State hospitals to get security: Chib
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Sep 9: Minister for Medical Education R S Chib on Friday said that the government would launch a pilot project for ensuring fool proof security arrangements in Government Medical Colleges and tertiary care hospitals so that the medicos and para-medics discharge their duties hassle free.
The Minister while speaking at a high level meeting convened to review the security scenario in health institutions, Chib said, “The security in two health institutions in Jammu and four in Srinagar would be strengthened in phase-I. Other vulnerable hospitals will be covered subsequently.”
He said the objective was to replace the present security system of private security agencies as it had not served the purpose effectively.
Calling upon people to provide full cooperation to the hospital staff while availing medical services, the Minister said it would not only be in the interest of hospital administration but patients care also.
A committee comprising Administrative Secretaries of Home, Planning, Finance and Medical Education department was also constituted to study the pros and cons of the pilot project.
Minister of State for Home Nasir Aslam Wani, who was also present in the meeting assured that Home Department would deploy adequate number of police personnel required in tertiary care and associate hospitals of Government Medical Colleges both at Jammu and Srinagar.
He said his department would depute one senior Police Officer to study the requirement of security personnel in each hospital.
Among others, Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister B B Vyas, Commissioner Secretary, Health and Medical Education G A Peer, besides Principal, Government Medical College, Srinagar Dr Qazi Masood and other senior officers of the Medical department were also attended the meeting.
