With conditions, DC allows the reopening of outpatient service and inpatient service at SDM Hospital.

Dharwad: Deputy Commissioner Nitesh Patil has said that the administration has allowed the reopening of outpatient service at the SDM Medical College from December 3 with a few conditions.

The OPD services at the hospital were stopped on November 26, following an outbreak of Covid infection at the medical college.

The DC said that the SDM Medical College authorities had requested the district administration to restart the inpatient and outpatient services. The request was forwarded to the state-level technical committee, and the committee discussed this issue at a meeting on December 2 and recommended restarting the service.

The Deputy Commissioner has allowed the hospital to restart the service with a few conditions. The hospital should follow all the Covid protocols strictly. For the next two months, gatherings such as cultural, social, and sports events should be organized.

The hospital should collect swabs of the patients at IPD and OPD and send them to a government lab for testing, and the government would bear the cost of the testing. Only those fully immunized should be allowed to enter the premises of the hospital.

At the main entrance, the teams should collect the swabs. And administer the Covid vaccine doses for the non-immunized people.

The hostels could be reopened after seven days of the last Covid case being detected. Those who have returned from abroad, particularly from Kerala and Maharashtra, should provide nasopharyngeal swabs for RTPCR testing before being released from institutional quarantine.

The covid negative report, which is not more than 72 hours old, is mandatory for people coming from Kerala and Maharashtra. The hostels would be denotified from the containment zone after 14 days of the detection of the last Covid case, said the DC in the order.
