Water Conservation in CK Birla Hospital 

According to Om Gunjan Prakash (Deputy Manager, Engineering Department) at R.K. Birla Hospital, ‘’The quality of water depends on the occupancy of the patient i.e. how many patients are admitted in the hospital.’’

He specifies his role in conserving water at CK Birla Hospital as follows: 

  • To tackle the technical areas of the hospital like electricity, energy, solar, HVAC system, and internal HVAC system to maintain the temperature, humidity, and pressure of the operation theater.
  • To maintain the water positivity at the hospital by keeping a check on water resources, and plumbing, keeping the areas infection-free to avoid contamination. 
  • To maintain the fire fighting system. 
  • To track uninterrupted power supply in the ICUs for the patients who are on a ventilator or support system, so that they don’t get affected due to the interruptions in electricity. 

His role is to make sure that the patient does not receive a threat due to a lack of maintenance in water, electricity, power supply, solar, and other areas. 

What is CK Birla Doing To Become Water-Positive?

Om states that in Rajasthan, Jaipur is an over-exploited zone. In the last few years, with rapid industrial development, there have been growing water requirements.

Due to this, recycling through rainwater harvesting came to an end. With extensive water extraction, water is not recycled properly leading to water scarcity in different industries like agriculture, healthcare, industrial operations, and more. 

To avoid water scarcity, here’s how CK Birla adapts to water positivity:

Maintaining Hygiene, Cleanliness & Infection-Free Areas

Om states that patient safety starts in an infection-free area which is possible only through cleanliness and maintaining hygiene.

Our growth stops when we fail to provide our patients with an environment where they are unable to grow, heal, and cure.

To create infection-free areas in CK Birla, we need to take care of air contamination and water contamination. If both areas are taken care of, the patient will not be affected and his recovery will be faster. 

Incorporating Innovative Technology in Hospital

The aim is to provide our team with the right resources in the right situation at the right time while teaching them how to use the latest equipment for water conservation. 

For example: 

  • In the hospital gardens, they use the latest technology like sprinklers for better irrigation and less water wastage.
  • For flower beds, they use drip irrigation systems so that the roots of the flowers get water in optimum quantity and their growth is flourishing. 
  • They use innovative technology to clean their solar plates with less water and electricity consumption so that our environmental resources are safe and they get electricity at a minimal cost. 

Educate and Train Staff on Water Conservation

CK Birla team educates the team on the role of water in hospitals, why it is important, and how to follow water conservation.

How patient care, sanitation, and treatment services can be affected if there’s no water.

For example, CK Birla teaches their staff to throttle the top knob so that a large quantity of water does not come out of it. 

How is Kritsnam Helping CK Birla?

As Om said, ‘There are a lot of companies and startups that come up with everyday new technologies to save water in the practice of water saving, but we choose Dhaara from Kritsnam.’’

Different Parameters For Measuring Water Consumption

Every month they make sure to check how much water is consumed. And, their water consumption has decreased as compared to last month.

CK Birla measures the consumption of water using an ultrasonic flow meter which gives daily updates and monthly data.

Accordingly, they analyze their water-saving capacity by comparing how much water consumption took place in the last month as compared to this one. Yearly audits take place to find out how much water is saved. 

For instance, last year they conducted an audit with CII to find out the areas where water can be saved in better ways.

It meets all the CGWA parameters and complies with all the water requirements. The best part is that it does not require additional electricity or a UPS supply.
