When minutes matter:
With an on-site Ambulance service, patients with the most critical needs can be on their way to the highest-level trauma center within no time. Our Emergency medical service personals are highly trained in stabilizing and preparing these patients for transport.
The term 'triage' implies prioritization of patients based on their degree of illness or injury. All emergency patients are triaged upon arrival. Sicker patients are then seen and treated more immediately than those with less urgent care needs.
While every attempt is made to see patients in the order they arrive and as quickly as possible, the care being given to critically ill or injured patients may cause delays for others. We continually strive to decrease those delays and are proud to have an enviable record of examining, treating, and releasing or admitting of our patients.
Our services are used extensively by patients who come to us for treatment for primary kidney problems or a wide range of other disorders. Although not widely available in the private health sector in the kingdom of Bahrain, kidney dialysis is available at The Clinic for private patients who need dialysis when they are with us, so that they can get the best possible care. The kidney centre offers both haemodialysis and ambulatory forms of dialysis.
