Call 112, Kerala police will deliver life-saving medicine to critically ill patients – KERALA – GENERAL
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: DGP Loknath Behera said that an extensive system has been put in place to provide life-saving medicine to critically ill people. This is due to restrictions on travel outside the district. But regular drugs are not available that way. For this, special transport facilities have been set up in Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi.
Drugs are transported from district to district in highway patrol vehicles. The southern zone, IG Harshita Attalluri, has been appointed as state manager for the project. The traffic alert cell will monitor the movement of drugs at police headquarters.
Call 112 for medication
The police can be contacted on 112 to obtain life-saving medicine. The police will then collect the medication, wrap it securely in a package, record the patient’s name, address, phone number and extension name, and notify the nodal agent.
Thiruvananthapuram Medical College and Kochi Central Police Stations will function as drug collection centers. Doctors, hospital officials and relatives can dispense medicines in these centers. If the drugs are to be delivered to the district, they must be collected by the district police chiefs through the Janamaithri police.
