- About CARE
- For Patients
All the consultants are full-time employees of the hospital; hence, outpatient services are available on all working days. We have doctors in the positions of medical and surgical registrars, junior and senior registrars, and junior and senior residents, thus offering 24 hours coverage in areas such as Casualty, Wards, Intensive Care Units and Post Op recovery areas. Any complaints in the odd hours are first attended to by the resident doctors and, depending upon the case, the respective consultants are called in to attend to the patients.
CARE Hospitals are multispecialty hospitals and offer the complete range of medical and surgical specialties under one roof, with highly experienced doctors, state-of-the-art infrastructure and diagnostic services.
You are required to contact the admission counter, where our executives will give you details about the various packages, bed categories and other charges. After finalization of the package and bed category, you will be given an IP (inpatient) number. On completion of all the admission formalities, you will be guided to the respective ward/room.
Charges applicable for day care (less than 8 hours) are calculated on the basis of half-day bed charges.
Yes, patients are required to pay a deposit as per the category of the bed at the time of admission. In case of a surgery or a procedure, the total estimated amount has to be deposited with the hospital before the surgery.
Patients can make the deposit by cash, debit or credit cards or demand draft. We do not accept cheques.
Attendants need to vacate the room if the patient is shifted to an ICU.
Yes, if your TPA is on the panel of our hospital.
Yes, we have an ambulance service round-the-clock.
To minimize crowding and noise in the patient care area, only one attendant pass is issued per patient. The pass has to be surrendered at the admission counter at the time of the discharge.
Your consultant will make an entry for discharge on your case sheet. After this, the resident doctors prepare the discharge card. Then the file is sent to the IP reception for clearance, after which the final bill is prepared, taking into account all the deposits. When the final bill is ready, payment has to be made at the admission counter. This procedure may take 2-3 hours.
We provide complimentary food for the patient from the hospital kitchen. Attendants need to make their own arrangements or eat in the cafeteria.
The following documents are required for a refund:
I. Final bill (original)
ii. Receipts of all payments
iii. Check-out slip

In the case of packages, for transfer to a higher category the total difference in the package charge has to be paid before the transfer.
Billing is done on a 24-hour basis.
