The department of Nursing Service at PSG Hospitals is the biggest and plays a vital role in enabling “Competent, Compassionate, Knowledgeable and professional” health care delivery to all. The total staff strength is over 850; and many are involved in various committees and departments of the hospital. The nursing service department continually educates and trains the nurses; thereby enabling them to provide “quality care” to individuals of all ages, with an aim to promote health and prevent illness; to restore health and alleviate suffering.
In recent times; the Nursing profession has seen significant change; so there is always a need to keep pace with the challenges put forth to the healthcare industry. At PSG, the nurses are trained to not only execute the directions of a doctor; but also use theory and research based knowledge to provide direct and indirect care to the individuals and families.
The Nurses at PSG play a fundamental role in fulfilling the Hospital’s mission which is “To Provide Scientific, Ethical and Quality Health Care”.
Nursing profession recalls the name of Florence Nightingale and it’s indeed one of the noblest professions in the world. “Nursing” is both mentally and physically challenging; as nurses are often exposed to a lot of health risks and infectious diseases; and also demands long tiresome hours of work which integrate both ability and sympathetic understanding of the patient’s needs. Nurses comprise the largest vital component of the total health organization and are the primary providers of “patient care”. The Nursing Department of PSG Hospitals comprise of over 850 qualified nurses; keeping the nurse to patient ratio in the critical care sites (1:1), and in the other departments (1:5). Nursing duties are diverse and cover a wide range of functions and responsibilities; so we ensure that nurses are placed in the right area of work depending on the qualification, experience and work environment demands. Nursing is a combination of both science and art; science being the application of knowledge and technical aspects of nursing practices and art being to establish a caring and concerned relationship with the patients in a compassionate way.
Keeping this in mind the main aim of our department is to prepare the nurses with core knowledge; competence, ability and commitment, thus enabling our nurses to have a better insight to working in a professional and ethical manner.
Nevertheless a nurse is a divine light that can make other’s lives shine brighter through their noble service. I conclude by stating in very simple words that nursing is a work of both the heart and soul; and that the nurses are the “backbone” of PSG Hospitals.
The Nursing service of PSG Hospitals supports the mission of PSG & Sons Charitable Trust by providing high quality nursing care with commitment to nursing practice, education and research.
The Nursing service at PSG Hospitals will be recognized for its excellence in nursing care with commitment to patient’s values, holistic health and safety and nursing service will incorporate advances in Nursing sciences promoting an evidence based practice.
