231 hospitals slapped notice for not disclosing data of patients with COVID like symptoms
Chennai: 231 hospitals have received notices from Greater Chennai Corporation for not disclosing data of those patients who have been treated for flu-like symptoms and COVID-19 patient discharges.
Ever since the outbreak of the pandemic, the authorities have invoked strict actions against the hospitals which disregarded the guidelines and protocols determined by the authorities. A few months ago, a private hospital near Seelanaickenpatty had to cough up Rs 25000 after SMC officials found that the facility was reportedly disposing of medical waste without adhering to the government norms.
Several private hospitals have come under the radar of Salem Municipal Corporation (SMC) for flouting several government guidelines on disposal of medical waste and maintaining COVID appropriate behaviour.
