Bengaluru: As the nationwide lockdown imposed by the central government to curb the spread of the coronavirus near its end, Jindal Naturecure Institute, India’s premier naturopathy healthcare facility, is all set to reopen admissions and receive patients from 16th November 2020 with strict safety protocols.
When the lockdown was announced in March 2020, patients who were already within the campus were continuously monitored throughout their stay without any shortcomings in their standard of care. Further admissions were suspended and the institute was closed after the discharge of those patients. Alternatively, the institute’s doctors and experts continued to offer free online yoga sessions and tips to improve immunity for fighting with the virus through Webinars. As the situation on the ground is slowly getting back to normal, Jindal Naturecure Institute is now ready to resume its operations after repeated requests from patients and the naturopathy believers. The entire campus has been thoroughly sanitized; the institute strictly follows the social distancing norms and other protocols proposed by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
“Since there was a directive from the central government, we had to put everything on hold while ensuring that the patients staying on the campus when the lockdown was announced are not inconvenienced in any way. To ensure a continuum of care for our regular patients and promote good health practices, we launched online Q&A sessions in the interest of a common man during the lockdown. With patient demand rising, we are ready to resume our operations. As per the directive issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare officials, strict sanitation and hygiene protocols have been put in place as the safety of our patients and doctors is of the highest priority. We have used the downtime to ensure a sanitized environment, trained staff to follow the highest safety standards and put safe practices to govern new normal, said Mr. KR Raghunath, Senior Chairman, Jindal Naturecure Institute.
The efficient response to this pandemic is because of the self-sustaining campus. Equipped with vegetable and dairy farming facilities, most of their daily produce is grown within the campus, which makes them almost completely independent. They are not subject to the vagaries of an unreliable supply chain and outside contamination, making it easier for them to resume operations.
“We believe in the model of the self-sustaining campus with a low carbon footprint and environmentally friendly policies. Apart from our in-house dairy and vegetable farms, we also have state-of-the-art water recycling systems. The recycled water is used for irrigation and as an alternative to the mains water for wash-down applications as the dependence of the outside world is minimal; hence we are as good as a Bio-Secure Bubble. We do not want to be a burden on our neighbors when it comes to energy and water, and our policies and measures reflect our commitment. Most of our employees live in the campus and therefore, there is no chance of getting infection inside the campus through anyone, We hope that our environmentally conscious approach serves as a model for other institutes in the healthcare industry.” added Mr. KR Raghunath, Senior Chairman, Jindal Naturecure Institute.
The healthcare operations of the institute will be revived completely in phases. At present, only limited admissions are allowed in the deluxe, suites and executive rooms category of accommodations, and operations in the economy block will resume once the reopening proceeds smoothly.
