4 hospitals found to be mosquito dens 25.7.2014 deccanherald.com
The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has issued challans to four hospitals in its jurisdiction after they were found to be breeding grounds for mosquitoes. The four hospitals are All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Safdarjung Hospital, Ram Manohar Lohiya Hospital (RML) and Lady Hardinge Hospital. These hospitals were found to be breeding sites for aedes mosquito, which causes dengue and anopheles mosquito causing malaria, according to a source in the NDMC. "Challans were issued after teams found that there were breeding grounds for mosquito larvae in these hospitals. This is a regular exercise by the council.

Thirty-two nurses, who had served on contract in civic hospitals, have come out in protest against BMC's latest nurses recruitment policy. BMC is launching a massive recruitment drive on July 25 for taking 887 nurses on board in three medical colleges, 16 peripheral hospitals and, additionally, maternity hospitals in the city. Thirty-two nurses are crying foul that BMC has introduced partial recruitment parameters this time around. "Of 887 posts, 90% are reserved for those applying from BMC-run nursing colleges, ie 799 posts. However, there may not be so many applicants from BMC-run colleges. Only 10% posts (88 seats) are reserved for nurses passing out from other colleges," said an aspiring nurse who had served in 2010-12 in Rajawadi Hospital. The nurses have alleged that BMC has not laid down any rules for recruiting nurses from their own colleges, in terms of a ...
