‘Healthcare Workers Have The Final Responsibility To Protect Themselves From Covid Infection’: Health Ministry Tells Supreme Court

In an affidavit filed on behalf of the Ministry it is stated, “While the Hospital Infection Control Committee (HICC) in the health facility is responsible for implementing the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) activities and for organizing regular trainings on IPC for HCWs, the final responsibility lies with the HCW to prevent infection and to protect himself/herself.” Last month, the Top Court had sought instructions from the Centre on the issue of access to suitable accomodation & quarantine facilities for medical workers involved in treating COVID19 patients. The order was passed in the PIL field by a Udaipur-based Doctor Arushi Jain who stated that medical personnel were “Corona Warriors” and must be protected and uplifted at all costs. In response to the same, the Government through Advocate GS Makker has submitted that adequate measures are being taken at their end in consultation with ICMR, AIIMS, WHO and other experts in the medical field. However, the medical workers have already been imparted training on self-protection measures and they are responsible to protect themselves. The affidavit states, “Government of India along with State Governments has made substantive efforts to train the frontline healthcare personnel at all levels on infection prevention control practices.” In this context it is submitted, “it is also his/her responsibility to adequately train himself/herself and take all possible measures for preventing the infection…if adequate measures are scrupulously observed, the HCW’s chances of contracting the infection would not be higher than that of any other person…”It added,”the health care workers using appropriate Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) stand adequately protected against any potential exposure and subsequent infection. It is also submitted that a health care worker properly protected by Personal Protective Gears (PPE) in workplace settings carries no additional risk to their families or children, as suggested or otherwise.” The Ministry however acknowledges that there could be situations where there could be “inadvertent exposure” to the contagion, while at work, and the same has been adequately catered for in the Ministry’s guidelines. On May 15, 2020, an Advisory was issued by the Central Government to manage health care workers in COVID and Non-COVID areas of the Hospital, providing for assessing the risk of frontline healthcare personnel and categorizing them according to their risk. These guidelines, the affidavit states, emphasize the role of taking adequate preventive measures by all health care workers (HCW) working in the hospital setting against the likelihood of contracting infection at their work places. Further, those workers who are at a high risk of exposure exposed to COVID are recommended 14 days quarantine. It is further intimated that vide OM dated March 12, 2020, the Health Ministry had requested all the States/ UTs to establish Quarantine Centres for quarantining those who are potentially exposed. Thus it is submitted that adequate facilities are already in place and the suggestions made on the basis of “personal perception” of each and every individual cannot be enforced.The Ministry has contended that “the risk of frontline healthcare personnel would be mitigated if they use appropriate personal protective gears and undergo training in infection prevention control practices.”In her PIL, Dr. Jain had drawn the attention of the Court towards certain disturbing news articles coming from all across the country regarding the “harsh, deplorable and hard living conditions of doctors, nurses and support staff who are in the forefront for treating the patients suffering from Covid-19.”Contesting this submission the Central Government has submitted that the Petitioner has not placed an “iota of evidence” to show that the doctors are being diagnosed positive for Covid-19 even after using PPE appropriately.”It is in absence of any empirical evidence the contentions raised by the petitioner cannot and ought not be gone into in the present proceedings; especially when the same were placed before the experts in the field by the Central Government who have, after giving it a proper consideration, have opined against adoption of the suggestions/grievance made by the petitioner,” the affidavit states.

