Rickshaw drivers were trained to protect the casualties in the wake of global hypertension day. A camp was organized for rickshaw pullers by Wockhardt Hospital team located in Mira Road. In this camp, 50 rickshaw drivers from Mira Bhayander Autorickshaw Chalak Malak Ekta Sanghatan participated.
In this camp, the trainees were trained to stop the bleeding of the person who suffered serious injuries, to keep the back of the spine straight, to inform the relatives of the victims, to increase the morale of the patient, rescue breaths to the injured person and to try to save the person with the primary treatment.
When contacted, Ravi Hirwani, Chief Wockhardt Hospital Center said that there is a less physical injury during traffic. But they are required to get immediate treatment in every accident. Only through this one can save the life.
In road accidents, there is a serious blow to hands and feet. If the person is taken to the hospital on time, we can save them. Due to the delay of 10 to 15 minutes, the casualties have to lose body organs for a lifetime. After giving first aid training to the autorickshaw drivers, it is the purpose of drivers to save the lives of the casualties. The team have been instructed to provide such training to the autorickshaw drivers in Thane and Palghar.
In the last 10 years, the number of vehicles has increased. Disproportionately, the transportation of two-wheeler vehicles has become a serious problem today.
The autorickshaw driver should be a responsible driver and can save many lives. Also, 50 rickshaw pullers have been sworn in for not accepting the rent from pregnant women. Autorickshaw drivers also underwent a free health check up and some of them were diagnosed to have diabetes and high blood pressure disorders, and they have been guided for further treatment.
