Rapid response centre set up at Delhi’s Rajiv Gandhi hospital


A Rapid Response Centre (RRC) with oxygen support has been set up in the holding area of Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital here.

The RRC, which was inaugurated by Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Wednesday, has been developed for Covid-19 patients to reduce the waiting period in getting treatment. Earlier, the area was used as a waiting louge for Covid patients.

The centre has 30 beds with critical care facilities and ICU services. All the beds are equipped with oxygen support, while 16 have ventilator support. Along with detected Covid cases, suspect patients can also get admitted to the centre without prior RT-PCR report.
