New Delhi: Health Minister J.P Nadda on Thursday inaugurated a 35-room dharamshala here, aiming to provide temporary shelter to the families of patients undergoing treatment at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital (RML).
According to the Hospital, the allotment will be as per standard operating procedures and free of charge.
“The dharamshala can accommodate a total of 88 people. The top floor is earmarked for female attendants. The ground, 1st and 2nd floors will be allotted to male attendants. There is internal communication facility by telephone on each floor of the building,” said a statement by RML hospital.
Nadda said that the services at the complex should be regularly inspected and monitored.
“We erect the hardware but do not pay much attention to the software. The hospital should look at ways and means of making the facilities at the complex self-sustaining,” said Nadda.
The Health Minister stated that the facility should ensure proper sanitation and directed the officials to personally monitor this aspect.
The hospital administration also said that the relatives can make calls within Delhi, free of cost.
