As a follow up of his visit to Tomo Riba Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (TRIHMS), Naharlagun, Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) B D Mishra on Thursday chaired a high-level meeting at Raj Bhavan in Itanagar.

Governor Mishra discussed the infrastructure and manpower issues of the lone medical college of State.

The Governor, while sharing his observations with health commissioner, Dr Ashish Ch Verma, advised him to initiate necessary action to utilize the equipments and facility in the institute.

Mishra said, TRIHMS being a new institution, all-out effort has to be made to make it functional and patient-friendly.

“By commitment to do with whatever is available in the hospital, the doctors and nurses can bring confidence, hope and solace to their patients. Make best use of provisions already in hand,” the Governor said.

The Governor emphasized on starting of the blood bank and intensive care units of the hospital at the earliest.

He also advised on expediting the process to address the shortage of manpower, particularly the nursing staff.

The Governor further advised the concerned officers to progress the working of TRIHMS on a fast track basis.

He said that letters and files must move faster and personal contact and visits must be made to expedite the matters so that welfare works, particularly for the sick and needy do not suffer.

He also suggested display of placards inside TRIHMS to keep institute clean and tidy.

Among others, Land Management secretary, S K Jain, administrative reforms secretary, Juhi Mukherjee, and TRIHMS director, Dr Moji Jini, were present in the meeting.
