The medical sector is one of the most prolific as well as complicated sector of any economy. This is purely based on the fact that as we advance in knowledge, more diseases are discovered that threaten our health. This means that while older medical facilities only had a few rooms the modern facilities have more than 10 different units all of which aim at alleviating pain and reducing human suffering.
Below are some of the facilities that you will find in a typical hospital:
1. The emergency room
This is the most common important and well known part of a hospital. Mainly because it’s the entry point and also because it is well documented and represented in the many medical dramas we know.
The emergency room is important for urgent care of a patient. It has both medical and paramedical professionals who serve to ensure that the ABCs of a patient in critical condition are stabilized before they get to see a doctor.
2. Doctors office
The doctor’s office provides services to patients who are stable. The doctor takes the patient’s history, makes a diagnosis or requests a lab test. It is also the place for follow ups, catheterizations and routine check-ups. The doctor may be a specialist or a general practitioner.
