Ambulance Service

 

Round the clock Ambulance Service  is provided  by the University in ‘Mohanpur’ campus for about 1500 borders of UG/PG/Ph D students and staffs accommodates in different quarters/hostels of the University premise. The ambulance service is under the ascendancy of the ‘Medical Officer’ of the University health centre.

Health Centre: An Overview

 

The inception of the health centre of BCKV, Mohanpur was made in 1974. The present medical unit was initially housed on the ground floor of the Administrative Building. It was strongly felt that the medical unit needs some isolation and hygienic environment; separated from the Administrative Building and shifted to newly constructed Health Centre in  2001.the centre later  re-entitled as “Professor S.B. Chottopadhyay Memorial Health Centre” in 2012.

This health centre constitutes free medical advices, free checkups, investigations and physiotherapies especially for students of this University along with medicine. Apart  from students, BCKV staffs and their family members are also benefitted by the above medical services at a very nominal charge.

Initially, with the emergence of the health centre in BCKV, Dr J.C. Mukherjee,Dr Ms Manju Chowdhury and Dr N Nath were the in charge and rendered their medical expertise.

In due course of time, Dr A K Roy took over the charge of health centre after  the retirement of Dr J C Mukherjee. Gradually with the retirement of Dr Nath in 2001 and Dr Ms Manju Chowdhury in 2002. The appointment of medical officers were made on contractual basis. But this process could not yield fruitful and effective solutions to the problems that were arising. Eventually, Dr. Kaushik Chatterjee who initially served on contractual basis, joined as the Assistant Medical officer in 2008.

In 2012, Dr. A.K. Roy retired from the services and since then no permanent recruitment of Medical Officer was made till date. Dr. Mrs. Urmila Chattopadhyaya (Das) was appointed as a Medical Officer (Contractual basis) on June 2014 and she is carried her services till December 2016. Dr. Mrs. Monikankana Roy was appointed as a Lady Medical Officer (Contractual basis) in February 2017 and she is continuing her services till date.  It needs to be mentioned that Physiotherapy Department has been started here in 2012 which is run by the physiotherapist, Dr. Anupam Das(on contractual basis), as it has been noted that the demand for physiotherapy became ever pressing from the students and staff. 

Most importantly ,the smooth running of the health centre necessitates adequate number of CLINICIANS and Para Clinical staffs which was lagging behind.

It is needless to say that after retirement of both Pharmacists in December 2007 and January 2008  we are still maintaining the necessary formalities of drug dispensing through pharmacist on contractual basis who continued for a brief period and opts out for better option,reappointment made thereafter and the same process continued.

To accommodate various facilities under one roof we have constructed adjacent building consisting of sufficient infrastructure for performing emergency minor surgical intervention maintaining sterility as well as isolated cabins separately for male and female students suffering from infectious and /or quarantined diseases so that academic activities can not hamper. 

In view of upgradations of our existing 'Health Unit', we have sought for expert opinion from medical expert of adjoining referral hospital within our vicinity. After thorough interaction with them various lacunae pertaining to staff requirement and lack of medical instrument were  out which need to be addressed. It is to further mention that a small parallel unit is also functioning in the Directorate of Research Complex Building, Kalyani, where the patients are nurtured & rendered with medicines as per the advice of the doctor who has been attending that unit. Dr. Mrs. Monikankana Roy visits the Unit once a week to render medical advices.

Therefore, the intention with which the health centre was framed is eventually on the way of improvement of its conditions and awaiting further improvisations to be made.
