GOA: The new South Goa District hospital that began functioning as a covid hospital since Saturday evening has been facing teething problems, sources in the health department said. Though the hospital has started admitting “step down” patients from ESI hospital, sources said it will take some time for all the administrative and medical processes to be streamlined.
“It’s a new construction, and so all the facilities need to be tried and tested. We have geared up to face the challenges that a newly-constructed structure is likely to throw up. There are issues concerning the plumbing system, the toilets, etc but they will be addressed as and when they are noticed,” a senior medical officer said. The generator system is also on a test mode, and so are most other amenities, it was informed.
