Set up special wards within hospitals for COVID-19 management in states, UTs: Union Health Ministry

Union Health Ministry on Friday advised all Central Ministries to issue instructions to the hospitals under their control or their public sector undertakings (PSU) to set up exclusively dedicated hospital wards or separate blocks within the hospitals for Covid Care in all states and UTs, similar to the last year.

The advisory also tells to provide details of such dedicated hospitals and special blocks to the public.

Hospitals should have separate entry and exit points for the management and treatment of Covid-19 cases.

Coordination with the respective health departments of States and Union Territories and their respective District Health Administrations is also advised.

In a letter written to the Central Ministries, the Union Health Secretary has reiterated that the present situation of the sudden surge in the COVID cases across the country calls for similar supportive action as last year from every quarter.

Additionally, these wards should be equipped to provide all supportive and ancillary services including Oxygen supported beds, ICU beds, ventilators and specialised Critical Care Units, laboratory services, imaging services, kitchen and laundry among others along with a dedicated health workforce.
