The State government sanctioned 130 oxygen beds, an oxygen plant, ten ventilator beds, and an X-ray machine to the Golconda hospital. This has happened after media reports highlighting the woes of patients and several representations to the State Chief Secretary and Principal Secretary, Health, about the need for improving infrastructure at Golconda Area Hospital.
There were reports such as Golconda Hospital starved of funds; patients hit hard were published in the media highlighting the plight of patients due to lack of proper facilities owing to fund crunch. The State government immediately took notice of the issue and provided the medical equipment to the hospital, and these facilities are soon to be inaugurated.
Karwan MLA Kausar Mohiuddin, along with the Superintendent of the Golconda hospital, Regional Medical Officer, and a team of doctors, inspected the emergency and the oxygen-bed wards on Monday.
According to the MLA, very soon, the new facility will be inaugurated and will be available for the patients.
