Hospitals need better communication, ambulances: SP Traffic
Srinagar, Nov 17: “Hospitals need better communication with sophisticated network of ambulances to save lives at the time of emergency situation including trauma and natural disaster,” observers said Saturday at a mega mock drill organized by the Civil Society Forum Kashmir (CSFK) in association with the Traffic Department and Management of City Hospitals.
The ambulance with many invitees including policemen, medicos and journalists onboard drove from GB Pant Hospital towards Bone and Joints Hospital via SMHS Hospital.
The SP Traffic Srinagar, Haseeb-ul-Rehman, who was also in the ambulance said “We did not receive any call from any hospital till now. Mock drill is the first experience for us to react to the emergency situation.”
“I appeal every hospital including district hospitals to coordinate with us to save lives on board ambulances,” SP Traffic said.
The CSFK General Secretary said: “The drill was done to assess the preparedness of the traffic department and city hospitals to react to the emergency situation after receiving a call from the concerned hospital.”
The traffic department had recently decided to coordinate with the hospitals associated with the Directorate of Health Services, Kashmir (DHSK), Government Medical College, Srinagar and SK Institute of Medical Sciences, Soura to make the journey of ambulances hassle-free.
