Average Time to Find A Bed in Hyderabad Hospitals

The situation and circumstances of being able to find an oxygen or ventilator bed in Hyderabad, or the entire country, for that matter, is very slim. What makes the situation a lot more complex is that there is no reliable service that keeps the city residents up to date on the real-time availability of beds in the city's various hospitals. 

The family of a 70-year-old lady took five hours to find a bed, despite the woman's oxygen saturation levels dropping to a dangerous level of 80. And to put it mildly, this family has been a lot luckier than so many other families. 

A volunteer from Twitter, who keeps calling several hospitals in the city every day - private and government, to check the status of bed availability says that it usually takes 10-12 hours to know if a bed is available or not. He noted that most hospitals do not have an open bed, while most hospitals remain busy for most of the day. He also said that several hospitals do not even respond to calls. The volunteer said that while some hospitals revert when there's availability, those in need have to be quick to take the bed, as beds are usually occupied within minutes of getting vacant. 

On the whole, it isn't easy to give a definitive time period to the time period within which one can find a bed in the city, as there's a massive demand for beds.
