Former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam has inaugurated the burns ward at the Indus Westside Hospital in Bangalore. The new facility at the hospital includes a dedicated burns ward ICU and true isolation ward.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Kalam said most treatment regimens for burns are instituted almost immediately, "Hospital's working environment has to be transformed using an integrated approach that addresses the mind, body, and spirit. A Hospital should not only provide treatment to patients but also promote healing," he stressed.
