Emergency medicine

Lazarus Hospital’s Accident & Emergency Department operates around the clock and is supported by 12 special beds, a dedicated operation theatre and a state-of-the-art Ambulance Service.The Accident & Emergency Department of Lazarus Hospital, Hyderabad provides initial treatment to patients with a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries, some of which may be life threatening and requiring immediate attention.

             Upon arrival in the A&E, our patients undergo a brief triage to help determine the nature and severity of their illness. A physician then sees individuals with serious illnesses more rapidly than those with less severe symptoms or injuries. After initial assessment and treatment, patients are either admitted to the hospital or discharged. The staff in emergency departments not only includes doctors and nurses with specialized training in emergency medicine but in house emergency medical technicians, radiology technicians, emergency responders, ambulance paramedics and other support staff who all work as a team to treat emergency cases.

Emergency situations include, but are not limited to, the following symptoms:

      Chest pain
      Uncontrolled bleeding
      Sudden or severe pain
      Coughing or vomiting blood
      Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath
      Sudden dizziness, weakness, or change in vision
      Severe or persistent vomiting or diarrhea
      Change in mental status (e.g., confusion, difficulty arousing)
