Anantnag, 19th May:Principal Government Medical College Anantnag, Dr Showkat Jeelani while taking daily detailed meeting of all the senior officials including Medical Superintendent of MMABM Hospital Anantnag. In the meeting detailed review was taken by the Principal for optimal utilisation of Manpower and machinery to its best which is already stretched to its maximum.
Right now GMC Anantnag has Oxygen Generation capacity of 2350LPM apart from 200 Bulk Oxygen cylinders which are supplying medium and high flow oxygen to 120 Oxygen beds including high dependency unit (HDU). Due to significantly increased case load of both RT-PCR Positive and RT-PCR negative B/L pneumonias requiring medium and high flow oxygen, the demand of Oxygen is increasing day by day, however, as of now all the patients who are admitted in the hospital are receiving adequate oxygen as per their Clinical requirements.
The Hospital authorities have taken up the issue of supplying more oxygen generation plants apart from Bulk type oxygen Cylinders with the government and we are hopeful that needful will be done urgently so that more oxygen beds may be added to the institution.
Meanwhile, the video clip circulating in the social media discrediting the efforts of the Hospital staff is not true but the Principal has taken serious note if it and enquiry is being conducted as per the directions received from District Administration and if anyone is found guilty, action will be taken as per the laws of the land.
In last three months, Patients admitted in Department of medicine had overall mortality rate was 10.8% which is lower than other institutions while as recovery rate is about 89% and Referral rate is only 1%.
The Hospital is trying its best to cope up with increased case load of RT-PCR Positive and RT-PCR negative B/L pneumonias requiring medium and high flow oxygen. As on today about 160 number on Patients requiring medium and high flow oxygen are admitted at the hospital. All the emergency medicines apart from other logistics including PPE suits are available in bulk. We request general public to follow covid appropriate behaviour including Wearing of double masks, physical Distancing and hand hygiene. Minimum number of Attendants must accompany the Patient while coming to the hospital.
