SPECIAL INITIATIVES

Matruchhaya

It is the pure, unselfish and undeterring love of the mother that forms the basis of Child Care at Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Hospital. “MatruChhaya” literally means “In the shadow of the Mother”.

At Sai Sanjeevani, a mother is with the child at all times except during the surgery and pre-extubation periods, thus actively participating in the care giving process. An operated child experiences the warmth of his/her mother almost throughout the post-operative period.

All mothers and guardians are trained and counseled by the medical and paramedical teams during the pre-operative period on cleanliness & sanitation, maintenance of sterile conditions and basics of post-operative child care. They are particularly briefed on “Dos” & “Donts” and on signs of child recovery.

Medical benefits

The following are some of the major advantages noted by the medical team after analyzing post-operative recoveries at Sai Sanjeevani.

  • Reduced requirement of analgesics and sedatives
  • Easier medical management and handling of the child – medicine administration, physiotherapy , dressings and so on
  • More amenable for management in presence of the mother
  • More accurate interpretation of child response

“We have performed over 1600 surgeries at Sai Sanjeevani and are really happy that ‘MatruChhaya’ as a concept has been very advantageous in not only providing better post-operative care, but also almost completely evading any post-operative respiratory complications”
Medical Team , Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Hospital

Social Impact

At Sai Sanjeevani, it is common to observe patients and their families with poor cleanliness and sanitation habits. However, it is encouraging to see most of them transform into better and cleaner care givers through the training provided under MatruChhaya. However we feel that the true impact is that when these transformed families leave Sai Sanjeevani, they are also adequately convinced and prepared to spread the message of cleanliness to so many more families within their communities.

OTHER SERVICES

Daily Prayer

Prayer at Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Hospital is not just a ritual. Every day at 9 AM, it consciously connects all of us. In unison all staff and parents join to pray for the well being of all children undergoing surgery that very day. This very act of deep surrender, helps each one melt barriers of individuality and send the currents of healing power to one and all.

It reminds the staff every day of the dedication required to heal a child, it helps parents of the children to pray, not just for their own child , but for every child. It harnesses the good wishes of all our well wishers across the globe, even as they receive the message for prayer, through our website and through other social media platforms such as Facebook and Whatsapp.

SPECIAL INITIATIVES

Gift of Life

Gift of Life is a very special initiative at Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Hospital, conceptualized to remind parents of operated children, at the time of discharge, the precious gift that they have received from the society and the responsibility they hold in shaping up the child’s life as a responsible citizen contributing to National welfare.

Apart from the special guests who get to give this wonderful gift to the children, staff members of Sai sanjeevani also give this to the children, thus reminding themselves of the sacred opportunity received to serve one more child in need. The Hospital is overwhelmed to witness the arousing sense of gratitude among the families from across the country and the world coming to Sai Sanjeevani.
