We encourage our patients to maintain a note book where one enlists all the queries round the clock, it helps us to orient them with what to expect next. We highly recommend counseling process as it is utmost important for us to understand our patient in all aspects in order to reap positive health indicators.
Good hygiene or cleanliness is a basic requirement for good health. The importance becomes much greater in a cancer hospital setting, where patients are more vulnerable to infections than other counterparts. We, at NCI, realize the fact that though hospital helps people recover their health, it can become a potential source of spread of infection if people concerned are not vigilant enough. NCI provides completely sanitized premises with special attention to patient touch-points. We believe in and .support “Swachcha Bharat Abhiyan” run by state & central government. The mission is aimed to accelerate the efforts to achieve universal sanitation coverage and to put focus on sanitation, as. a fitting tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150 th Birth Anniversary. To acknowledge the cause, Gandhi Jayanti – 2 nd October is observed as “Swachchhata Diwas” at NCI.
