Dear K-Way Readers,

Welcome to December.

Your keen receptivity to our K-Way digital platform every month inspires us to endeavour to bring you the most useful and up-to-date information about health care. Such information comes to you directly and lucidly from our doctors.

As we have come to the last month of 2021, we realize how time has flown. Did we make use of it wisely?

The pandemic years have certainly taught us many unforgettable lessons - about safeguarding health of self and family, both mental and physical. However, we know that we struggled with both - that of our own, our elders and our children. It was not easy to cope as we were unprepared; it was unexpected, and we took time to accept reality. The pandemic exacted a great toll on the mental and physical health of every individual in the world. Let us learn to recover, and let us hope we can undo the damage done to our children, elders and ourselves.

We wish you a healthier and less rainy, month ahead. And a happier, healthier new year starting just a month away. Let us celebrate every day as we do the 1st day of a new year. Let us wake up to every day, and see the dawn of the day as the best gift the day can bring to us, as life can be so unpredictable. To see, hear, talk, think, eat, move our limbs freely, to see our whole-body function, and to love and be loved, are all very special gifts. If we have all these, and more, we should be happy to live, let live and love.

Failing to comprehend what is happening to their life, fun, education and the preparation for a career has driven our younger generation towards mental health problems long before physical health problems manifest. It is our duty to make sure the younger generation is protected, supported, counselled and guided, to make their world a healthier and happier place. It is the social responsibility of every citizen to safeguard the mental health of the younger generation. That shall be our closing theme for this year and the opening theme for next year. Because our life and love are invested in our children!

Thank you.

Stay safe.

Merry Christmas!

Highlights @ Kauvery

Focused Intervention Training for Capacity Building & Performance Enhancement

Team Innovations

Greetings from Innovations! At Kauvery, we believe that learning is a continuous process, not an episodic event. We are slowly transitioning from event-based general training to department-specific training focused on holistic development. This is a departure from the traditional approach to L&D, where learning materials are presented in the same format across departments and it often falls woefully short on addressing ongoing needs. Since the healthcare industry is continuously evolving and growing, meaning what we consider best practices today can easily become obsolete tomorrow. It is imperative that our teams keep up to date with training and enlarge their knowledge and skillset (both technical & soft skill), as this is undoubtedly the key to us providing the best care possible. Here's a quick snapshot of our activities in recent months.



With the holiday season upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year. Most of us are probably wondering how the year got away from us, yet again. New Year's Day surely wasn't just 11 months ago, was it?. Where did the time go? Looking back, did you achieve what you hoped to at the beginning of the year? If not, what were the roadblocks? If yes, what catalyzed your success?

With another year drawing to a close, we think this is a good time to pause and reflect on your own learning and development journey thus far. One month is a good amount of time. There are 31 days left, you can still get a lot done. Gradually completing the tasks you have been putting off will definitely set you up for a positive end of the year. Make your December count.

Children's Day Celebrations at Kauvery Hospital

“Every child is a different kind of flower and all together make this world a beautiful garden.”

Children's Day is truly special not only for children but also for grown-ups as it allows them to relive their childhood again!

This Children's Day was celebrated with immense joy, enthusiasm and magnificence at the paediatric OPD, Kauvery Health Centre, on 14th November 2021. The entire arena wore a festive look with colourful balloons hanging from every corner of the room. The children were very amused and joyful and participated enthusiastically in all the events. The OPD for a change was a welcome venue, full of blistering activities, laughter and fun. To motivate the children, special gifts were handed out which were received by them with a sparkling smile on their faces. True to the saying 'Catch them young!', the hospital's gesture was cherished by the parents as well.

The event was conducted under the able guidance of Dr Pushkala M.S, Consultant Paediatrician, Kauvery Hospital. The event turned out to be a grand success!!!
