The Telangana Institute Of Medical Sciences, one of the four designated medical facilities in the city for total covid care, has had a roller coaster ride throughout March, April, and May. They were overflowing with covid patients, and problems in the facility were mounting as well.
During this time, doctors who were on their toes ensured that they worked their way out through the issues, treated patients, and saved their lives. TIMS has had many shortages of all kinds throughout the second wave, which caused many issues to many patients. But at the same time, many doctors and health experts came forward to contribute to the government facility to ensure treatment is going on without a stop and people head towards recovery.
The recent gesture of a doctor couple has been of the same level as their contribution to the hospital might not have come at an hour of need but will see TIMS through when there is a possible third wave. The doctors Dr Rajesh Puchakayala, RMO and Dr Maramreddy Aparna, Senior Resident- Psychiatry, have donated stainless steel shelf trolleys costing Rs 1 lakh to the hospital.
The director of TIMS has applauded this gesture from the couple for the future of the hospital. The current scenario is seeing many cases dip and contributions of all kinds take a rise in the city and state. Many donations are seen to be a replenishment for the resources used up during the second wave, and the other contributions are for the motive to help hospitals not run out of stock and be prepared for the upcoming third wave that is coming very soon
