Delhi needs to increase bed capacity
the government is looking to convert stadia, banquet halls, hotels into Covid facilities where symptomatic patients can be sent. Serious patients will have to remain admitted in hospitals. But the biggest challenge is to get manpower — doctors, nurses , other allied staff for the new facilities.
Why not Govt first fix cap on rate for covid treatement. Then partner with private hospitals with the powers vested via DM act and have 50% private hospitals do 100% covid 19.
The price should be such that hospital can also survive and the patients are also not overcharged more
Increasing the number of beds must be followed by an relative increase in number of doctors and staff. Where will they come from ? more
Lock down was imposed in 24th March, mainly to give time to Governments to prepare for Community transmission stage, like increasing number of beds etc. But Land Lord of Delhi was busy during lock down period for distribution of food kits to his follower's.Because he shown the cost every kit as Rs. 2,000/- but actually it has items worth Rs. 700/- He was busy in making commission and people of Delhi paying the price. more
Why don't govt gave paid insurence cover to middle income group. That's the only solution with capping of treatment charges as per insurance company package. more
it is nice. what the sports ministry is going to do ? what the trainees and trainers going to do ? do we have enough supplies to convert stadia into hospitals ? why do not we create medical facilities at block levels and utilise the local unemployed to be inducted into medical service ? creating mess out of a mess is massacre . more
What about the famous Mohalla Clinics, which even former UN Chief also praised ? more
Yes, the first issue is fixing the cost of medical care to coronavirus patients under the existing Healthcare Schemes of the GoI and the States. The rates have to be such that could be within the means of the patients/attendants. The existing hospitals in India have also to take care of the other non-Covid19 patients already under treatment. OPD patients are not being attended in other hospitals, which is a negligent service. more
