Despite a Supreme Court mandate to provide night shelters for outstation patients and attendants, AIIMS is not having night shelters for poor.
What the actual story is?
According to the report, the available night shelters in AIIMS can barely fit 200 patients. The patients who take refuge in footpaths situated outside the hospital usually spent night with lighting up small fires to keep themselves warm. The blankets provided by the charity are also of poor quality.
Recently, AIIMS inagurated a 120-bed night shelter for outstation patients.
