LNEW DELHI – When a team constituted by the Union Home Minister inspected private hospitals and nursing homes in the national capital, to check whether they were following mandatory COVID-19 protocols, it was found that there were grave violations in some cases. The patients who were admitted with the infection were not being treated in accordance with the Centre’s medical guidelines. The team found that these hospitals were administering their own therapies and were only partly complying with the laid down protocols, forcing the authorities to press stricter regulations and tighter monitoring of such facilities. Probe team findings “In the discharge policy prescribed by MoHFW, only severe categories of admitted cases are required to be tested using RT–PCR technique prior to discharge. However, it was noted that all private hospitals inspected were testing every admitted COVID-19 patient using RT– PCR technique prior to discharge,” the Hindustan Times quoted the report as saying.
