Expert panels check Covid-19 hospitals for compliance

Saturday, 17 Oct, 4.59 pm

Expert committees constituted in various districts to check infrastructure facilities and patient services at Covid-19 hospitals, have come across various lapses.

The committees are verifying whether the Covid hospitals have CCTVs, help desks, offer patient counselling through video calls, complying with patient diet and other Covid norms. They are also verifying whether Covid positive dead bodies are being dealt with in a dignified manner. The Supreme Court, in its order to chief secretaries of all states, had directed that CCTV cameras have to be installed in dedicated Covid hospitals to facilitate the management of patients.
