Almost all the hospitals in Delhi have facilities for children.
Pro. Jaju says that almost all the hospitals in Delhi like LNJP, Acharya Bhikshu, Kalavati Saran, Lady Hardinge, RML, Deendayal Upadhyay, GTB Hospital, Dr. Ambedkar etc. have arrangements for special wards for children. At the same time, there are paediatrics wards in the major hospitals of the central government and regular OPDs are held. In the season of pollution, most of the patients are semi-emergency or OPD. Very few are brought to an emergency. Although some patients need ICU, so many beds are in hospitals. In such a situation, parents can take the child to any government hospital and get treatment.

These facilities are available including beds, oxygen
Chacha Nehru Head of Office Dr. Mamta says that in addition to nebulization of children, there are adequate facilities for medication and beds in all children’s hospitals. At the same time, after the oxygen plant installed in the hospital since Kovid, now it is also sufficient. Therefore, in the season of pollution, there are all arrangements for the children. In Chacha Nehru, many cases also come after being referred. Everyone gets treatment here. The staff here also has a habit of working for a long time. Sometimes it happens that more patients come but if there are no beds or less, then doubling or tripling. In government hospitals, the same effort is made that everyone can get treatment, no one should be sent back.
