The OPD is fully operational five days a week for routine outpatient consultations and with Emergency Room services available 24 hours every day with one health officer on duty, 3 nurses and one surgeon and one internist on call.
The Emergency Rooms are part of the Outpatient Department and provide 24 hours emergency consultation. Every patient accessing it undergoes a triage system to assess the severity, before being admitted to the Unit. In 2016 a total of 9,845 patients were attended in the Emergency Rooms.
The OPD services, along with the routine clinical services, also include chronic clinics for chronic conditions (TB, diabetes,hypertension, HIV AIDS, cardiac problems, liver diseases, and chronic renal failure). In addition a Psychiatric Unit, Eye Clinic, ENT and Dental Services are available.
Under TB unit, patients who are exposed to Tuberclosis disease will be given DOT (Direct Observation Tretment). So basically when a patient is dignosed with TB under any of the OPD examination room they are transferred to the TB clinic and follow DOT.
