Chicalim hospital seeks more staff to handle Covid cases | Goa News – Times of India

VASCO: Health officer of Chicalim sub district hospital Dr Anil Umraskar on Tuesday wrote to the directorate of well being providers, highlighting the pressing necessities for the hospital to handle admissions of Covid sufferers.
The well being officer sought extra physicians, nurses, lab technician, driver, X-ray technician, radiologist and multi-tasking staff for the well being facility after it began functioning as a Covid hospital from Monday.
Earlier within the day, in a joint assembly of stakeholders, Vasco MLA Carlos Almeida instructed the well being officer to inform the well being division in regards to the hospital’s necessities.
On the primary day, the hospital witnessed admissions of 20 sufferers, whereas on Tuesday, one more was hospitalised, Umraskar mentioned.
Though the hospital has a capability of 60 beds, it has been introduced down to 30 beds due to Covid SOPs. “The hospital is treating patients with mild symptoms,” he mentioned.
“There is a separate room for a general OPD. It will continue with other regular health checkups of patients, but for regular admission cases, patients will be shifted to Hospicio for treatment,” he mentioned.
The vaccination centre has been shifted to Ravindra Bhavan Baina from Monday. The swab testing will proceed on the sub-district hospital.
