The district Civil Hospital in the city, which is located near Sadar Bazaar, will soon have new LCD screens to monitor various activities that will facilitate improved and better health care to patients.

The move will have particularly those from the lower strata of the population, who have in the past complained of delay and laxity in service.

These LCDs will be used to monitor the OPD section and keep a tab on the functioning of the hospital, including the services being delivered to patients. The civil hospital has also received an ultrasound machine and a digital x-ray machine from a private company.

To improve the quality of delivery in the district hospital, which is frequented by thousands of patients, the government had facilitated the donation of LCD screens as well as other equipment. LCDs were received by the hospital around 15 days ago.

A hospital official said that they are working on the installation of the machines and soon these would be made operational. The screens will start functioning within a week, however, the ultrasound machine and the digital x-ray machine will have to wait for sometime before these are used to serve the patients.

Most residents in Gurgaon have to depend on private labs for tests but with the new machines, this dependence will decrease.

When questioned, the principal medical officer (PMO) of the civil hospital Kanta Goel, said that the new equipment would help in improving the quality of health care and service to patients. “I will expedite the process so things can be managed at the earliest,” she said.
