Patients undergoing treatment for burn injuries at State-run Gandhi Hospital can now recover better with the installation of air-conditioners in the burns ward. Close to five air-conditioners, installed at a cost of Rs 2.5 lakh were inaugurated in the burns ward on Friday.

Gandhi Hospital Superintendent P Shravan Kumar said due to the heavy load of patients, there was a need to have an exclusive plastic surgery unit attached to existing burns ward.

“We have sent a detailed proposal for a plastic surgery unit to the State government. We receive many burn cases from districts and there is a need to have a plastic surgery unit near burns

ward,” Dr Shravan Kumar said, after inaugurating the air-conditioners.

The initiative to procure air-conditioners was taken up by Helping Hand Foundation (HHF), a non-profit organisation. According to founder of HHF, Mujtaba Hasan Askari, the funds to procure the air-conditioners were raised through crowd funding.According to Head of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, A Subodh Kumar, air-conditioners facilitate healing of the patients better. The members of HHF, meanwhile, said there was also a need for proper rehabilitation and support for burn patients, who are often stigmatised and find it difficult to get jobs to earn a living.
