Medicare

 

From the Desk of the Resident Medical Doctor

The AVS Infirmary is a 32 bed hospital run by an eleven member health care team. The health care team aims at maintaining a clean, organized and healthy environment throughout the School. In order to achieve this, preventive, curative and other self care strategies are adopted. Extensive anthropometric measures are routinely carried out at the beginning and end of each term. Optimum care is taken to recommend the most nutritious food, based on the nutritional requirements for children. Regular health and sanitary rounds help to detect and curb diseases at the grass roots level. Immunizations and vaccinations are given utmost importance as it is a safe and effective way to help the body prevent and fight off certain diseases.

At the curative level, the hospital is well equipped to deal with most emergency situations that may arise in a residential school such as head injury, snake bite, myocardial infarction. The infrastructure in the hospital is designed so as to provide a homely environment for the sick child and at the same time maintain optimal levels of hygiene in order to expedite the process of recovery.
