Haryana plans MoU with NABH to improve health facilities

Haryana Government would soon sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Accreditation Board of Hospital (NABH) under which global standard health facilities would be provided to patients in 84 civil hospitals of the State. Health Minister, Anil Vij on Friday said that the NABH would make a comparison between the health facilities available in state hospitals with those available in global standard hospitals and submit a report. Ways will be found to provide international level health facilities, he added. Qualitative improvement in health facilities during the tenure of present government has led to 20 per cent increase in OPD patients in government hospitals, said he  while talking to the mediapersosn in Kaithal. He said that a special training course for radiologists would be started to fill up the posts lying vacant in hospitals. 
After completion of the course, they would be deputed in government hospitals. Vij said that samples of Hepatitis-C patients would be collected at all district civil hospitals and medicines would be made available to them. The government has been taking significant steps to provide medicines to Hepatitis-C patients free of cost. The facility of ultrasound machines and Tele-ECG would be made available at primary health centres. Facilities of MRI, CT Scan and dialysis are being provided in civil hospitals at district headquarters, he added.The Health Minister also reviewed records of the ambulance vehicles deployed at the Civil Hospital, Kaithal, and found that one ambulance had been in the workshop for 15 days. There was no official record of another ambulance being on duty or on a call, but it was not seen on the premises. It was also found that four new ambulances had not been insured. He ordered investigation into these irregularities.
