Every Hospital has to have a media cell: Delhi Govt issues orders
New Delhi: The Delhi government on Monday asked the hospitals in the national capital to form a media cell to monitor the social media and news.
The direction from the Delhi Health Department came on Monday after there were reports that there are a large number of social media messages regarding the functioning of state-run hospitals.
"The concerned hospital needs to either rebut the information or take corrective action to avoid re-occurrence of such incidences," the order said.
The Health Department directed the Medical Superintendent, Medical Directors and Director of all hospitals of the Delhi government "create a media cell, who should monitor social media, news media and immediately react to such news or information so that the correct position is presented before people".
