Patient Care from MGCH&RI

General Information

There are three ways to be admitted:

(1) Inpatient Admission and

(2) Day Care Admission

(3) Emergency/Casualty

If the doctors determine that the patient needs to be admitted for surgery or to receive care in the Inpatient unit, the patient can approach the Inpatient Registration Desk for assistance with the necessary formalities.

Based on factors such as diagnosis, eligibility, priority, and availability of rooms/beds, the patient will be allocated the appropriate accommodations. If there is no availability of rooms in the desired category, the staff will place the patient’s name on a waiting list and inform them once a room becomes available. We do provide beds in case of non-availability by upgrading the plan accepted in an emergency period.

For repeat admissions, you can request a room in the desired category by calling 0891-2878787 in advance for a specific day. The admissions staff will contact you by phone to provide information about the room’s availability.

The admission counter provides a list of charges for different room categories. To secure admission, the patient is required to deposit the appropriate amount based on their desired room type.

Your treating doctor refers to the help desk to provide an average estimate of the hospitalization cost. They will explain the approximate expenses you may incur during your stay. However, the actual treatment requirements may vary depending on the patient’s clinical condition. Unforeseen circumstances may arise, leading to changes in the treatment estimate.

To stay informed about your expenses at any given point, you can request a provisional bill from the Ward Secretary or Billing Department. If you have any questions or need clarification regarding your expenditures or an estimate for further treatment, you can discuss it with your doctor.

In an emergency, there is an immediate team of response with two beds based on doctor availability and process.
