No.52/DGHS/PH-IV/COVID-19/2020/prsecyhfw/6363-6412 Dated: 01/05/2020

ORDER

It is reported that many doctors, nurses, paramedics and other staff in non­ COVID hospitals are either getting infected or reported as contact to infected person and Medical Directors of respective hospitals are indiscriminately sending them in quarantine either at hotels or their homes for 14 days. This practice is causing unnecessary shortage of doctor & staff at the Hospitals. It seems, it is happening because either hospitals are not following standard SOPs or such persons are not following guidelines prescribed for health care workers.

In view of above, all Medical Directors are directed to obtain written explanation from all such person as how these persons got infected or become a contact in spite of wearing required protective gears, maintaining safe distance and following precautions prescribed for health care workers. Further, Medical Director is required to constitute a team of Doctor to ascertain whether a contact, fulfils the Govt. of India elin es to be declared as the contact of positive patient. –
