The RCC has earmarked areas for inpatient admission with better nursing care in the General ward, Day care chemotherapy ward, Surgery ward, Paediatric ward, Medical oncology ward, pay wards, Palliative Care pay ward, the Bone Marrow Transplant ward and the Intensive Care Units.
Other than in Pay wards, RCC does not permit bystanders. The visiting hours are between 4 PM and 6 PM. â€˜Visitorâ€™s entry Passâ€™, valid for a period of one week and permitting two persons is provided from the Information Counter. Bystanders are expected to adhere to time schedules written on the passes for purchase of medicines. Two bystanders are permitted in the Pay wards. With the 'Stay cum visiting passes', two persons can visit the patient each day. These measures are put in place in the best interest, security and welfare of the patient, which also help us to minimise infections and to maintain clean hospital premises.
Patients being admitted should pay the designated 'advance amount' at the time of admission at the cash counter. Besides this, hospital bills have to be settled on a weekly basis and the receipts of the same are to be submitted to the ward sister. Any doubts regarding treatment expenses should be cleared before or during the time of admission.
Patients who need immediate attention can make use of the '24 Hours Casualty Services'.
Inpatients are provided with meals at highly subsidised rates from the RCC canteen. To avail this, at the time of admission, the necessary information slip should be procured from the ward nurse and the requisite advance amount paid at the canteen. Patients belonging to the 'Below Poverty Line' category are given free food.
