ICU Care Box Refill: TUTH ICU

March 03, 2016. To improve timely and equitable access to lifesaving treatments, NCCDF is pioneering the ICU Care Box. This box is a collection of essential medical equipment and supplies located within the ICU for rapid access in an emergency situation. Patients will be asked to replenish the supplies after the emergency has passed. For those unable to afford replenishment, the supplies will be a donation for their care.

Today, we refilled the Care Box at TUTH ICU. NCCDF is committed in supporting and improving the intensive care in Nepal.

Thank you to ‘Friends of NCCDF’ for your continuous support.

ICU Care Box Donations: Pyuthan District Hospital

Feb 11, 2016. Every year patients needlessly lose their lives in an ICU in Nepal just because they cannot afford to buy essential drugs and medical equipment required for their treatment. To compound matters, in an emergency situation, health care workers will order the required equipment and medications,but then the patient’s family must leave the ICU to retrieve, pay for, and return with the supplies to ICU which costs precious minutes in a life and death situation.

World Sepsis Day 2015

Sept 13, 2015. World Sepsis Day 2015 is being celebrated in Nepal throughout the week with information sessions conducted today and planned further at a total of 10 medical centers in Kathmandu. Hospital acquired infections are very common in Nepal and a number of fatalities are caused by these infections. This World Sepsis Day our theme is to focus on simple thing, Hand Hygiene for infection control and providing insight among healthcare professionals about Sepsis.

Today started early with informative session at Kathmandu Medical College Teaching Hospital to ICU professionals. Later the information outlet was setup at one of the biggest tertiary healthcare center, Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital. Medical professionals at the desk gave insights about this deadly disease to visiting general public, medical fresher’s and allied healthcare professionals. Trips around the OPD were made providing information to the general public and healthcare professionals distributing hand hygiene posters, sepsis leaflets and hand washing leaflets. The general public were enthusiastic to learn about this life threatening disease shocked at the same time as to why they have not heard much about it. Informative sessions were conducted at Om Hospital and Research Center and Patan Hospital ICU today as well. Few more days and few more information sessions to conduct.

Until and unless we inform and educate our medical professionals about this deadly disease, we won’t be able save lives which otherwise could be saved.

We recognize that a minor barrier to preventing sepsis lies in the fact that sepsis is largely unknown to public, and poorly understood by professionals. Too many people develop sepsis and too few survive. Let’s change this.
