He instructed all the Medical Superintendents of the hospitals in the city to take proper care of non-COVID patients just like the COVID-19 patients. Dr Vardhan said, he is receiving complaints regarding denial of treatment to patients suffering from critical ailments other then COVID-19 and who require dialysis or are suffering from heart disease.
He said, such patients should not be turned away as certain procedures like blood transfusion and dialysis can not wait.
He added that we have dedicated COVID-19 facilities in hospitals like AIIMS and Safdarjung, and two dedicated COVID Delhi Government hospitals – LNJP hospital and Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital in the city. He said, the other hospitals are supposed to take care of non- COVID patients as well.
