GNRC launches fleet of advanced ambulances

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 12 � The GNRC today launched a fleet of state-of-the-art ambulances, to complete GNRC�s emergency services portfolio.

Following the flag-off of the fleet, Dr NC Borah, chairman-cum-managing director, GNRC Hospitals, told the media that the fleet of hundred ambulances would aim to provide basic life support instantly after receiving a call for an ambulance and will have on board a paramedic and a pilot � both trained in basic life support and safe medical evacuation procedures.

�To address the pressing need for a solution to the rising number of emergency medical situations in the region, such as stroke, heart attacks and road accidents, we have been building an emergency services portfolio that overcomes several access barriers � financial, awareness-related issues and, now, transportation,� he said.

Dr Borah explained that the integration of ambulance fleet to GNRC�s 24-hour free emergency service made GNRC the only total emergency service provider in India.

�The �golden hour� � the first 60 minutes after the occurrence of an emergency medical condition � is the window of time in which the difference between life and death or disability for a patient must be established through medical intervention. We, at the GNRC, aim to enable the emergency patients to avail this chance through our ambulance services,� he added.

Free emergency services for the first 24 hours provided by the GNRC to all patients include waiver of doctor�s consultation fee, bed charges, charges for essential investigations, medicines and life support.
