Nagpur: COVID-19 patients to now get beds at hospitals through control room only

COVID-19 patients in Nagpur district will now be able to get beds at private and government hospitals and COVID-19 care centres (CCC) through the Central Control room (CCR), which will work 24×7. Nagpur Municipal Corporation and Nagpur District Collectorate both decided to start the CCR collectively after directives from the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court.

Hospitals and CCCs have been asked to refrain from admitting patients directly. However, for some reason, if the patient directly lands at the hospital cannot be denied treatment. In this case, hospital will have to start treatment and inform CCR.

The control room will also help patients in getting essential drugs and oxygen supply. Special teams have been formed and they will monitor supply and allocation and supply of these to the hospitals.

Those seeking admission of a COVID-19 patient will have to contact CCR at the landline on 0712-2567021 or at Whatsapp on 7770011537, 7770011472. Within half an hour CCR will evaluate the patient and decided whether the patient needs a bed. Software at CCR will show the availability of beds and will also reserve bed. The patient will get two hours to reach the hospital failing which the bed will go back into the vacant pool.

Lack of initiative by the authorities amid the rising COVID-19 cases in the district and subsequent shortage of beds have forced citizens to come forward and help each other secure beds. Nonetheless, there have been countless reports of patients not getting beds at a hospital in times, thereby resulting in death. CCR, if managed efficiently, will surely be able to help such patients.
