JAMMU, Mar 29: Financial Commissioner Health and Medical Education Department, Atal Dulloo today said government has roped in private hospitals and nursing homes to create additional isolation facilities across Jammu and Kashmir for treating COVID-19 patients.
In this regard, Atal Dulloo visited the Acharya Shri Chander College of Medical Sciences (ASCOMS) Jammu and assessed the isolation beds that have been spared by the hospital administration.
“We are continuously monitoring the situation and are roping in private hospitals and nursing homes to ramp up the isolation facilities across the Union Territory in case the numbers of COVID-19 patients increases. All the private hospitals and nursing homes are cooperating and have agreed to provide space for handling such patients”, Dullo said.
He said that nursing homes have agreed to provide space for handling 5-10 COVID -19 cases each. “The nursing homes in Jammu and Kashmir have given us in writing that they have kept isolation beds ready to handle COVID-19 patients.”
Atal Dullo said that they are assessing the facilities in these nursing homes to check their feasibility and efficiency. He said that separate teams have been constituted both in Jammu and Kashmir to assess the facilities that the private nursing homes have kept in isolation wards.
During his visit to the hospital, the FC was informed by the Director Principal of ACOMS that they have created space for 100 isolation beds with all the facilities in place. It was also informed that the hospitals authorities have kept separate space for handling emergency cases apart from keeping Intensive Care Unit beds.
