Srinagar: SK Institute of Medical Sciences has operationalized a specific drug counter in COVID block for the convenience of patients.
Medical Superintendent SKIMS in a statement said that that drug counter has been opened and is functional from today. He said it was a public demand that the IDB/ COVID block should have a separate drug counter. The drug counter will have all required drugs available and it will be convenient for the patients admitted in COVID block who otherwise had to purchase drugs from main pharmacy SKIMS.
