No heating arrangement in Kashmir hospitals: DAK

Excelsior Correspondent

Srinagar, Nov 14:  With the temperature dipping below freezing point, Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today said that patients in Kashmir hospitals face huge inconvenience due to lack of heating arrangement.
The DAK president, Dr Nisar-ul-Hassan, said the patients are shivering with cold as heating systems of hospitals are not yet operational. “The heating systems at SMHS, Chest-Disease, Lal Ded, GB Pant and other associated hospitals have not been started yet and patients suffer the consequences,” he said.
Dr Nisar said the bone-chilling cold in hospitals is making life difficult for ailing patients. “Cold conditions increase mortalities and morbidities in patients. Hospitals expose vulnerable patients to the risk of frigid conditions. Cardiac and Stroke patients in hospitals are at increased risk of death as cold thickens blood and constricts the arteries,” he said.
