The Sir Sayajirao General (SSG) Hospital authorities have taken immediate action on sending a notice to all the departments for taking prompt action on the transaction of the forms for death certificate following a Newsline report of April 20 over the issue of delayed procedures here.

The report,‘SSG Hospital blamed for anomalies,delay in death certificates’,had highlighted the irregularities and delays in the issue of death certificate forms that every department has to send to the records department of the hospital within 48 hours of the death of a patient.

But while many departments procrastinated in submitting the forms to the records department,many forms also had various irregularities in the names of the deceased.

The Vadodara Municipal Corporation’s (VMC) Birth and Death Registration Department had also accepted the mistakes and the last minute submissions done by the SSG Hospital. It was also found that many forms had the wrong name of the person submitted; some had spelling mistakes while others had a completely different name.

Many a times,as the patients are illiterate,the forms are filled by the hospital staff. On the issue,SSG Superintendent Dr Atul Saxena said: “Many a times the relatives are not aware of the age or the official name of the deceased because of which they generally tell the nickname of the person. But the staff has been asked to maintain accuracy while filling up the forms.”

Now the SSG officials have immediately inquired about the entire procedure and the flaws that have occurred.

“The rules are already set and are known to everyone,but certain departments make delayed submissions. We have notified all the departments to submit the forms on time,” Saxena added.
