Kashmir administration sets up Covid-19 triage facility at CD hospital

The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Thursday ordered the establishment of a triage facility in the Chest Disease Hospital in Jammu for screening of any coronavirus patient intending to get admitted to healthcare facilities here.

The move has been taken to rationalise the admission of COVID-positive cases in dedicated hospitals under the Directorate of Health Services amid the rise in infections.

The facility will work under the supervision of the hospital medical superintendent and an officer may be tasked with the rationalisation of admission of patients.

The nodal officer shall also dedicate a landline, as well as a mobile number for the facilitation of such patients.
