Registration of two hospitals cancelled for failing to inform NMC about Dengue patients

Nagpur: In spite of directives to all hospitals to inform NMC about the Dengue cases and details of patients, many hospitals in the city fail to provide the details to NMC authorities.  This causes the problems and hindrances for the authorities to take preventive measures. Before issuing the registration, the owners of the hospitals have to submit an affidavit assuring to provide information about various ailments and within the set time-limit.

However, many hospital authorities purposely or consciously hide or conceal information to be provided to the NMC officials.  Immediately after verifying and ascertaining about a particular patient suffering from Dengue, these doctors inform the relatives, kith and kin that the patient is suffering from dengue, causing rumors and panic among the residents.

Having failed to provide information about Dengue patients to NMC, on the orders of the NMC Commissioner, the Health Officer (Sanitation) Dr Ashok Urkude cancelled the registration of the Manorama Hospital situated at Teenal Square, Itwari and  another Hospital situated in  Dhantoli on October 18, 2014, through a notice.
