Other than this we have acute renal failure secondary to dehydration and cerebral malaria who have undergone emergency heamodialysis therapy here.

In the wards other than the above mentioned cases we also admit patients with acute diarrhoea disease, enteric fever, hepatitis, uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes, nephrotic syndrome, bronchopneumonia, to name a few. This hospital also has a Tuberculosis ward where TB patients are admitted for supervised care till they are able to take care of themselves and remain compliant as well. It's bed occupancy is 60-70% and  and we have patients who come from a 200 km radius. Considering we are located in a very rural area most of our patients often need charity especially the tribal patients.  Dr (Ms) Prafulla Parmanth is currently the head of the department and has been taking care of the department for the last 5 years now. They are helped by junior doctors who are rotating through the departments to collect experience and expertise under the watchful eyes of the senior doctors.
