Accident on the NH 14 Highway
On the 21st of September an accident happened just outside of our hospital. A motorbike and a small truck collided with each other. The two people riding on the motorbike were seriously injured. Especially the person sitting on the back of the bike was affected very hard, as he was thrown approximately 7 feet far and hit the front glass of the mini truck. The driver of the motorbike fell down on the road and had injuries both on his arm and his head.
The two motorbike drivers had traumatic injuries and bled from different parts of their bodies. Luckily, some villagers saw the accident and brought the injured directly to the hospital. Consequently the first aid treatment could directly start and our doctors and nurses worked with greatest efforts to help the patients. The hospital staff directly informed the relatives of the injured and within half an hour they arrived at the hospital.
After the patient’s medical condition improved, they have been brought for further treatment to the hospital in Jodhpur. Mr. Choga Ram (22) and Mr. Bhagirath are both fine, although Mr. Choga Ram still has to recover from his serious head injury. Their relatives appreciate the work of the nurses and doctors. The staff of the SSMA hospital is deeply grateful for the motivation and help of all donors and especially of Dr. S. Shanti, because due to them, all services for the needy ones of the area can be provided in this rural area!
