After a long gap of eight months, the State run Gandhi Hospital is going to resume services for the non Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 patients.
After the break out of the Novel Coronavirus, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) announced Gandhi Hospital to be a COVID-19 treatment centre.
However, after a long gap the services for non COVID-19 people would begin from the 21st of November.
All the outpatient, inpatient, elective and emergency surgeries at Gandhi Hospital are scheduled to start from the 21st of November.
In regard to this, the hospital authority sanitized the areas, wards and common rooms where the non COVID-19 patients would be allowed.
Dr. Raja Rao, the Superintendent of Gandhi Hospital, said although it was difficult to provide COVID-19 and non COVID-19 healthcare services simultaneously, the hospital would do its best for the people.
Dr. Raja Rao said, “We will do our best to provide treatment to non-Covid patients. However, we need cooperation from (the) general public, as they need to maintain COVID-19 appropriate behaviour.”
Director of Medical Education (DME) Dr. K. Ramesh Reddy visited Gandhi Hospital and reviewed the arrangements made for non COVID-19 patients.
Speaking about the rules for the patients, Dr. Reddy said non COVID-19 patients would be allowed with only one attendant and extensive labelling to guide patients towards separate entry and exit gates.
For now, there will not be visiting hours for family members and friends of patients who are admitted to the hospital and people with no masks will not be allowed inside.
