Coimbatore Medical College: Free clothing store for inpatients


Coimbatore Medical College: Free clothing store for inpatients

Coimbatore: In a unique initiative, a city-based NGO has opened a store at the Coimbatore Medical College Hospital (CMCH) premises here to provide clothes free of cost to the inpatients.

There are nearly 2,500 inpatients in different wards at the hospital and Chandrans Yuva Foundation does not want the inpatients to wear colourful clothing only on the day of Deepavali, but on all other days, its director Sasikala said.

Noting that the foundation had already installed a sanitary napkin vending machine on the hospital premises, Sasikala said this was the second such cause initiating a free cloth store.

This would be a permanent store at the venue to take care of the inpatients, she said.

“CMCH had given the inpatient details, based on that we had purchased new clothes for women, men and kids.

We will check the admit card and other details of the inpatients, based on the similar process, we will continue giving the free clothes,” she said.

    I SEE PATIENTS WEARING SAME DRESS FOR WEEKS ( MONTHS) TOGETHER , IT STINKS LIKE ……. ACCORDING TO GOVERNMENT EXPENDITURE A PATIENT SHOULD GET FOOD WORTH RS 250 TO 300/ DAY. THEIR DRESS , BED SHEETS HAS TO BE CHANGED ON A DAILY BASIS . CLEANLINESS HYGIENE AND DIET AND NUTRITION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MEDICINES ( CHEMICALS). THE PURPOSE OF HOSPITALIZATION IS JUST NOT GIVE THEM COUPLE OF PILLS & PRICKS . IT IS TEACCH & TRIAN THE PATIENTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS HOW TO KEEP SORROUNDING SPICK & SPAN , THE IMPORTANCE OF CLEANLINESS HYGIENE AND DIET AND NUTRITION ( HEALTHY HABITS). CARE CONCERN ATTITUDE & BEHAVIOUR . UNFORTUNATELY OUR GOVERNMENT HOSPITALS HAVE BECOME MEETING POINTS, PICNIC SPOTS, DUMPING GROUNDS, PLACESS FOR EXPIRIMENTS, CENTRES OF EXPLIOTATION- SENDING PATIENTS FOR UNNECESSARY UNWANTED INVESTIGATIONS TO NEARBY LABORATORIES, SCANNING CENTRES, AND NURSING HOMES FOR CUTS AND COMMISSION. COMING TO HOSPITAL CLOTHING ,I THINK THERE IS NO BIG DEAL IN GIVING A DHOTHI & SHIRT , SARI , PANT , PAIJAMA WORTH 2 to 3 hundreds. They should be given pair Hawaii slippers, soap, tooth paste, & a towel and walking stick for all elderly patients. ( Make them use it ….. majority of Indian hate to use walking stick , they love to die by eating any number of chemical tablets / capsules, they enjoy taking painful pricks to their atrophic muscles , but avoid/ reluctant to use walking stick like their western counter parts)
