Private Hospitals cannot declare dengue: Haryana Health Minister


Private Hospitals cannot declare dengue: Haryana Health Minister

Gurugram: Private Hospitals will not be allowed to declare/confirm a patient suffering from dengue, based on their own test results, a new directive issued by the Haryana Health Minister states.

Tribune reports that Vij stated no private hospital would be allowed to declare a person as suffering from dengue until it was confirmed by a laboratory of a civil hospital in Haryana. With the burden of testing and diagnosis, imminent of government hospitals, the minister also ordered all district hospitals to make elaborate arrangements  for ‘ELISA’ test and set up  machines for conducting dengue test and blood component separators by 31st May, 2017

Besides this, direction has been issued to set up special wards for treatment vector-borne diseases including dengue, malaria and chikungunya with special attention to hospitals in dengue prone areas such as Mewat

The minister also included the AYUSH department in creating awareness for dengue with AYUSH department being directed to organise special camps as per requirement in all districts for the prevention of malaria, dengue, chikungunya and vector-borne disease

  1. It seems to me that this is the typical idiotic government decision designed to waste scarce resources
    The cynic in me suggests that this is perhaps a means to earn fromkickbacks through purchase of testing equipment consumables

    The brilliant,hon,HealtMin will not only burn his fingers but he will also help Doctors to get their Hospitals to burnt down,if not his life,apart from endangering PTS life.
    1.Why the same Elisa test can not be done at Pvt Hospitals ?
    He has to give his reasons
    2. Who is going to collect the blood samples ?
    3.Will the concerned DHO send his personnel for sample collection ?
    He has to accept this responsibility,so many things can go wrong between the collection of sample and obtains results
    To give One simple example,suppose the sample gets hemolysed,due to any reasons,what about the delay in re-collection? who is going to take the responsibility ?
    What if PTts condition deteriorates in the meanwhile ? Whose responsibility will that be ?
    What if the pt dies in the meanwhile ?
    What will happen to the Doctor who is treating the case ?
    Will the Hon Minister accept the responsibility and prevent the
    backlashes ?
    LET THE WISE MAN NOT PLAY WITH PTS LIVES.INSTEAD OF THIS FOOLISH STEP, 1.LET HIM BAN SPOT TESTS,IF HE CAN
    2.LET HIM CAP THE TEST CHARGES OR EVEN BETTER TO DO WILL BE TO SUPPLY THE TEST KITS TO ALL PVT HOSPITALS,FREE OF COST AND SEE THAT THESE TESTS ARE DONE FREE OF COST BY THE HOSPITALS !!
    3.IF HE REALLY FEELS THAT THE ELISA TEST IS SO EXTA ORDINARY THAT PVT HOSPITALS DO NOT POSSESS THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR PERFORMING THIS SIMPLE TEST,LET HIM BAN PVT HOSPITALS FROM HANDLING THE DENGUE FEVER CASES AND MAKE IT MANDATORY FOR ALL PVT HOSP TO REF EVERY SUSPECTED CASES OF DENGUE OR DENGUE- LIKE FEVERS TO THE NEAREST GOVT HOSP.AT LEAST WE WILL HAVE SOME PEACEFUL NIGHTS SLEEP .
