Delhi High Court to take strict action against hospitals not providing exact information on beds availability

The Delhi High Court on Thursday urged State and Central government to locate all those hospitals which are not providing an actual update of beds available for corona patients.

Two chief justices of a division bench, DN Patel and Prateek Jalan suggest government and hospitals make better communication between each other and said Delhi government to appoint some officials that work dedicatedly to minimise communication gap.

The High Court also said Central government to ensure that if these appointed officials are working efficiently or not otherwise all efforts will go in vain.

In fact, High Court was concerned after amicus curiae Om Prakash found some discrepancies on the websites and mobile app while checking real-time updation of bed availability for covid-19 patients. According to OM Prakash, when he made a call to some hospitals for the availability of beds, their response was not good. He added that one of the hospitals when asked to provide all details, it showed reluctance.

After revealing his identity before staff, they transferred his call to another office and then he gave full details. In the meantime, the High Court lauded efforts of Delhi and Central government to tackle Covid-19 and said to add more ambulances to help covid-19 as well as non-covid-19 patients in Delhi.
