Delhi government has decided to immediately increase 795 beds in the national capital by granting provisional registration certificates on a temporary basis to 48 new private hospitals and nursing homes for three months, on the condition that they will only admit fever and Dengue patients till further orders.
The Department of Health, on directions from Health Minister Mr Satyendar Jain, issued the order which stated that the concerned hospital authority will have to ensure that only medically sick patients and fever cases suspected of having Dengue and its complications may be admitted in hospital. It further said that keeper of the hospital has to ensure that there is adequate number of required manpower, equipment and other accessories are stocked and available to take care of admitted patients.
The tariff of these temporary beds will be 50% less than the respective hospital's specified charges for the lowest category of economy category patients. The Department has made it clear none of the hospitals granted temporary registration will conduct any OT & Labour Room procedures till these are inspected by the competent licensing authorities and are granted regular clearance.
