BHOPAL: All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhopal, will start treatment of non-Covid patients on June 14. AIIMS sources, confirmed the news, said that the decision had been taken following a meeting of the Union health ministry and the AIIMS director, Dr Sarman Singh, regarding the resumption of treatment facilities for non-Covid patients at all AIIMS units, including the one in Bhopal. Union health minister Dr Harshvardhan was also present at the meeting.
The facilities for non-Covid patients at AIIMS, Bhopal, such as the out-patientsí department (OPD), surgeries and physiotherapy, will start in a phased manner.
Initially, only a limited number of patients will be attended to at the OPD. However, during this time, the facilities for treatment of Covid patients will also continue. Tokens will be given to fewer people, both online and offline, so that there is no overcrowding and there is no risk of the infection spreading.
In fact, in April, after the number of corona patients increased, surgeries of non-Covid patients were discontinued, following which the OPD for non-Covid patients was also closed. However, facilities were operational for emergency patients and they were also being operated upon. The picture will be clear within a couple of days about how the OPD and other facilities will resume operations.
