ERWatch team is ready to assist in an emergency

Just like big brother, the team watch their patients 24/7. ERWatch is a company that was appointed by Kiaat Hospital in March to manage their emergency trauma unit.

The unit is under the leadership of Dr Eric Khumalo (44) and Dr Chris Zungu (36). The pair boasts about 10 years of experience and serving patients with passion is what they do best. Prioritising emergency matters is what they specialise in.

Since they started earlier this year they have managed to turn things around and plan to keep providing excellent service at an affordable price.

If you are tired of waiting in line while you are in pain visit this team and you will not be disappointed.

Everything is treated as an emergency and it is given 100 per cent attention. Thankfully, the ER has all the basics, which makes it easy for the doctors to perform their duties on a daily basis. Both doctors are trained on basic life support, advance cardiac life support, advance trauma life support and advance paediatric life support.

According to Khumalo, it is of great importance to make sure that patients get the best treatment because an emergency situation is stressful enough as it is. They are well equipped and make sure that they have all the things needed to take care of young and old.

Due to ERWatch’s location, they have the advantage of having all the specialists available whenever they may be needed.

The duo have worked on maintaining good relationship with the specialists in the hospital; if a matter requires a gynaecologist or physician for example, they are called to assist the patient immediately.

The ERWatch team has big plans for the people in the Lowveld. As part of educating the community they serve, the two are planning a project to educate people on what to do during an emergency situation. Zungu said that in most cases people find themselves in worse situations due to a lack of knowledge. For example some people choose not to go for a consultation simply because they think their situation is not an emergency, even though it real is.

 

These professionals excel in managing stroke cases, and they know just how to deal with those who have suffered one. It is important for patients to know that stroke victims must get clot-busting drugs within four-and-a-half-hours to stand the best chance of a full recovery. They also have state-of-the-art equipment in their radiology lab that assist with diagnosis.

This team plans to make a difference for everyone, including pupils at local schools, by equipping them with all the information they need during an emergency situation.
