Haematology and Day Care Center

The Department of Haematological Medicine at Breach Candy Hospital has a well staffed, patient friendly service involving Doctors, technicians, nurses and receptionists who are well geared to cater exclusively to the needs of patients with haematological / heamato-oncological disorders.
The dedicated staff is well - trained in all aspects of management including chemotherapy, transfusion medicine treatment - packed cells, platelets and other component therapy, chemotherapy for Haematological malignancies and other Haematological treatments like IV iron and immunoglobulin therapy are routinely given on day - care basis. Whether it is component therapy, blood transfusion or chemotherapy, patient comfort is our priority. We are a hospital - based setup and often have components in excess, thus for our regular patients we do not insist on replacement donors. Patients for Heamatological problems are referred to us in our Clinic in the Department of Haematological medicine. On the spot blood is collected and investigated stat in our specialized lab in the department. Once the diagnosis is made, treatment is instituted in our day-care service which is a part of the Department.

Under the department of haematological medicine, we have a state-of-the-art haematology lab which does all tests for anaemia, bleeding disorders, thrombosis, haematological malignancies along with the routine haematological tests. Our haematology lab conforms to all standards concerning lab quality and safety. We participate in External Quality Control Programmes and at the same time run Internal Quality Checks and Controls everyday. This exercise is aimed at ensuring Zero error.

Many of the samples which come to our laboratory are of medical emergencies, hence, we ensure a very fast turn around time. We have systems in place for communicating critical values to the referring doctors. Out patients get their reports via email.

Needless to say, the equipments we have are most advanced in that category- Sysmex-XN and -XT for doing CBC, Stago Compact for coagulation, Roche Multiplate for platelet aggregation etc. However, as the saying goes, it is the man behind the machine which is crucial is also important and we have a team of highly skilled professionals who work under the guidance of Dr. V.P. Antia, senior haematologist and head of haematological medicine.
