Srinagar, July 9: Authorities at Government Medical College Srinagar have designated several wards at SMHS Hospital for COVID-19 patients.

“Isolation facility for COVID patients functional in Drug De-Addiction Centre SMHS hospital, COVID facility in disaster and paid rooms shall run as per routine. That in case the department of Medicine shall face dearth of beds while admitting patients, the department shall accommodate the patients in Ward-19 & 20 in coordination with HOD Surgery.”
That staff deployed in various areas of SMHS Hospital in view of COVID-19 shall not be displaced without the prior consent of HOD Medicine/ Surgery and MS SMHS, it says.
The MS SMHS Hospital has been directed to take all measures to avoid intermingling of COVID and non-Covid patients and their attendants.
