Inpatient Wards Overview

 As an essential component of the Department, Impatient Ward Division fully commits to patient-oriented, efficacy-centered and safety-premised daily practice. In 2012, it received 1,890 admissions, involving frequent skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, connective tissue diseases, cutaneous viral/ bacterial/ fungal infection, lymphoma, benign and malignant skin tumors, and hemangioma, etc. Other parameters were 8.18 days average hospital stay, 44.96 bed turn-over, 100% first-class medical records, 99% patient satisfaction and zero dispute.

 

Besides frequent skin diseases, the division has accumulated experience in rare and severe cases. In 2012, the division has admitted 20+ emergent or severe cases, including severe drug eruption, anaphylactoid purpura, purpura fulminans, dermatomyositis accompanied by rhabdomyolysis, melanoma with systemic metastasis and rare diseases such as SLE with purpura fulminans as initial presentation, psoriasis pustulose during pregnancy, non-hodgkin lymphoma presented as mycosis fungoides, delayed Vit K1 deficiency, ichthyosis linearis circumflexa, primary thrombocythemia, and systemic amyloidosis, occurring to patients aged 0~90+ years old. Hard efforts of the whole division, assisted by brother departments from the hospital, have successfully rescued 99%+ admitted patients.

 

The division is also a major educator of dermatologists. In 2012, 29 visiting dermatologists and postgraduates have completed their resident training in the inpatient ward division and grown into a mainstay in their institution. The division also sent our own residents to learn new and unique skills at First Hospital of Peking University, Shanghai Ninth People’s Hospital, Guangdong Provincial Hospital of TCM.

 

In addition to the perfection of conventional therapeutic regimes, the division also keenly seeks expansion, such as propranolol for infantile hemangioma, renal dynamic imaging for the assessment of renal damage, plum-blossom needle tapping along meridians for herpes zoster, etc. It also pays due attention to the accumulation of clinical experience and standardization of clinical pathways by drafting standard protocols of frequent diseases in the hope of facilitating diagnosis and treatment as well as saving medical resource.
