory. The Laboratory is fully automated and has state-of-the-art equipments that analyses all blood and body fluid parameters. The department of Laboratory Medicine is among few others in the country to be accredited with NABL 3 times in a row.
The department boasts of it’s quality through the numerous quality control programs (internal & external) that it carries out. The department functions “round-the-clock" throughout the year offering Inpatient and Outpatient testing capabilities with an extremely comprehensive menu of investigations to choose from which includes routine and specialized investigations.
The biochemistry laboratory is well equipped and is in keeping with the progressive outlook of the hospital. The laboratory has sophisticated state-of-the-art analyzers.
The entire process is integrated through Automated Konelab. It is capable of handling 180 parameters per hour for 72 patients. The instruments are capable of processing urgent (STAT) samples and can report the value, thus making critical information available quickly for emergency samples which is available online for inpatients.
The section has Blood Gas Analyzer, Electrolyte analyzer, LKB
The test menu covers over 180 different investigations ranging from the most elementary tests like glucose and electrolytes done by the state-of-the-art techniques to the most specialised tests like Tumour markers,
The lab carries out stringent quality control for all tests which are performed either by the analysers which is done at 3 levels twice a day or are done manually. The lab also participates in external Quality Control programmes from CMC wellore.

Hematology Haematology offers an exhaustive menu of investigations. Routine blood counts are done by top of the line equipment such as Coulter Advia 60; Blood Cell Analysers which give multiple parameters for each blood cell in every sample within a minute. The equipment generate interpretative data, thereby warning about abnormalities of red cells, white cells and platelets.
All such ‘flagged’ samples are visualised by the haemotologist to confirm diagnosis. A large variety of tests for characterising complex bleeding and thrombotic disorders are available. These include coagulation factor assays, tests for thrombophilia and platelet function tests. Reliable monitoring of oral anticoagulation is made possible with the help of high quality reagents.
Other specialized investigations being carried out include hemolytic anemia studies, etc. Qualified and dedicated staff and regular quality control exercises are strengths of the hematology services at this hospital.
Histopathology & Cytopathology
Histopathology offers services for processing of surgical specimens. In addition, ‘frozen section’ service is provided for urgent diagnosis, enzyme/muscle studies, fat stains, etc. Specialised study of kidney biopsies in chronic renal disorders & transplants by Immunofluorescence and Special Stains is possible due to the availability of the fluorescence microscope.
For more objective diagnosis of tumours, the Immunoperoxidase study utilising Monoclonal Antibodies and Immunohistochemical technique is available which makes diagnosis of undifferentiated and poorly differentiated tumours easier in more than 50% cases. This is also useful for hormone receptor analysis of tumors and oncogene studies.
The section also performs immunoperoxidase studies for dystrophin in frozen muscle tissue of muscular disorders. All surgical specimens are processed by standard technique and reported with grading and staging of tumours according to internationally used classifications. The cytopathology laboratory handles both gynaecological and non-gynaecological specimens sent for cytology.
About half of these are gynaecological ‘PAP smears’ for early detection of cervix cancer. The section has a standard preparing concentrated smears of body fluids with low cell count or of small volume specimens like CSF, Urine etc. Fine needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is also carried out for all palpable swellings in the body as the first line of investigative workup before a surgical biopsy.

Microbiology & Serology
The microbiology lab is well equipped with sophisticated systems such as Bactec 9050 for Blood Culture (the percentage of recovery can reach upto 30%) and ATB (Automated Testing in Bacteriology).
Antimicrobial susceptibility testing is performed both by disc diffusion & at MIC breakpoints by Autoscan are followed for antimicrobial testing.
Rapid results for ICU and urgent cases are available within 6-8 hrs instead of 24 hrs by conventional methods. TB cultures are done by TB Bactec which is a rapid method (10 days to 3 weeks instead of 6 weeks by the conventional methods).
Anti TB drug susceptibility is also faster (12 days instead of 3 – 6 weeks We have got molecular based technologies as Transcription Mediated Amplification (TMA), and TB PCR also available with us (Result within 48 hrs).
In addition phage assay for Mycobacterium tuberculosis gives results within 48 hrs. Apart from routine isolation & identification of all clinical samples, aerobic, anaerobic, fungal & mycobacterial cultures are also done.
Smears for Acid Fast Bacilli are done on all samples routinely. Antimicrobial resistance data are kept for> 10 yrs. Routinely microbiology surveillance of Operation Theatres & high-risk areas is carried out.
Definite policies for use of antibiotics, disinfectants & waste disposal are laid down by the Infection Control Committee and followed regularly. Protocols for all procedures are put up at all Nursing stations.
Needle-stick / post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) are followed for all Healthcare workers (HCWs) upto 6 months. Regular surveillance of all nosocomial infections and spot surveillance records are maintained.
