Work intensified at new dedicated Covid-19 hospital in Jaipur | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: Grappling with the sudden spurt in Covid-19 cases, the state government started work for vacating Jaipuria hospital along with intensifying preparation to develop it as a dedicated Covid-19 hospital on Saturday.
Currently, the number of active cases of Jaipur are more than 4500, while Covid-19 patients from other nearby districts also come to avail the healthcare facilities of the Pink City.
At the Jaipuria hospital, situation in Malviya Nagar assembly constituency, the pregnant women and women related to pregnancy were undergoing treatment and now they have been shifted to Mahila Chikitsalaya, while the patients undergoing treatment for other ailments and diseases, have been shifted to Sawai Man Singh (SMS) hospital to make space for Covid-19 patients.
The state government has declared Jaipuria hospital as a dedicated Covid-19 hospital, but it is yet to be prepared for Covid-19 treatment. The work for expansion of the oxygen pipelines network in the hospital has been started so that Covid-19 patients get the facility of high flow oxygen at their beds. While the beds in the ICUs are also being prepared as per the requirement of the Covid-19 patients.
Jaipuria hospital will be the second government-run dedicated Covid-19 hospital of the city apart from RUHS hospital. The entire load of the patients was on RUHS hospital, which has been making adjustments for accommodating as many patients as it can but the patients have increased in such a number that the government has to develop another dedicated Covid-19 hospital, said a senior health department official.
Chief medical health officer Jaipur-I Dr Narrottam Sharma is involved in developing the facilities at Jaipuria hospital for Covid-19 patients. “Initially, we will have 110 beds which will have the facilities for high flow oxygen. Besides that, we will have 20 beds in the ICUs for the Covid-19 patients with serious complications and critical patients. Apart from that, there will be 200 separate beds for the Covid-19 patients with moderate symptoms,” said Dr Sharma.
The state government has issued orders of deploying more than 60 doctors, who were awaiting posting orders. They will be deployed at Jaipuria hospital for Covid-19 patient’s treatment.
However, the state government claimed that they will increase the number of beds to 500 for Covid-19 patients. Since, RUHS hospital has become crowded with Covid-19 patients, the state government has decided to create another dedicated Covid-19 hospital. At RUHS hospital, 40% patients admitted are those who are brought from other parts of the state. The RUHS hospital is the hope for not only the city’s Covid-19 patients but also for the patients from other parts of the state such as Bikaner, Sikar, Jhunjhunu, Bharatpur, Dausa and Sawai Madhopur.
