Jammu: Principal Government Medical College Jammu and Associated Hospitals, Dr Shashi Sudhan Sharma today reviewed the covid 19 situation with Medical Superintendents and HoDs.
After threadbare discussion, the meeting decided to de-reserve some designated Covid wards in view of reduction in the number of Covid positive cases and resultant decline in covid admissions, and handover the same to the Department of Orthopedics, Department of Surgery and Department of Medicine.
It is expected that the decision shall go a long way in improving non covid patient care.
Earlier, these wards were being used for management of Covid patients. This arrangement shall be subject to review and the entire Sop’s/guidelines regarding covid-19 management shall get re-operationalized in case of an increase in covid-19 patients, the GMC Principal ordered.
The Medical Superintendents have also been advised to provide sufficient para-medical staff for optimum use of non-covid wards and all other attendant medical infra.
