The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has formed 11 teams to monitor hospitals dedicated to only treating Covid-19 patients in Dhaka to ensure quality service.

The teams which will directly report to the hospitals and clinics section of DGHS, are expected to start working from Wednesday.

A letter dated May 25 was issued in this regard, signed by DGHS Director (Hospital) Aminul Hasan.

According to DGHS, the 11 teams will supervise a total of 24 public and private hospitals in Dhaka (including two branches of Regent Hospital)  and one in Narayanganj.

Initially, a total of 35 medical college teachers and DGHS officials will be divided into 11 teams. Moreover, all of these teams will have at least one medicine specialists, one anesthesiologist, and a DGHS official in them.

According to sources, the teams will visit the selected hospitals at least once a week to check if all of them have their equipment and other service materials in place for treating people with Covid-19. 

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Dr Aminul Hasan said: “The eleven teams will start their work from Wednesday with the task of ensuring quality service at the hospitals –public and private – dedicated to treating Covid-19 infected people only.”

The 11 teams have been authorized to suggest necessary improvements and modifications if necessary, to the authorities of the concerned hospitals.

They will look into around 27 indicators – including equipment availability, mortality rate, patient satisfaction level, stay duration of patients, adequate oxygen supply and more – to ensure quality and proper healthcare for those who are suffering from the deadly virus.

As of Tuesday, Bangladesh had confirmed 52,445 coronavirus cases with the death toll rising to 709 after 37 new fatalities were reported.

Till now the fast-spreading coronavirus has claimed more than 378,000 lives and infected more than 6,408,000 people globally, according to Worldometer.

As many as 2,935,000 people have recovered from Covid-19, which has spread to 213 countries and territories across the world.
