Update 4th June 2021:
Want beds under government quota? Physical triaging must
Launch of Physical Triaged Covid Patients Hospital Bed Block Platform on CHBMS
Bengaluru city is seeing a gradual decrease in number of fresh Covid 19 cases. The last 4 days, fresh cases are consistently less than 5000 in number.
Till recently almost all triage of covid patients to decide suitability for home isolation, CCC admission and Hospitalisation was exercised telephonically through zonal control rooms or BBMP’s Central War Room. However now physical triage is slowly being adopted as a pre requisite for allotment of Hospital / CCC bed. By making, Physical Triaging as the primary source of patient evaluation over the tele triaging, more rational and optimal allocation of critical care hospital beds could be made.
In accordance, BBMP’s Covid Hospital Bed Management System (CHBMS) has now been upgraded and a detailed Physical Triage Module has been developed and integrated. Physical triage module can now be used at 16 Physical Triage Centres (PTCs) across the 8 zones of the city. These PTCs are fully functional to triage all walk-in patients to be evaluated clinically and accordingly allocate beds thereafter.These PTCs are also equipped with ambulances, which can be used to shift the patients to hospitals. The ambulances can also double up as Mobile Triage Units (MTUs) for doorstep triage of patients, who are unable to visit the PTCs, due to their medical condition.
Each PTC would have 2 doctors and 2 paramedics in each shift, with computer and internet facilities. All PTCs are attached to at least one CCC with oxygen beds. In addition, 26 hospitals are mapped across the zones for beds to be blocked exclusively from the PTCs.
The portal was used on a trial basis at 8 PTCs over the past 3 days to check the functionality. It has been working well and triage centres were able to physically triage 936 patients, of whom 678 were referred for home isolation, 186 were sent to CCCs and 72 were allocated HDU/ICU beds at various hospitals.
BBMP plans to move towards mandatory physical triaging as a pre-requisite for all patients seeking Hospital admissions. An optimal number of physical triage centres will be activated across all assembly constituencies in the low to medium case regime and this would be quickly ramped up in case of any increase in cases.
