AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu expressing his shock over the Guntur incident where a newborn died after being bitten by rats, “It was disturbing and unacceptable” the Chief Minister said.
At a meeting on general health, women and child welfare at the Secretariat recently, Naidu proposed committee to standardise healthcare services across the
State and evolve a set of tests that patients could undergo in government hospitals.
“I want the infrastructure to be upgraded in all hospitals and a visible change within three months. There cannot be a compromise on hygiene or sanitation in hospitals,” he warned.
To monitor quality of the services in hospitals, the CM directed officials to appoint an RDO-cadre officer as an administrator.
“In addition to this, I want every medical facility to be geo-tagged and live data entered into the system,” he added and also uraged the officials to rope in engineering college students to train field workers.
