Maharastra government sets up India’s best COVID-19 Hospital at GMC, Nagpur

Maharashtra Government has set up one of India’s best COVID-19 Hospitals at the Government Medical College (GMC) in Nagpur. The COVID-19 Hospital in Nagpur can arguably be called the best of India’s critical facility for COVID-19 patients on many counts, as the hospital follows the most ideal designs in terms of layout, equipment, facilities and manpower.

While this critical care hospital for COVID-19 patients has already started operating on strength of 200 beds, the facility can be scaled up to 900 beds, in case of a rise in emergency cases in the city. To save the doctors, paramedics and nurses from catching Corona infection from the patients, three separately segregated areas (for even entries and exits) have been designed for doctors, paramedics and the patients. The separate facility for disposing of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits is also available for the doctors and paramedics.

The doctors, at this hospital, can observe the COVID-19 patients through their specially designed isolated glass chambers while maintaining social distancing to safeguard themselves. When the patients reach the hospital, through the special entry designed for them, their samples are taken at the special facility at the entry, and then they are admitted in the hospital for the treatment.

While the hospital has an oxygen plant that supplies oxygen to all the beds directly through the pipelines, there are ventilators available to severe all the beds in the event of short supply of oxygen through the plant.

In a telephonic conversation with Nation Next, the man behind creating such super speciality hospitals for COVID-19 patients across the state, Dr Sanjay Mukherjee, Secretary, Medical Education and Drugs Department, Government of Maharashtra, said, I really appreciate my colleagues for creating the one of its kind COVID-19 hospital in Nagpur. We could develop this facility in a record time (of only 10 days) because of the painstaking efforts by GMC dean Dr Sajal Mitra, Dr Mohammed Faisal, Dr Pavitra Patnaik, Nagpur Divisional Commisioner Sanjeev Kumar and Nagpur Collector Ravindra Thakare.

The total number of active patients in the city stood at 252 while five succumbed to the virus.  Meanwhile, TMC Commissioner Abhijit Bangar said a ‘death audit’ of patients who died of COVID would be conducted. The TMC has ensured it has additional stock of oxygen concentrators, testing kits, medicines, to name a few. Bangar told HT, “Due to the increasing number of Covid patients, it is necessary for everyone to be alert.”

He added, The number of Covid tests should be increased to stay one step ahead of the disease. As a result, the number of patients is likely to increase due to increased testing. However, as per the ‘test, isolate, treat’ protocol for Covid, it becomes necessary to isolate and treat more and more patients. The testing centres will not remain closed even for a single day. At the same time, more arrangements for testing will be made immediately in public places, markets, railway stations, malls.”
