Chandigarh, September 26
The Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) has started creating a pool of laboratory technicians to deal with staff crisis induced by Covid-19.
Previously, various department of the institute were asked to identify laboratory technicians (below the age of 50 years, without any pre-existing chronic illness and not pregnant) who could be deputed on Covid duty anytime.
The institute had earlier told the departments: “It is not feasible for this office to identify whether any technician has a pre-existing chronic illness or if a female technician is pregnant. It is requested to voluntarily identify and submit the list of such laboratory technicians from your department (preferably male).” However, only a few departments had provided the authorities with the list of technicians.
Now, the institute has again requested the departments to submit the names of at least two technicians each in three days.
Dr Ashok, PGIMER spokesperson, said: “We are creating a pool of laboratory technicians for future exigency. We were informed about the pregnant status or chronic illness of technicians, who could be deputed on Covid duty. Thus, we have again asked the departments to spare some workforce on a voluntary basis.” — TNS
