Jessica Capshaw quoted that maternal health remains a staggering challenge, particularly in the developing world. Globally, a woman dies from complications in childbirth every minute. While Marie Mongan stated that my dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable, and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby. Are you anticipating a newborn in your family? Then you must be worried about ensuring best possible care to your daughter/ sister/wife. You will surely expect that your obstetrician should be attending your daughter/ sister/wife as and when labor pains start? If the obstetrician is on holiday? What will you do? It is prudent to check for places which have group of Obstetricians who provide complete round the clock cover. You may not foresee, but if a complication does occur; does the maternity home have critical care backup, blood storage unit facility, good operation theatre, attached neonatal Care & Premature baby Unit, all diagnostics, full time Anesthetists & Physician services, in house round the clock pharmacy, physiotherapy and dietician services? Check on these heads before you enroll your daughter/ sister/wife for antenatal checkup in any maternity home.
Obstetrics is the field of study concentrated on pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. As a medical specialty, obstetrics is combined with gynecology under the discipline known as obstetrics and gynecology. An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in the care of women during pregnancy, labor and after birth. One can comprehend the panic when labor pains really start. Immediate attention by a doctor is what one really wants. One also expects the hospital should have all backup if any complications occur. OCHRI Obstetrics and Gynecology Department provides a full range of OB/Gyn services to meet the health needs of women throughout their lives. OB/GYN are the two surgical–medical specialties dealing with the female reproductive organs in their pregnant and non-pregnant state. OCHRI Obstetrics and Gynecology Department provides general obstetric and gynecologic care, high-risk obstetrics, pap smears, menopause treatment, well woman clinic and many other services.
Orange City Hospital & Research Institute boasts of a dedicated Maternal & Child health division under insignia of Kalyani Maternity Home.

The moment a child is born, a mother is also born. It is the most powerful creation to have a life growing inside a woman. I do consider that mothers are gifts from God. In fact, motherhood is the highest & holiest service given to mankind. Hence, I desired that a dedicated space should be created in OCHRI in memory of my mother Smt. Kalyanikutty Amma for ensuring safe motherhood. I am happy with the commendable services being offered to would be mothers by OCHRI Maternal & Child Health team led by Dr.Bindu Menon and Dr.Kuldeep Sukhadeve. This was stated by Udaybhaskar Nair, Chairman, Orange City Hospital & Research Institute.
Dr.Sindhu Bhute, Senior Consultant, OCHRI stated that addressing maternal health means ensuring that all women receive the care they need to be safe and healthy throughout pregnancy and childbirth. Every minute of every day, somewhere in the world and most often in a developing country, a woman dies from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth. Nearly all maternal deaths occur in the developing world--making maternal mortality the health statistic with the largest disparity between developed and developing countries. New Born babies are also under going this terrible fate.
Dr.Bindu Menon, Consultant Incharge, OCHRI added that for every woman who dies, 30 to 50 women suffer injury, infection, or disease. Pregnancy-related complications are among the leading causes of death and disability for women age 15-49 in developing countries. When a mother dies, children lose their primary caregiver, communities are denied her paid and unpaid labor, and countries forego her contributions to economic and social development. A woman's death is more than a personal tragedy--it represents an enormous cost to her nation, her community, and her family. Any social and economic investment that has been made in her life is lost. Her family loses her love, her nurturing, and her productivity inside and outside the home. Research has shown that small and affordable measures can significantly reduce the health risks that women face when they become pregnant. Most maternal deaths could be prevented if women had access to appropriate health care during pregnancy, childbirth, and immediately afterwards. Safe motherhood means ensuring that all women receive the care they need to be safe and healthy throughout pregnancy and childbirth.
Dr.Kuldeep Sukhadeve, Consultant Incharge, Pediatrics & Neonatal Care division mentioned that each year, approximately 4 million newborn infants die during the first month of life, and an additional 4 million are stillborn- most of these deaths are due to infection, asphyxia and birth injuries, and complications of premature birth. Low birth weight contributes to newborn death in about 40-80% of cases. Nearly all of these newborn deaths occur in developing countries, and most of these deaths can be prevented if good-quality is available. With the rising survival rate of premature babies, it becomes increasingly important for mothers to consider all options. Mothers can also help to ensure that their newborns are by banking their cord blood, which contains a rich source of stem cells. Newborn health and survival are closely linked to the health of the mother before and during pregnancy, as well as during labor, childbirth, and the postpartum period. OCHRI Pediatrics & Neonatal Care unit not only caters to babies from OCHRI but also other hospitals and maternity homes from all over Central India that refer needy babies for quality critical care support.
Dr.Nitu Hedao, Gynecologist, OCHRI said that there are many emergencies noticed in Obstetrics. The main emergencies include Ectopic pregnancy, Pre-eclampsia ,Placental abruption, Fetal distress, Shoulder dystocia, Uterine rupture, Prolapsed cord ,Obstetrical hemorrhage & Puerperal sepsis . Dr.Madhuri Likhitkar, Senior Medical Officer Incharge, Obstetrics & Gynecology division stated that OCHRI Obstetrics division caters to referred cases from all over central India, part of Madhya Pradesh and Chattishgarh for its recognition as Maternity Hospital with attached exemplary tertiary care services. Regular morning and evening OBGY OPD along with Pediatrics & Neonatal OPD is a unique feature here so that after delivery mothers can get their checkups done along with follow up of their babies and immunizations in one OPD complex only. One can call on Dr.Bindu Menon, Consultant Incharge, Obstetrics & Gynecology Division, in OCHRI morning OPD from 10 am to 3 pm or Dr.Nitu Hedao in evening OPD from 6-8pm for obtaining further related details of services.
The point is to birth with LOVE and CONFIDENCE, without FEAR, without unnecessary INTERVENTION, and with a supportive team who shares your birth vision. The wonderful side-effect of this type of gentle, mother-centered, empowered birth is more pleasure and less pain.

