On 03 February 2019, the new dental treatment unit at the hospital was inaugurated. Within a few months, the old reception of the bed wing, which was no longer needed, was converted into a modern dental treatment room. A dentist from the next town is ready to hold and treat a consultation once a week. KS-plus provided the financial means for the reconstruction.
On February 03 a medical camp took place next to the hospital. Already weeks before, the population in the villages of the nearer and further surroundings was made aware of it by means of posters and loudspeaker announcements and invited.
Specializations were offered: Accident surgery/orthopaedics, general medicine, ophthalmology, general surgery, gynaecology. Laboratory and ECG examinations were also available. Required X-ray examinations were carried out in the hospital.
About 700 people came, 50 of whom had to be treated surgically.
A used dental chair recently arrived at Kirpal Sagar Hospital. It had already been expected for some time and is now to find its place in the bed wing. Preparations for the installation had already taken place in the course of the year, now it is about the concrete installation. Commissioning is expected for February 2019. We are already curious….
In classes 11 and 12, the Academy offers several branches, including the “medical branch”, which prepares students for scientific and medical studies. Today, 11th grade students were in the hospital to get to know further measures in addition to first aid. One of the nurses guided the group through the admission ward. Practical exercises were then held, including taking the blood pressure.
Today we received the news that the slit lamp and ophthalmic equipment passed their first test at the medical camp around the Kirpal Sagar Charitable Hospital on 18 March 2018.
The joy about the new equipment is literally written on the examiner’s face. The devices with a value of 1600 Euro could be ordered in February 2018, after KS-plus e.V. had transferred money in December 2017.
The technical settings as well as the instructions of the users had taken place before the camp.
More than 50 listeners came to the kick-off event of the annual program 2018 at 17:00 o’clock in the cultural center HNKKJ in Waldkirchen in the Bavarian forest under the motto “Indian evening – a somewhat different travel report” and was organized by KS-plus e.V.. Tea lights and flower decorations between the chairs, the gentle smell of Indian spiced tea and soft piano tones put the visitors in the right mood. The pianist Tatiana Sverko had put together ten well-chosen musical contributions, from Indian Bhajan to the late Romantics Satie and Debussy to arrangements of current compositions. They divided the lecture with the emphasis on health (Dr. Walter Stadlmeyer), education (Martina Stadlmeyer) and current projects, embedded in a personally colored report on the development of Kirpal Sagar. For the break, busy hands had conjured up a buffet: cakes and tarts, coffee and the typical North Indian spiced tea, as well as finger food and snacks. It resulted in many stimulating discussions, the last visitors went shortly before 21 o’clock. “One can hardly believe it that so many listeners for such a special topic came” was the comment of a visitor prevented because of other date, an estimate, to which the scarcely 20 participants, aids and musicians could only follow.
