Hospital courtyard paved

[singlepic id=404 w= h= float=none]

The hospital courtyard needed to be paved and resurfaced. We are very grateful to the Nagar Panchayat, and the Municipal Committee Manali for doing this for us at their expense for the public areas in the hospital. We appreciate their participation with us in the care of patients here and thank them for this great service to us and the people of Manali. Now the wheelchairs and stretchers do not need to bump their way into the emergency room but can be wheeled smoothly in. We thank our Honorable MLA Shri Govind Thakurji, Shri Roopu Negi, and Srhi Chaman Lal for this.

New generator plans

Our generator set is now about fifteen years old and was in need of replacement. By a very sure and specific hand of God, we have been provided the means to procure a new set and servo stabiliser. Using an intricate network of faithful people, God engineered this for us, and we have now taken the first step of moving our present generator out to a temporary shed, and reconstructing our present generator housing to accomodate the new generator when it arrives. This has been a mosaic of miracles. We thank God and all the dear ones who have made this a reality.

Nurses day

Nurses day (May 12th) went off very well, with the nurses conducting a health talk on Hypertension for the patients, and distributing milk and eggs in the ward. They had a jumble sale of items to raise funds for the poor patients fund and also had food stalls selling siddu and chole bature. The food disappeared very quickly and the rain did not dampen the spirits. We are very proud of our nurses.

Ct scanner saves life in Manali

For years we have been looking forward to this day, when the ct scanner came into its own and saved life here in Manali. A young male was brought with a motor vehicle accident, unconscious and unstable. He  underwent resuscitation, was stabilised, blunt trauma abdomen excluded, and went on to have a ct scan head. This showed a depressed skull fracture and blood collected in the brain causing some compression. He underwent a decompression craniotomy, elevation of the depressed fragment and evacuation of the hematoma, was ventilated postoperatively and was transferred by ventilated ambulance to safety in Chandigarh.

This is just one paragraph of events, but has been a decade of anticipation and work, together with the benovelence of so many well wishers and the smooth functioning of the Manali team which has made the above paragraph so non descript. It is with thankfulness and pride that we report this event in Manali, the citizens of whom can now look forward to this standard of care in this remote hill town.

JSSK is live in LWH

The JSSK (Janani Shishu Suraksha Karyakram) or Mother and Child program of the government through the state NRHM is now live in LWH Manali. Under this program, every pregnant mother who delivers and every child under one year of age is extended some monetary benefit by the government, a benefit which now our hospital is empaneled to disburse. This will reduce the costs of delivery in our hospital and also reduce the costs of care for infants admitted to the hospital. We are grateful to Dr. Bishan Shashni, BMO Naggar, and the district health authorities for making this program a reality in our hospital.

Carols with the Willingdon wallas

The Willingdon Wallas got everyone around a campfire to sing carols, with dinner as their finale item. A good time was had by all, and it was fun to sing around the fire. A simple but tasty dinner was prepared by the mess now being run by a mess committee, which has been catering for many functions in the recent days.

Cricket match

The first Daystar School versus Lady Willingdon Hospital cricket match was a resounding success. The Daystar School won the Dr. M.P. Alexander rolling trophy by winning the best of three matches. Their side demonstrated good teamwork and had seasoned and experienced players. The Lady Willingdon Hospital staff however put up an excellent fight and after the first ten overs, had the Daystar school staff having to fight hard to keep ahead. The staff on both sides played very well and there was much cheering that accompanied the match from the sidelines. Scintillating commentary and good natured ribaldry from both sides continued from the commentators box right through the match. A good time was had by all, and every one left saying.. “Till next year, when we see you on the pitch”.

The Dr. M.P. Alexander rolling trophy was established by the Daystar School in memory of Philip’s father, who spent his life here being friends with one and all, which was  the focus of the match, to foster good relationships between all the staff of the Society, both in the school and the hospital.
