The assessment of patients on arrival to decide how soon treatment is required and how urgent their illness or injury is called triaging. Triage aims at ensuring that those patients assessed as having the most urgent need are treated quickly than those patients with a less urgent need.

At Vimhans PrimaMed, triage is done by expert Triage Nurse as soon as possible the patient arrives in the Institute of Emergency & Trauma Services. All our patients are triaged on the basis of the speed with which they require medical attention.

We at Vimhans PrimaMed Institute of Emergency & Trauma have categorized triage stages into the following stages:

Stage 1

Patients who are required to have treatment immediately or within few minutes are categorized as having an immediate life-threatening condition. People in this stage are critically ill and need immediate attention. Most may have arrived in the Institute of Emergency & Trauma Services by ambulance. People suffering from a critical injury or cardiac arrest fall into this stage.

Stage 2

Patients need to have treatment within 10 minutes are categorized as having imminently life threatening condition. People with difficulty breathing, serious chest pain and severe fracture are included in this stage.

Stage 3

People in this category require having treatment within 30 minutes. Patients in this stage suffer commonly from severe illnesses, bleed heavily from cuts, having fractures, or be dehydrated.

Stage 4

People need to have treatment within one hour are putting in this category as having a potential condition. Patients in this stage have less severe symptoms or injuries, such as a foreign body in the eye, migraine, earache, or sprained ankle.

Stage 5

People in this stage have minor illnesses that may have been present for more than one weak and are categorized as a less urgent condition. We at Vimhans PrimaMed have a smoke-free environment, and if necessary, we arrange an interpreter for the convenience of our national and international patients.
