Facing flak on SOPs for parliamentarians : AIIMS withdraws SOP’s

New Delhi : The AIIMS, Delhi administration withdrew a set of standard operating procedures (SOPs) it had issued that included providing a nodal officer to coordinate and facilitate treatment for MPs, a day after facing flak from a section of doctors. Recently, M Srinivas, AIIMS Director has listed the SOPs for outpatient department (OPD), emergency consultation and in-patient hospitalisation for members of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. The SOP further said that the duty officers from the department of hospital administration will be available at the AIIMS control room round-the-clock to coordinate and facilitate arrangements.

The move drew sharp criticism from several associations of doctors who called out the SOP’s “VIP culture” at the premier health institute and forced the AIIMS, Delhi to withdraw the SOP’s.
