Government Hospital opens its fever desk


A special fever desk was inaugurated by Health Secretary J Radhakrishnan at the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital and it would function every day till the fevers caused by monsoon shows a downward trend, Hospital Dean R Vimala said.

People with fever could get themselves checked and procure medicines here. This would be a one-stop shop for treating fevers as treatment and medicines could be obtained here, Dr Vimala said.

If the patient’s condition was found to be serious and requiring more than basic treatment, doctors at the help desk would suggest admission in the hospital.

Meanwhile, personnel attached to the GH, said they have a regular fever ward in the hospital which was a 15-bedded unit. However, keeping in view the chances of fever cases increasing due to the recent rains, they have opened exclusive fever wards for male and female patients for the past one month. While the male fever patient ward has 25 beds, about 20 beds have been provided in the female ward.
