By breaking the process in simple steps, the BMC has created a graded process to provide effective care for COVID patients.
Buzzing with calls round the clock, the COVID war rooms set up by BMC in all its municipal wards have become key decelerators of the plummeting infections in the city. Through this bifurcated system, a number of designated officials at these centres are regularly addressing the concerns of COVID positive or symptomatic individuals. With the help of daily records of all infected citizens, the authorities maintain a vigilant check on their health condition and work actively to provide the required assistance.
Alert & attentive workers assuring maximum aid for the COVID patients!
Functional 24*7, the COVID war rooms are managed by a staff of teachers working in three shifts of eight hours each. The main objective of the facilities is to ensure primary care and guidance to home isolated COVID patients. In alignment with this, the BMC has requested all COVID affected individuals in the city or those having symptoms to contact the war rooms before seeking help from the hospital. Apart from catering to the demands for hospital beds, the conscientious workers at these centres assure all the possible aid to the infected citizens in their journey to sound recovery.
Firstly, the patients are contacted by the officials to know about their symptoms and comorbidities. After that, a team of workers visit individuals who are over 60 or with comorbidities. If the facilities for home quarantine are not available, they are admitted at institutional quarantine centres. In this process, hospitalisation comes at the last stage, only when the patient shows severe symptoms. By breaking the process into simple steps, the BMC has created a graded process to make sure that effective care and treatment reaches every COVID-hit individual.
