Our hospital has a 24 x 7 ‘on duty’ model Emergency Services department operated in accordance with international best practice guidelines set by the American College of Emergency and the Australian College of Emergency. In line with these best practice guidelines, we have formulated our clinical protocols and training programs in emergency medicine for chest pain, heart attack, stroke and trauma clinical pathways. We are focused on achieving ‘golden time standards’ for treatment and interventions. This ensures that patients receive appropriate intervention treatment within a specified period as benchmarked in developed countries. Examples of these self imposed KPI’s are : Triage to CT Head for Cerebral bleed Ambulance response time from end of call Triage to Ballon Angio We mandate that all clinical staffs in our Emergency Department complete formal training through a web-based proprietary emergency medicine training program at three levels (basic, intermediate and advanced life support skills) to be completed over an 18 to 24 months period. All Medical Officers based in the Emergency Department are American Heart Association ( AHA ) accredited in Advanced Cardiac Life Support ( ACLS ). The Clinical Director and Head of Emergency Department, Dr Htun Htun Zaw is the First AHA, BLS and ACLS Instructor to be accredited here in Yangon and will conduct regular courses to ensure all our Medical Officers and Acute Area Registered Nurses become accredited in BLS and ACLS. Our fleet of 3 fully equipped Ambulances operate 24×7 with a call out team consisting of an BLS/ACLS accredited Medical Officer and RN with ambulance Driver trained in CPR and accident site management. On board equipment includes a portable ventilator, Automated External Defibrillator, Oxygen, Complete Suctioning System and comprehensive Medical Supplies to deliver a true “hospital on wheels” offering quick initial intervention, the ability to safely stabilize at the scene and retrieve back to base.
All patients are Triaged at our Triage counter prior to entry into the Emergency Department. The Triage Nurse will take a brief history on the reason for presentation, record baseline vital signs and transfer the patient to the appropriate area for commencement of treatment.
Our Triage Classifications are based on the Internationally recognized colour coding of Red – Life Threatening, Immediate Treatment, Yellow – Urgent, Treatment within 15 minutes and Green – Non Urgent.
The PHSH Emergency Department Medical and Nursing Staff deliver expert treatment for a comprehensive spectrum of Life Threatening, Trauma, Urgent and Non Urgent presentations. These include :
