GUIDELINES FOR STREAMLINING THE HEALING WORK
AT A SANJEEVINI SEVA CENTRE
7.5 GUIDELINES FOR STREAMLINING THE HEALING WORK AT A SANJEEVINI SEVA CENTRE
From the practical point of view there are several things (listed below) that can be done to streamline the work. This would of course depend on the size of the healing centre, how many healers are working at any one time and how many people are dispensing.
1. Make samples of all the Selected Sanjeevini Combinations (Chapter 5) or at least the commonly used combinations. Preferably make as many sets of Samples as there are dispensing stations. Please see Exhibit 23 on Page E-10 of Exhibits.
2. Each dispensing station should have a copy of the Sanjeevini Healing Cards. (Photocopies of the cards are equally effective.)
3. Make further samples of commonly used combinations which are subsidiary combinations of the main combination. For example you have a basic combination for Lung and Chest (SSC 28) and subsidiary combination for Cough (wet) or Bronchitis (SSC 28a). Since a chesty cough is a common occurrence (especially in India) it would be good to have ready a sample of SSC 28 (a) In fact if it is the season for this ailment, you can make up this combination in a large jar or better still have prefilled 1 drachm bottles ready to give out immediately.
4. Similarly, you have a basic combination for Digestion problems (SSC 16) and a subsidiary combination for Diarrhoea/Dysentry SSC 16 (f). It would be good to make up a sample of SSC 16 (f). (If there is even a rumour that some cases of cholera have been reported in the area, please add Cholera Sanjeevin to this. You cannot do any harm - remember Sanjeevinis are prayers.)
5. As you go along and the number of patients increases, you will need a person to give out "waiting numbers" so that patients are seen in an orderly fashion and there is no disgruntlement amongst them. If you have friends you do not like to keep waiting, either call them at the end of the clinic or before the clinic starts. Try not to break the discipline of a queue. An emergency is of course an exception.
6. Duties at the healing centre must be allocated clearly and unambiguously. Needless to say, duties must be performed lovingly and conscientiously. At the workplace where we go to earn a living, when we are lax, the system pulls us up or there is the fear of losing a job. When doing seva, the motivation is completely different. Because it is seva, total sincerity is called for. A healer cannot have the attitude "I'm doing this work free, so I can take it easy". It would be better not to do the work. In this work there should be no indiscipline, no slackness, no ego.
