NEW DELHI:  With increasing number of non-Covid patients being admitted in the emergency ward of AIIMS in the national capital, hospital authorities have suspended routine OPD admissions in general and private wards for two weeks.

"However, routine OPD services to enable patients seek medical advice and counselling, which were recently resumed will continue," said AIIMS Medical Superintendent, Dr D.K. Sharma.

 

According to a circular signed by Dr Sharma, in view of the need to optimise usage of beds for seriously ill, emergency/semi-emergency patients, it has been decided to temporarily stop routine OPD admissions to general wards as well as private wards in AIIMS hospital and all its centres with immediate effect for two weeks.
