The National Health Mission (NHM) under the Government of India’s award scheme had given one month time to district hospitals to submit corrective measure reports to National Health Mission. The last date is July 20, while the rural health centres was given 10 more days to submit the corrective measures report, health centres’ last date is July 30.
According to sources, the reminders were issued to all district hospitals and Block Medical Officers who are the controlling authority of rural health centres. The Health mission is said to have decided not to extend last date of report submission. As per schedule, one district hospital doctors will go to their adjoining district hospitals for inspection in August.
When their reports is received, the State-level health officers’ team will be sent to those district hospitals and health centres scoring above 70 percent marks on the norms set by the Government of India. On the basis of State’s report a team of senior health officers will come to state to pay surprise inspection of selected district hospitals and rural health centres. The Government of India will select the hospital and health centres for awards to be given on October 2. Last year, the first award of Rs 50 lakhs was won by the District hospital Shivpuri.
It is learnt most of district hospitals did not score above 70 percent marks despite sanctioning additional funds and extra training to the district hospital Civil Surgeons. But the condition of hospitals has not been improved. Recently, a two year girl was died felling from the bed in Berasia tehsil’s Community Health centre, just near the city raising questions over the services at rural health centres. When contacted Dr Pankaj Shukla, Deputy Director, National Health Mission, said the district hospitals was asked to submit quality service report on July 20 and rural health centres were given 10 days more, as they were asked to submit report on July 30, he said.
