The living dead
From 2007 SAPNA has been an important part of the continuum of care at the AIIMS Trauma Centre. The Social Services Counter designated for our organization is indicative of the importance of the non-clinical services provided by us. In 2019-20 more than a hundred trauma victims, most of them unidentified, were within our orbit of care. This included ambulatory services and long-term palliative-care of 28 patients-6 of whom were comatose- in our hospices at Noida and Alwar. Stringent guidelines and protocols of trauma-care are in place at both these centres.
SAPNA’s Hospices at Alwar and Noida
The hospices follow essential clinical and non-clinical algorithms. Our paramedics are trained to handle airway management, intravenous infusion of fluids or blood, and cases of respiratory distress. We have also engaged clinicians, a lab-technologist, psychotherapist and nurse. Our hospice at Noida took off in 2017. Our hospice at the Vijay Mandir Palace in Alwar has been operational from 2007. Together, they have housed more than 100 survivors of trauma and other serious disabilities, many of whom are homeless or are anonymous due to memory loss.
