Prayagraj: At a time when a large number of Covid patients have been struggling to find oxygen cylinders in different hospitals of the city, including both government and private hospitals, authorities of Swaroop Rani Nehru (SRN) and Tej Bahadur Sapru hospital, also called as Beli hospital, promise a better future. The administration has decided that patients of these two hospitals would be provided with life-saving oxygen, not through the present system but oxygen pipelines.
It has been decided to install the network of pipelines using which the oxygen would be provided to the patients at their bedside itself. Ward number 4, 15 and 16 at SRN and 112 beds at Beli hospital would be provided with an oxygen pipeline. At SRN, the work would be done for Rs 13 lakhs while at Beli, the oxygen gas pipeline would be installed for Rs 41.5 lakh. PWD has invited online tenders for these works till May 6.
“The tenders have been floated and we hope that once the tender is allotted to the selected agency, the work of laying the pipeline will be completed within a week”, said chief medical superintendent of Beli hospital, Dr Kiran Malik.