A Brain storming session on health status of Maharashtra- Vision 2025 was organized by Nagpur Regional branch of Yashwantrao Chavan Pratishtan in Rashtrabhasha Sankul, Shankar Nagar Nagpur yesterday to commemorate 75th birthday of Shri. Sharad Pawar. Renowned speakers and thinkers of Maharashtra presented their view on various topics.
Dr. Shyam Ashtekar, Ex-Director- Health Division Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University( Nashik), Dr. Ved Prakash Mishra, Chairman - Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (Karad), Shri Uday Bhaskar Nair, Chairman- Orange City Hospital & Research Institute (Nagpur), Dr. Subhash Salunkhe, Senior Advisor-Public Health Foundation India( Pune), Dr. Satish Gogulwar, Founder- ‘Amhi Amchya Arogyasathi’ (Gadchiroli) , Dr Anant Phadke, Co-Coordinator- People Health Movement( Pune), Dr. Mahesh Zagade, IAS, Metropolitan Commissioner & CEO- Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (Pune)spoke on various topics.
At the outset Shri. Girish Gandhi welcomed the speakers and gathering while Shri. Sharad Kale introduced the speakers. Professor Suresh Dwadashiwar, Senior Journalist, Littérateur and Thinker inaugurated the program.
Speaking on “The Private Health Sector & PPP model”; Shri.Udaybhaskar Nair, Chairman, Orange City Hospital & Research Institute highlighted the pros and cons of PPP model in health care. An extensively well researched topic, his lecture was immensely appreciated. In the absence of a robust state-funded health infrastructure providing free care, citizens have no option but to seek out private facilities. Moreover, one episode of hospitalization is estimated to account for 58% of per capita annual expenditure, pushing 2.2% of the population below the poverty line. Still, 80% of households prefer to use private sector treatment in India for minor illnesses, and 75% of households prefer to go to the private sector for major illnesses. There is no reward for hard working quality doctors in government setups, then why will they stick there? He lamented. Wherein government institutions were once looked upon as a centre where newer modalities, rare and difficult management options could be tried and tested; this concept has completely eloped the system due to dearth of honestly involved and interested individuals. He quoted WHO reform strategies including (I) alternative financing (user-fees, health insurance, community financing, private sector investment); (ii) institutional management (autonomy to hospitals, monitoring and management by local government agencies, contracting); (iii) public sector reforms (civil service reforms, capacity building, productivity improvement); and (iv) collaboration with the private sector (public/private partnerships, joint ventures). Lastly he added that a government that fails to deliver quality social services due to lack of basic administrative capacity would not be able to contract either clinical or non-clinical services. The first step must be to improve basic administrative systems.
The gathering was well attended by all concerned Nagpurians. Shri Ajay Patil, Dr. Pramod Munghate, Dr. Pankaj Bhoyar, Dr. Komal Thakre, Shri. Ramesh Borkute, Shri. Sameer Saraf and all other worked hard for the success of this novel deliberation.

