The general OPD was suspended after the nationwide lockdown announced on March 24
The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Rishikesh has decided to restart its OPD facility by the end of this month. For OPD, the patients would have to register themselves online on the website ors.gov.in.
The general OPD was suspended at AIIMS Rishikesh after the nationwide lockdown announced on March 24. However, special OPDs for emergency, telemedicine OPD and screening of Covid patients continued to function.
The Director of AIIMS Rishikesh, Ravikant said that the general OPD would be opened in view of the problems of common patients.
“Keeping in mind the difficulties of common patients, a safe and convenient system is being developed to start general OPD,’’ he said.
The Dean of AIIMS Hospital Administration, Dr UB Mishra said that all aspects like proper arrangement of doctors’ seating area, waiting area for patients and their attendants and other safety measures are being taken into consideration. “The norms of social distancing would be strictly followed. Initially, limited patients will be seen. Later this number will be gradually increased,’’ he said.
