Projects: Health

together with the Hospital in Kirpal Sagar

Our Projects Health play an important role at KS-plus, most of them with the Charitable Hospital in the care of poor patients, who otherwise cannot afford.

Projects Healt: Dental Care

    • The hospital received a dental treatment unit at the beginning of 2019. KS-plus provided the financial means to expand a room and to install a used dental treatment unit. We are currently collecting funds for the expansion of the equipment. In the medium term, a mobile drilling unit is to extend the radius of action.

Projects Health: Hospital Expansion and Extension

    • There are extensions at the building planned (surgery: OP wing, extension of the operative spectrum; ophthalmology): The building will be reopened with cataract surgeries and functional improvements (connection of the bed tract to the functional tract). KS-plus is doing its utmost to support the upgrading and expansion of the facilities and buildings as well as the establishment and expansion of the departments. It’s really a long-term health project.

Projects Health: IT and Data Management

    • Advice on upgrading data processing (since 2014*), search for suitable open source programs (hospital information system). These are designed for large hospitals and require extensive adaptation, which is why a simple, tailor-made solution is envisaged. The first drafts of the program’s user interface were presented on site in 2019, and many other organizational processes were integrated into the concept. In a first step, the existing administration system is to be replicated on a modern database basis. In a second step, additional functions will be integrated in close cooperation with the management and the employees on site.

Upgrade electric supply

    • Photovoltaik needs strong power lines for delivery. Therefore the power lines and the jacks have to be strong enough to stand with the needs. 2022 a power line empowerment project was started which will help to lift the reliability of electric supply for the hospital to a new level.
    • current reporting about the hospital, also about the health service in India
    • help with the employment of the mobile hospital of the partner organization BSK Welfare Society, occupied with personnel of the hospital
