Imphal: Chief minister Nongthombam Biren Singh on Tuesday inaugurated a 10-bed ICU ward and tele ICU hub at Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) in Imphal East district.
With such initiatives, patients being treated at ICUs of district hospitals and other tele ICU supported hospitals will be able to access observation by specialist doctors through the tele ICU hub set up at JNIMS.
JNIMS will act as the teleconsultation hub, and it will share expertise and provide handholding support to the doctors in district hospitals in delivery of critical care services in rural areas.
Speaking on the occasion, Biren lauded the team of the 10-bed ICU project for taking up such a useful initiative to provide humanitarian service to the people. He added that the tele ICU would help address, to some extent, the problem faced due to shortage of specialist doctors at health centers of different districts. He appreciated the use of quality equipment and machines for the tele ICU hub at JNIMS.
Stating that health should be the first priority, Biren maintained that there shouldn’t be any compromise on the quality of equipment procured for use in hospitals and health centers and added that the state government would not tolerate this matter.
