Prevention is Better than Cure: Awareness Raised on World No Tobacco Day

Imagine that you and your wife are drinking your morning tea. Just as you are going to drink the first sip, you take a bottle from your pocket and put a few drops into yours and your wife’s tea. It’s written CYANIDE on the bottle. That wouldn’t happen; would it? No one in their right senses would do something like this right?

Well not really. People all over the world, do this daily. But instead of cyanide, it’s cigarette and tobacco products. Each time anyone smokes a puff of cigarette, he’s smoking away 5 minutes of his life. Out of 100 people who die from lung cancer, more than 90 will be smokers. Mothers who smoke are expecting to have deformed children. But worse of all, children of parents who smoke are inhaling 2nd hand smoke which can cause exactly the same complications as a smoker!

When a young smoker comes with a heart attack, we are prepared to treat him. When a chronic smoker comes with emphysema, we will give chest therapy to help him breathe. When a patient with terminal lung cancer comes to us, we will offer them palliative care. As a Hospital with concern for quality treatment and compassionate care, we will do all that.

Yet as ‘upstreamist’ – people who try to prevent sickness, World No Tobacco Day was a perfect opportunity for us to get this message out – prevention is better than cure.

So we gathered our nurses and our staff and decided to reach out to the community with this message. Here are some pictures …

Message was given about the side effects of tobacco.

Unveiling our Logo

Some of our more observant readers noticed something new on the banner in the background of the image in our last blog post – our logo.

We’ve been silently working on the logo for over 6 months now so we are excited to show you the results.

Let us explain the idea – we began with a shield and the cross, something simple yet timeless with a university model in mind.

However, rather than using a traditional cross, we decided to use a “Holding Cross.” A Holding Cross is meant to be held in our hands and therefore is not symmetrical or sharp. This kind of cross is meant to be held in our hands especially when we pray – how appropriate it is as a symbol to display the mission and vision of Believers Church Hospital!

At first glance this may look odd, but as you continue to look into it, we get a kind of feeling that someone is hanging on the cross, or that Jesus’ hands are stretched out to receive us.

Ensuring a Clean Environment and Preventing Infections

We took the first step towards delivering quality health care towards our guests when we held our first Continuous Nurse Education (CNE) Program on 22nd of March 2014. The session, which focused on Infection Prevention and Control covered topics such as hand hygiene, aseptic techniques, surgical site infection and imbibing a safe environment for patient care.

Dr. Vinoo Jacob, our senior surgeon gave the inaugural address.

Be A Germ Buster

BCH190314-1

Have you heard of a post operative patient getting a bad infection complicating the entire healing process? Or about a ICU admitted patient getting an infection from another patient in the Hospital? These are but 2 of the examples of what we would called “Hospital acquired infections.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1.4 million people worldwide each day of all hospital admissions result in infections that patients acquire during their stay while receiving treatment for other conditions, culminating in 1.7 million infections and 99,000 deaths each year as well as INR 1,707.43 – INR 2,012.33 billion in excess costs.

As you can see, precious lives are lost every year because of the spread of infections in hospitals which could have been prevented. We as your preferred Health care provider, are not prepared to let this happen to you in our Hospital. This reality motivated Believers Church Hospital to adopt infection control as the corner stone of rendering quality healthcare. As a first step to achieve zero tolerance to infections, we believe in equipping our hospital family by educating them to deliver the best possible care to our guests (patients).

Hence we are conducting our 1st CNE – continuous nursing educational program this Saturday.

Germs beware…here we come!
