Inpatient Services

AKUH provides comprehensive inpatient services in almost all major disciplines of medicine and surgery. There are 15 inpatient units with a total capacity of 577 beds. This includes 55 critical care beds of ICU, CICU, CCU and NICU. The average length of inpatient stay at AKUH is the lowest in the city i.e. 3.3 days. All inpatients are routed either through the Emergency Medicine Section or the outpatient services.

Facilities offered in nursing units are: five-bedded general wards, two-bedded semi-private rooms and single-bedded private rooms and limited VIP private rooms in the Private Wing. Most of the nursing units have a five-bedded Special Care Unit (SCU) for patients who need close monitoring and supervision. The major strength of the inpatient service lies in its highly dedicated team of professionals comprising medical consultants, fellows, residents, trained and competent nurses and other paramedical staff who provide high-quality health care through a collaborative effort together with a broad range of state-of-the-art equipment to give the best possible diagnosis and treatment options. Being a teaching Hospital affiliated with Aga Khan University's Faculty of Health Sciences, the clinical ward rounds are typically medical education oriented. Senior residents are available to patients round-the-clock.

All inpatient services have a unique system of prescribing drugs through Physician Order Entry (POE). Each floor has a fully operational nursing station equipped with network computer systems for accessing a patient's investigation results and medical records, unit receptionists, nursing staff and residents.
