A hospital is a very important place where most of us have visited it at least five to six times either to consult a doctor or to visit a patient. The hospital is an institution that provides services related to health care and treatment. They have equipment’s and staff required to cater to the illness of the patient. There are many types of hospitals made to cater to the needs of man. There is a children’s hospital, police and army hospital, rehabilitation hospitals and general hospital. Each one of these hospitals requires a different set of staff, equipment and facilities. A teaching hospital in compared to the other hospitals is quite different because most of the professionals working in there are training doctors and nurses who are doing their intern ship and being monitored by a senior doctor or nurse. A smaller version of a hospital is a clinic that does not have all the equipment’s and examples of some clinics are the foot clinic Geelong and veterinarian clinic. Hospitals have doctors, either as hospital staff or permanent staff.
Doctors with a range of qualifications visit the hospital from cardio specialist to podiatrists Geelong. Hospitals even have general physicians working at the OPD which is a 24 hour service that comes in handy in the case of an emergency.

ICU (intensive care unit) in a hospital is a unique division where patients who are in a very critical stage are been put into. It has high tech equipment such as mechanical ventilators which will help patients with breathing problems. The ICU also has other equipment such as cardiac monitors and defibrillators. Just like the ICU one could find many other units in the hospital such as the CCU (coronary care unit). Along with these units one could find support units such as the radiology department and the pathology department. Hospitals also have labour rooms that are made to cater to pregnant mothers who are going to delivery their baby.
Other services a hospital provides is a pharmacy in which patients could buy their necessary medicines prescribed to them by their doctor. Some hospitals even have a kid’s play area just to keep the little ones occupied. A cafeteria can also be found where patients and even the patient’s visitors could get a few snacks or a meal.
There are main two sectors the hospitals are divided into and that are the private hospital and the government hospital. The facilities and prices between the two have a huge difference but it all depends on people’s perspectives.
