Sethi Colony hops strengthens facilities for non-Covid child patients | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: The government-run Satellite Hospital at Sethi Colony will act as an extended arm of JK Lon Hospital for non-Covid children in case the third wave hits and kids and get affected by it.
Health minister Raghu Sharma, who along with local MLA Rafeek Khan on Saturday inspected the preparations being made for third wave at Satellite Hospital said, “Better medical facilities are being provided by strengthening infrastructure of all children hospitals in the state.”
Satellite Hospital will remain a non-Covid hospital and it will provide treatment to patients suffering from diseases other than Covid. The facility has 125 beds out of which 100 are for under-18 children and 25 are for mothers of babies and pregnant women.
The hospital has 27-30 beds for critical care including PICU, NICU and SNCU. “In an emergency, the number of beds for critical care can be increased to 125,” said Sharma.
An oxygen generation plant with a capacity of 400 litres per minute is being set up at the hospital. The facility has a line of centralised oxygen plant. There will be no shortage of oxygen in the hospital.
Adarsh Nagar MLA Rafeek Khan said by making necessary arrangements such as ICUs and ventilators in this hospital, patients need not have to go to big hospitals such as SMS or RUHS and they can be treated at the local level.
Since non-Covid patients from JK Lon Hospital may be shifted to Satellite Hospital, the health department is ensuring proper availability of oxygen. “As many as 90 oxygen concentrators have been provided to the hospital, out of which 75 have capacity of 5litres/minute and 15 have capacity of 10 litres per minute,” said Dr Jagdish Singh, hospital superintendent.
