The state government will spend around 2.85 crore for the project so that the pregnant women are made aware of the steps they should take for a safer delivery. It was learnt that the 52 inches LED televisions will be installed at the departments of the various hospitals.
Each ward of the hospital will get two LED televisions. One will be set up outside while the other will be installed inside the Gynaecology and Obstetrics ward. The doctors who are overburdened with the patients were not always able to provide the pregnant women with all these advices and suggestions.
Doctors in the city have appreciated the move taken by the government.
The television screens will show how to keep the health strong during the pregnancy and how to bring up the new born babies.Everything will be displayed through demonstration. Health department officials claimed that the initiative has been taken to spread a campaign without using the man power.
It can be said that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee after becoming the Chief Minister in 2011 had taken various projects for the treatment of pregnant women and the new born babies.
Banerjee’s brainchild the Sishu Sathi scheme immensely helped the poor children in the state run hospitals. Under this scheme poor children are being treated free of cost at the state run hospitals.
