New Delhi: In view of the complaints of shortage of medicines and poor facilities in government hospitals, the Delhi government has asked all hospitals to provide data, twice a month, on the availability of medicines and consumables and the working condition of equipments.

The information is to be provided by the medical superintendent (MS) of each hospital to the chief secretary on the 1st and 15th of every month.

 

On the basis of the data provided, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will rate the performance of hospitals and an action would be taken against medical superintendents if hospitals were found lacking in any of the three areas.

A Delhi government report had recently found that less than half of the required medicines are available in some hospitals in the national capital. Following this, Mr Kejriwal directed the chief secretary to ensure the availability of these medicines at the earliest. “In a meeting convened around ten days ago by the chief secretary, he asked all the hospitals under the Delhi government to give percentage availability of medicines,” said an official.
