Compassionate, highly qualified and thoroughly professional, our nurses are the backbone of patient care at Holy Family Hospital, Mumbai.

We believe in a holistic approach to healthcare and that patient well-being plays a crucial role in the healing process. We therefore train our nurses to go above and beyond the call of duty, to be good listeners and receptive to our patients’ needs. Apart from being proficient on the job, our nurses tend to all our patients in the spirit of caring.

Nurses’ Station
Every ward is overseen by a Nurses’ Station, where a team of nurses works in eight-hour shifts. Our nurses are well-versed in each patient’s case details and patients can rest assured they are in excellent hands. Each Nurses’ Station is supervised by a Ward In-Charge, who may be approached should the need arise.

A Resident Medical Officer (RMO), who works in shifts, is assigned to every Nurses' Station. The RMO is responsible for the execution of diagnosis & treatment according to the consulting physicians' instructions. He / she is the patient’s link to their consulting physicians. Any queries regarding medical issues may be addressed to the RMO on duty or your consulting physician during his / her visits.

Training Programmes
Holy Family Hospital, Mumbai, places a premium on training its nurses so that they are well-versed in all aspects of medicine. Training is hands-on and continuous and is imparted in-house and by external medical facilities and institutions.

In-House : Our nurses are trained in-house by the heads of various departments and our consulting physicians. They also regularly attend lectures and symposia organised as part of the excellent Continuing Medical Education Programme conducted by The Bandra Holy Family Medical Research Society. Since these programmes discuss current trends in medicine and healthcare, our nurses acquire a valuable perspective on various medical and surgical specialties.

External : To further update their knowledge and skills, we also enrol our nurses with training programmes conducted by other hospitals and medical associations and institutions including Tata Memorial Hospital, P D Hinduja National Hospital, L T Hospital (SNDT Women’s University), Hospital Infection Society – Mumbai, Trained Nurses Association of India and the Indian Nursing Council.

Apart from routine patient care duties, our nurses are also assigned to specialty departments such as our Critical Care Units, Operation Theatres, Emergency Care and Infection Control. Again, the nurses in these departments are specially trained to discharge these specialty patient care services.

This emphasis on training and upgrading of nursing skills and practices makes it possible for our hospital to offer the best possible patient care.
