Our Outpatient department operates 24 hours. Patients are received at the registration desk where they pay a small fee for service. They are then directed to the nurse in the triaging area. The nurse while triaging must be alert to identify the very sick patients and direct them to be seen by the clinicians immediately. In the clinical rooms, history is obtained from the patients or their relatives. This is followed by a thorough physical examination and evaluation of the patients that aids in making a diagnosis. Additional laboratory tests or radiological examinations may be required to make a diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is made, the clinician prescribes treatment and discharges the patient through pharmacy, or the patient is admitted for further care and treatment.