While complimenting Care hospitals led by Dr.Varun Bhargava on pursuing this annual conclave dedicated to Quality in health care on regular basis under committed stewardship of Shri.Ravi Mannadiyar , he stated that if quality improvement is going to work in healthcare, Health care Organizations( HCO’s) have to engage clinicians. Clinicians are the frontline workers who understand and own the processes of care. Moreover he highlighted that Sentiment analysis is a new scientific approach to comment interpretation that is starting to be applied in health care to gain deeper insights into what patients are saying. In general, it is about the people—nurses, doctors, and staff. Patients consistently rank interaction with the health care staff as paramount in how they evaluate their health care experience, either positively or negatively. It is more specifically about communication and explanation from the clinical and non-clinical staff. He added that management of healthcare organizations can deal with challenges of controlling costs, reducing waste and implementing a sustainability strategy by aligning organizational processes with external pressure and putting quality high on the agenda by organizing care pathways based on evidence of quality and safety interventions.

A novel endeavor on rising attrition rate and crunch of trained and qualified staff in health care sector was recently undertaken by Dr.Dhananjay Ookalkar. He invited all major hospital representatives of Nagpur for a related discussion. Dr. V. L. Gupta, Dr. Anup Marar, Dr. Kamal Bhutada, Dr. Rajan Barokar and Dr. Vasant Khalatkar addressed this round table conclave of all renowned hospital of Nagpur.
Dr.Anup Marar, Director( Administration), Orange City Hospital & Research Institute highlighted that management of hospitals have to gear up to the new Human Resources changes noticed in all industries. He stated that following 6 new HR Trends have to be considered by the employers:
1. Time over Money - Employees today seek more personal time versus financial compensation.
2. Professional versus Personal Role - Employees want to be active both at work and at home, not choosing between the two.
3. Rising Super-class of Employees - As more employees opt for less stressful work/more personal time, a subgroup of employees, often characterized as more driven, are carrying the load of travel, relocation, and long hours.
4. Integration of Home and Work - Employers are increasingly offering services to reduce the stress of managing professional and personal lives. These services include child and elder care, dry cleaning, housecleaning, on-site full service banking etc.
5. Gen X Entrepreneurs - Employees in their twenties and thirties view the workplace differently, preferring greater autonomy and less bureaucracy. They are "loyal" to the work and not to the employer.
6. Collaborative Management - Traditional models of administrative structures are also in flux with flattening of hierarchies and increased team structures. People who can create environments of teamwork and creativity are the definition of good managers. No longer is top down control seen as desirable.
He added that retention of staff begins with how the organization does or does not value the staff. Human resources can arguably make or break an institution's image and competitive edge. Organizations that maintain a market advantage will be those who not only remain competitive from a cost structure, but who also attract and retain talent. The staff of today needs autonomy, salaries, schedules, credibility and professional respect. They now look for participatory management, enhanced communication and thus adequate staffing, Effective administrative structure, quality patient care, investment in sustained professional development of staff are important. Career flexibility addressed by a leadership succession and competency program to identify and retain organizational talent is essential in today’s scenario.

Concept of OCMU & SOAP lucidly explained
An excellent symposium on Maintenance of Medical Records was organized recently by Central India Nephrology Society at Chitnavis Centre, Nagpur. Dr.Anup Marar, Director (Administration), Orange City Hospital & Research Institute delivered the keynote address while Dr.Ashutosh Apte, Shri.Chandrakant Bhosale and Dr.V.L.Gupta were the faculty members. Dr.Lokendra Singh and Dr.Deepak Deshmukh chaired various sessions. At the outset, Dr.Dhananjay Ookalkar welcomed the gathering.
Dr.Anup Marar explained that records should be objective, consistent, meaningful and useable (OCMU). Moreover the need of all doctors, nurses to regularly write SOAP notes (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) after each examination and round is desired as archives and records management share a simple goal of providing for organizational & individual accountability. Accountability depends on being able to demonstrate managed access to information which is important for reasons of ongoing need or future evidence, from the time of its creation.
Document everything you do; as it is your documentation which is only going to be of any use later, he added. He conveyed that at OCHRI nobody is expected to follow oral instructions. There has to be an accountability of directives either upwards, downwards or in sideways communication. This maintains answerability and transparency.
