District collector Vivek Yadav on Monday inspected a German hanging facility that was being set up in the Tenali agricultural market and said the district administration was preparing to open similar facilities in GGH, Guntur, Infectious Disease Hospital, Guntur and local hospitals in Establish Tenali and Narsaraopet.
“The county council is expanding facilities to ensure people’s lives are saved. We have 9,000 beds in government and private hospitals. Now let’s focus on triaging to make sure beds are only available for critical cases. These German coat hangers are used in a variety of ways, including triaging, intensive care units, and oxygen concentrators. We also completed electrification and maintenance work, ”said Yadav.
He urged officials to ensure uninterrupted oxygen supplies to hospitals, saying that those hospitals should have generators with bed capacity of 50 or more.
Mr Yadav said the county government will take tough action against hospitals that charge exorbitant amounts from patients, adding that action has been taken against some hospitals. For example, a Mangalagiri hospital had withdrawn Aarogyasri Trust money from a patient (non-Aarogyasri) who had been discharged from the hospital and he was informed of a reason for issuance.
Sub Collector, Tenali, Mayura Ashok were present.
