Amid this global pandemic, to help the patients to check the availability of Hospital Beds online, the Bihar health department has setted up a portal.
This portal displays all the hospitals present in Bihar along with their locations, contact number and the most important the total number of beds including the ICU ones that are vacant in the hospital. It is said that for now the status of vacant beds will be updated two times at day i.e. 10 am and 6 pm but efforts are being taken to update the data as soon as possible.
One can access the portal from the below link. Just copy and paste the below link in the search bar of your browser.
As soon as you open the above link, you will see all the hospitals listed. In the search bar present at the top right corner, you can enter your district name to sort the list of all hospitals along with the vacant beds present the respective hospitals in your district.
Now, although the portal displays the total number of General and ICU vacant beds in the hospital, there isn’t any medium to register for the vacant beds online. I personally think, if the portal has that facility then that would give the patient a complete relief for the patient to get a vacant bed with ease. Anyways this is a praiseworthy initiative by the Government of Bihar and it will be interesting to see whether the portal will be continuously able to display the correct data.
