Chib stresses on foolproof security in hospitals
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 4: Minister for Medical Education RS Chib Thursday said that foolproof security in the hospitals was imperative for their smooth operation.
The security, he said, will allow doctors and paramedics to discharge their duties freely.
Chairing a high level meeting convened to review the security arrangements in associated hospitals of Government Medical Colleges in Jammu and Kashmir, the Minister said the Home Department has been requested to deploy adequate number of security personnel in these tertiary care hospitals so that the staff does not feel any insecurity while discharging their duties.
“This arrangement is being done in the best interests of hospital care,” he said. “It will enable the hospital authorities to regulate the entry of attendants which will be useful for carrying out an effective patient care.”
Chib said that the uncontrolled entry of the attendants comes in the way of medicos and paramedics for discharging their duties effectively and also the patient care suffers a lot. “The existing system of security through private agencies has not proved effective. Hence there is a need to replace the existing security system,” he said, directing Principals of both the Medical Colleges to work out the requirement of security personnel which should be on the reasonable basis.
Minister of State for Home Nasir Aslam Wani and Minister of State for Medical Education Javid Ahmad Dar also participated in the discussion.
Wani asked the Principal Secretary, Home Department to depute one senior Police Officer to study the requirement of security personnel in each hospital.
The Minister called upon the people to provide full cooperation to the hospital staff while availing medical services. He said any problem with regard to any deficiency in the treatment system should be brought to the notice of superintendent of the concerned hospital.
