Strengthening of Health Infrastructure of Railway Hospitals to be done on mission mode: GM NCR

Strengthening of Health Infrastructure of Railway Hospitals to be done o­n mission mode: GM NCR

GM holds review meeting o­n progress of vaccination and upgradation of infrastructure in Railway Hospitals.

GM/NCR Shri V.K.Tripathi conducted a VC of all the three DRMs of NCR, top health officers of NCR and other senior officers o­n 17/05/2021. Shri Tripathi stressed upon strengthening of medical infrastructure, both in terms of men and material. He also emphasized o­n close monitoring of oxygen express trains as they pass through NCR and instructed that no detention to them should occur.

Dr. Anand Tandon, Principal Chief Medical Director informed that NCR’s fight against COVID has got a new momentum with further availability ofoxygen concentrators. With the help of NGOs, Jhansi Railway Hospital has received 49 more oxygen concentrators today. 47 concentrators of 5 litre capacity has been given by NGO ACP grants while NGO Shilpi has provided two oxygen concentrators of 10 litres capacity each. DRM Jhansi, Shri Sandeep Mathur informed that more such efforts are being done to associate NGOs in this battle against COVID. In addition to it, as a result of the help sought by the General Manager, 25 oxygen concentrators have been provided by UP state Government for Central Hospital Prayagraj. Besides this five oxygen concentrators have been provided by the Railway board to be used for Railway Hospital Agra.

In its bid to further strengthening the infrastructure, today rt-PCR machine has been delivered and installed at Central Hospital Prayagraj. This is expected to be functional soon and will significantly reduce the time lag between sampling and availability of results as now the hospital will conduct in house single stage rt-PCR testing. General Manager asked to get its functioning started at the earliest.

This is also worth mentioning that o­ne truenat rt-PCR machine has been provided to the Railway Hospital Agra by the district administration. Necessary permission to start it has been sought by state government which is expected to be received soon.

Apart from procurement and installation of infrastructure, another breakthrough achieved by NCR is the recruitment of 15 doctors o­n contractual basis for Prayagraj and three for Jhansi. Eight at Prayagraj and all the three at Jhansi have joined. Remaining are likely to join today. This development will redress the issue of shortage of doctors in Railway Hospital.

Shri Tripathi assured the health officials that all necessary support from Railway Board and from state government will be received as and when required. He further stressed upon 100% vaccination of staff and put a word of caution to observe adequate social distancing and to prevent crowding at vaccination sites. Medical Director, Dr. Handoo assured that all precautions are being taken and shared the photographs of the vaccination site at Central Hospital Prayagraj.
