The Railways has come up with an alarm system in its coaches-turned-isolation wards for Covid-19 patients here in Shakurbasti.
A display board with light and sound connection has been installed in the other corner of the coach that will let the doctor and medical staff know about any call by the patient
In case of emergency, as soon as the patient uses this alarm system, the red light outside the box will light up, apart from making a loud noise.
Simultaneously, the information will reach the display board in the doctors’ coach along with the coach (ward) number. The medical staff will thus be able to immediately attend the patient in an emergency.
Chief Public Relations Officer of Northern Railway, Deepak Kumar said that during inspection of these coaches, General Manager of North Central Railway, Rajiv Chaudhary suggested installing alarm system in each of the coaches.
