To meet the increasing requirements, CARE Hospitals, Visakhapatnam, started its own Blood Bank. The bank serves the hospital’s blood needs, making it independent for all its blood supply.
All our ACLS ambulances are well equipped with defibrillators, monitors, ventilators, suction, oxygen, drugs, etc. Our emergency services provide the best pre-hospital care for all the emergency calls received. The ambulances are manned by trained emergency medical technologists and drivers who provide pre-hospital care at home and en route to the hospital. The EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians) are well experienced and have good knowledge and skills in emergency management. They work under the guidance of the emergency department and maintain direct contact with consultants of various disciplines for necessary action regarding the management of an emergency patient.
We also specialize in providing ambulance services for transfer of patients from long distances by road and air and have transferred hundreds of patients since our inception. A dedicated team of anesthesiologists and emergency medical technologists provide 24 x 7 services.
