SKIMS opens Drug Counter in COVID Block, extends MRD Counter services at Maternity Hospital


SRINAGAR: The Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Soura has operationalized a specific drug counter in COVID block for the convenience of patients.

Medical Superintendent SKIMS informed that drug counter has been opened and is functional from today.

He said it was a public demand that the IDB/ COVID block should have separate drug counter.  The drug counter will have all required drugs available and it will be convenient for the patients admitted in COVID block who otherwise had to purchase drugs from main pharmacy SKIMS. The services are hoped to bring relief to the COVID patients for drug procurement.

Further, the SKIMS extended its MRD Counter services at Maternity Hospital. The MRD Counter will now remain functional 24×7 for the convenience of patients.

“The MRD Counter will now remain functional round the clock. Initially it was serviceable only upto 4.00 PM and patients were facing lot of difficulties in getting Registration Cards beyond the hours. In response to public demand the administration addressed the issue on priority, it is hoped to bring relief to the patients”, Medical Superintendent SKIMS informed.
