Rawalpindi Medical College Security plan finalised

Rawalpindi:Plan to give maximum-security cover to visitors at the allied hospitals in the prevalent critical law and order situation has almost been finalised on Saturday.

A meeting chaired by Principal Rawalpindi Medical College and In-charge Allied Hospitals Professor Dr Mohammad Mussadiq Khan Saturday deliberated upon how the allied hospitals, doctors’ hostels of RMC and nurses’ hostels of the three nursing schools at the allied hospitals could be made more secure.

Top officials at administrations of the hospitals, however, told to ‘The News’ that implementation of the security plan discussed in the meeting would take another few days.

Medical superintendents of the three hospitals including Holy Family Hospital, Benazir Bhutto Hospital and District Headquarters Hospital, Principals of the three nursing schools at allied hospitals, administration officer of RMC and wardens of doctors’ hostels at RMC attended the meeting.

The meeting decided that every hospital would have a single entry and exit point. The boundary walls of the hospitals would be erected higher and barbed wire would be installed at the walls. Hand searching of all persons entering the hospitals would be made possible and visitors’ cards would be issued to visitors at the allied hospitals, said acting medical superintendent at the DHQ hospital Dr Ijaz Sohail while talking to ‘The News’.

He said that the meeting also decided to make possible screening of all visitors with the help of metal detectors, while of vehicles with mirror. “Every vehicle entering the hospitals’ premises would be issued entry pass/ticket, however, the hospitals would charge no fee for the purpose,” he said.

He said that the hospitals would make presence of security staff possible in the inward sections. “It has been planned that a few staff members would be deputed to keep watch on visitors in all the three shifts.”

To a query, Dr Ijaz claimed that most of the security measures discussed in the meeting have already been implemented.

Dr Mussadiq, when contacted by ‘The News’, said that the hospitals and allied premises of RMC have been facing shortage of staff and implementation of security measures might take a few more days. “We have decided to hire additional security personnel from security service providers.”

He said that it is not possible for the allied hospitals to stop entry of vehicles to the hospitals’ premises as it would cause a permanent traffic jam on Murree Road and on roads leading to DHQ hospital in Raja Bazaar.

“We will, however, try to take maximum possible security measures to make hospitals, nurses’ and doctors’ hostels safer for the staff and visitors,” he claimed.
