New Delhi: Controversy has arisen over a report of the Oxygen Audit Committee constituted by the Supreme Court in Delhi. The committee’s report claimed that the Delhi government demanded 4 times more oxygen than it needed. In the same report, four hospitals have also been mentioned about which it has been said that despite having less beds in these hospitals, excessive use of oxygen which seems to be wrong. These four hospitals are Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital at Civil Lines, Liferays Hospital at Tulgalakabad, ESIC Model Hospital in Rohini and Singhal Hospital at Palam Colony. The team of ABP News spoke to 3 out of these 4 hospitals. All the three hospitals expressed surprise when their names appeared in the report and said that what was said in the report was wrong.
Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital-Civil Lines
Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital, Civil Lines, Delhi has expressed surprise over the name appearing in the Oxygen Audit Committee report. According to information received from Sunita Meena, Medical Superintendent of the hospital, Aruna Asif Ali Hospital is a non-covid hospital and the system of MMO (Liquid Medical Oxygen) being talked about in the report is not in the hospital.
MS Sunita Meena of the hospital told ABP News over the phone, “This report is wrong. Our hospital is non-covid, never had a covid hospital. The common patients who are admitted only had their oxygen demand. Our hospital’s report in the report It is surprising for us to be named. I don’t know what is the basis for this. So we do not want to say anything on it right now. What has been talked about in this report and on which all this issue We don’t have any plant or storage facility. We don’t even come under that oxygen category. We don’t know how our hospital got its name. We never did any oxygen demand. “
Liferays Hospital- Tughlakabad
One of these 4 hospitals is Liferays Hospital in Tughlakabad. The owner of the hospital, Gaurav is not in Delhi at this time but he spoke to us on the phone and put forward his side. According to Gaurav, “Our hospital was approved for Kovid on April 27, at that time we got permission for 12 beds. On May 10, we got the registration number of the hospital. During this on 5th and 6th we had requested the SDM that Oxygen should be given to us in some way. We gave him a letter on our letter head, after which he gave us the number of a dealer named Vaibhav, contacted him. After that we got some oxygen arranged from there. We took oxygen till 12-14 May We took it from there, after that the patients decreased completely.All the details of the oxygen we have taken are available on our portal.
Gaurav said, “The things said in the report are baseless. There were 12 beds in the entire hospital, at that time there was a shortage. Till then we did not have the registration, so we had requested that the treatment of Kovid should be given to us. Whatever The oxygen we have taken is on-record. Oxygen demand was different according to the flow per patient. If we did not get the same demand as we had kept, then where would we keep the extra. In the crisis, we had arranged the oxygen concentrator ourselves “
Singhal Hospital- Palam Colony
Ravi Varshney, the manager of the Singhal Hospital mentioned in the report, said that the system of liquid medical oxygen being talked about in the report is not present in our hospital. Gaurav Varshney said, “What is being said in the report of the Oxygen Audit Committee is completely wrong because there is no arrangement for LMO (Liquid Medical Oxygen) tank and there is no oxygen plant. Our hospital staff themselves go to oxygen. Was bringing cylinders to the plant. They also could not get more than what they used to get 2 or 3 cylinders because they used to say that our name is not in the Kovid Hospital portal. When our name came from May 1, 2021, after that we got some cylinders. At that time in April we had 12-13 patients admitted in which 5-7 patients were on high flow oxygen due to which the demand of oxygen was high and we were not able to manage with 1-2 cylinders, then the attendants of the patients told us. They were giving cylinders by bringing them. These allegations are false.”
