Delhi Government Hospitals Reserve Beds for Heatstroke Patients Amid Intense Heatwave

National Desk, 27th May: In response to the ongoing heatwave conditions in the capital, Delhi government-run hospitals have implemented proactive measures to ensure the well-being of residents. Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj announced on Monday that 26 government hospitals will each reserve two beds specifically for heatstroke patients, while LNJP Hospital will set aside five beds for such cases.

This initiative is part of the government’s broader efforts to address the health challenges posed by the extreme heatwave currently affecting the city. Minister Bharadwaj emphasized the critical need for adequate medical care for individuals suffering from heat-related illnesses during this period.

The announcement came after a meeting between Bharadwaj and Health department officials, where they also addressed the recent tragic incident at an east Delhi neonatal hospital, where seven newborns lost their lives in a fire.

By reserving these beds, Delhi government hospitals are demonstrating their commitment to providing timely and effective medical assistance to those impacted by the heatwave, prioritizing public health and safety during these challenging weather conditions.
