Hospital management committee of District Hospital Dimapur (DHD) has informed that the hospital has decided to restart providing non-COVID essential health care services besides providing the COVID-19 services starting September 21, 2020.

In a press release, the medical superintendent (MS) COVI D-19 Hospital Dimapur stated that the Flu Corner would be operational from the new designated site in COVID block. 

According to MS, the registration for the essential services (non-COVID) would be carried out from the new designated registration counter. 

The release stated that screening and safety measures of all the patients would be strictly implemented according to the government guidelines and standard operating procedure in order to reduce the potential risk of exposure to workforce and to ensure the safety of all the patients and attendants. It also stated that services provided to the patients and patients requiring operations would be strictly on priority basis for the time being considering the limited number of beds available due to separation of COVID and non-COVID blocks. Further, ART plus Centre temporarily located at MACROFED Building, opposite fire brigade station Dimapur, would start rendering services from the designated site in DHD.

District Mental Health Programme temporarily functioning in Urban Public Health Centre (UPHC) Duncan Bosti Dimapur would also start rendering services from the designated site in DHD.

In view of shortage of manpower, the hospital informed that the 24-hour duty staffs on rotation would attend to all the patients seeking for essential or emergency services from the designated site in non-COVID block.

All patients seeking medical services are required to present with identification proof to ascertain the place of origin as precautionary measures due to ongoing COVID -19 pandemic.

The patient would be accompanied by only two attendants without any exception.

All patients and attendants would strictly follow the safety protocols to check the spread of COVID-19 infection (wearing of mask at all times, social distancing, hand washing/use of hand sanitizer).
