Casualty/Outpatient department is the entry point to KCMC. In other words, it is the face of this famous institution, and perhaps the busiest department. All patients, emergencies and nonemergencies, referrals and self-referrals must pass through this department which operates for 24 hours. The department receives emergencies, either brought in directly or referred from other health units within and outside the catchments area of KCMC, and from the neighbouring countries. Referrals for specialized services pass through casualty/OPD.
The goal has always been to attend all patients regardless of their colour, faith, race, economic status, etc. at all times. The spirit of team work, sharing knowledge and ideas has made the unit stand.The vision is to make the department a centre of excellence in emergency medical care. The department receives an average of 80 to 100 patients a day. In spite of the very small space, it has been possible to attend all these patients.
