SKIMS Bemina triples Ortho bed capacity to address Bone & Joint Hospital crisis

In the past two days, Dr Rabbani said, 28 major and minor Ortho surgeries were carried out at the Medical College. “The patient care would be hit because we have a 200 bedded Ortho Hospital unavailable at the moment. By doing our bit, we want to help this unprecedented situation,” he said. The Principal said the entire staff of the hospital has been very proactive in expanding the ambit of care. “Patient care is paramount,” he said.

Dr Naseer Ahmed Mir, Professor and Head Department of Orthopedics at SKIMS MC Hospital said 92 Ortho patients were admitted at the hospital currently. “Many of these patients would usually go to B&J Hospital but had nowhere to go after the fire incidents,” he said.
