Meenakshi Mission Hospital in Madurai becomes India's Safest Hospital
offering Ultra Protection against Covid-19 Infection
Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Centre in Madurai have launched the ‘Six-stage ultra-safety program’ that makes optimal use of AI and robotics for a contactless checkup, treatment, and sterilization.
The objective of the ‘Six-Stage Ultra Safety Program’ is to ensure contactless detection of potential carriers of the Covid-19 virus, 100% sterilization of indoors, and minimal physical contact while providing healthcare services. This program is aimed at creating redundant layers of protection against Covid-19 infection so that the in-patients and outpatients who need ongoing treatment for various other ailments can avail it, and our doctors, paramedical and administrative staff can render the necessary healthcare services without any fear of Covid-19 infection.
The six stages of safety are:
The first stage:
The first stage of protection features Smart Security. It deploys security personnel at the entrance of the hospital to detect potential carriers of the virus. They wear smart infrared AI helmets to check the temperature of the visitors remotely.
The second stage:
The second stage of protection features the Smart Fever Clinic that functions at the reception area of the hospital. Armed with thermal infrared guns, the hospital staffs check the temperature of the visitors and provide identity tags to each visitor after ensuring that they have sanitized their hands and worn N-95 masks.
The third stage:
The third stage of protection features Smart Thermal Surveillance Cameras that continuously and remotely checks the temperature of everyone on the premises, round the clock.
The fourth stage:
The fourth stage of protection features advanced Covid-19 Testing Equipment using which Corona Virus testing is done to patients and visitors using three different advanced technologies namely, Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR), True Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (Tru NAAT), and Cartridge Based Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (CB NAAT).
The fifth stage:
The fifth stage of protection deploys robots that are on the move 24X7 spraying disinfectant and sterilizing every corner of the hospital to ensure that frequently touched surfaces are sanitized at all times.
The sixth stage:
The sixth and final stage of protection features service robots that carry food and medicines to the patients right to their rooms.
Apart from this, currently, Meenakshi Mission Hospital is also the only hospital in the country to produce N-95 masks on its own.
The ‘Six-Stage Ultra Safety Program’ at Meenakshi Mission is thus setting a standard in the country in ensuring continuity of healthcare services during the Covid-19 pandemic in a stress-free and smart environment.