OUSU back Muslim prayer room

first_img“There are certainly enough Muslim students at Oxford University to ensure that good use would be made of a prayer room both for congregational prayers and other activities including study circles and inter-faith discussion groups.”82 other higher education institutions provide a prayer room for Muslim students.The University’s Equality and Diversity Mission Statement states that its objective is to allow students to reach their “full potential” and to “remove any barriers which might deter people of the highest potential and ability from applying to Oxford, either as staff or students”.Speaking in the meeting, Ali suggested that the lack of a central prayer room might be a concern for prospective students. He said, “We actually get asked quite a lot by potential students if we have a prayer room”. Students at the meeting raised the question of whether college chapels could be used as Muslim prayer rooms.Andrew Gregory, University College chaplain, commented, “Most college chaplains are happy for people of all faiths and none to use their chapels in a range of ways. But most Muslims (and indeed other faiths) would not wish to use a Christian chapel beacuse of the religious imagery that it contains.”“I would be very surprised if with a little imagination a space could not be found within the University that could be used as a large prayer space at certain times – and that would be a jolly good thing”.Ali added in his speech to Council that students of other faiths seem to have more central provisions for worship.Robbie Strachan, a student in the Christian Union, commented, “Christians believe that everyone, regardless of religious background, should have the freedom and provision to seek God and carefully investigate who He is. As such, the question of “fairness” is really a non- issue.“I am delighted that there are so many devout Muslims in Oxford who aregenuinelypursuingarelationship with God, and I pray they will be blessed as they do so.”A spokesperson for the University said, “The provision of facilities for religiousobservancesisachallenging issue in any University, particularly one as disparate as Oxford where provision for such facilities is distributed across the University and the Colleges.“The University takes issues surrounding faith provision very seriously and wants to make sure that wherever possible appropriate facilities are provided for students and staff in Oxford.”“Working with the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, the University has made some facilities available for Muslim students and this arrangement will continue. A group of senior University officers are currently looking at options for improved faith facilities.” OUSU has given its support to the Islamic Society’s campaign for the University to provide a prayer room for Muslim students.In a meeting on Wednesday night OUSU Council heard that currently the 70-80 members of the Oxford University Islamic Society have to go to either the Centre for Islamic Studies, which closes at 5pm, or to a mosque in Cowley to perform their required five daily congregational prayers.Adam Ali of Green Templeton College, and Liban Saleh of New College, proposed the motion, which asked for the support of the student body for the general idea of having a Muslim prayer room. It did not contain any details about the location or cost of the room.The motion passed unanimously and the issue will now be taken to the University Proctors for further consideration.Saleh, who is President of the Islamic Society, and Ali issued a joint statement to Cherwell outlining their reasons for launching the campaign.“As Muslims it is a requirement of our faith that we pray five times per day. Having a prayer room on the main campus, something that over 80 different higher education institutions around the country already have, would make it much easier for students to complete their prayers and avoid rushing back to their rooms to pray in between lectures.last_img read more

Premier Foods’ supplier payment plan labelled ’aggressive’

first_imgPremier Foods’ decision to strike customers off its supplier list for failing to make payments has been branded “aggressive” by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB). It is now encouraging businesses to come forward anonymously with their accounts of how Premier Foods and other companies have attempted to force payment in order to “make an issue in the media”.While Premier Foods, the company behind Mr Kipling cakes, is adamant it is not breaking competition law by demanding compulsory ‘investment payments’, an FSB spokesman told British Baker that the lines were not clear.“Premier Foods doesn’t think it is breaking competition law and there isn’t any case law as it hasn’t been examined by the CMA (Competition and Markets Authority),” he said. “There isn’t any clear line as to whether this is legal or illegal. It is very hard, sharp practice and is considered by many to be a very aggressive way of treating your customers.“The fear is whether this practice will become the norm and the big issue is that businesses are afraid to come forward.”The FSB is not aware of any other bakery-related business imposing similar payment practice. It said it has “long been concerned about the deteriorating payment practices in the supply chain”. Premier Foods is the first to make such a link between payment and inclusion on supplier lists and also to indicate that payments are to become annual.The FSB said that by forcing smaller businesses to make such supplier list payments, suppliers are pushing them to “breaking point”.Research carried out by the FSB showed that late payment had resulted in a third of its members paying their own suppliers late (32%), three in 10 say it has restricted their ability to grow (29%) and well over a tenth say it has resulted in difficulties paying staff (15%).DeteriorationJohn Allan, national chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses, said: “Premier Foods should be ashamed of themselves. Driving a hard bargain with your suppliers is one thing, but demanding a cash gift under the threat of delisting, is downright unfair.“The deterioration of payment practices is an anchor dragging on the potential of small and medium businesses to grow and take on new staff. Too many firms are waiting months for the money they are owed, and this has knock-on on their own supply chains. If the questionable practice being attempted by the likes of Premier Foods becomes the accepted norm, it may well sink those small firms without the cash reserve to prop up their larger customers.”last_img read more

Farmington selectmen discuss pending departure of police chief, interim chief named

first_imgFARMINGTON – The Farmington Police Department held the attention of the Board of Selectmen for much of the meeting last night, as the meeting opened with an approval of the Department to accept a series of grants and ended with the discussion of Police Chief Jack Peck’s upcoming retirement.Peck will be leaving the Farmington Department to take the position of Assistant Director at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. Peck’s final day will be on Nov. 12.“That will be 31 years for him, to the day, that he was working for the town of Farmington. I’m very happy for him, but it’s a loss for the town for sure,” said Town Manager Richard Davis.Davis said that Deputy Chief Shane Cote had been appointed interim chief. The next steps for the town include appointing a committee to choose a new police chief. Selectmen spoke in favor of having the committee include a combination of citizens and those with a background in police work. They discussed having John Rogers, a former director of the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, as well as Selectman Matthew Smith to serve on the committee.“John Rogers would be a great one, with his background both locally and his academy perspective,” said selectmen Stephan Bunker.Fellow selectmen Michael Fogg voiced an interest in serving on the committee as well, but only if there is room while reserving spaces for citizens and those with academy backgrounds. The board is aiming to keep the committee between 5 and 7 members and are asking any citizens interested in serving on the committee to contact the board directly.In other, police-related business, Cote asked for the board’s approval for grants: one to cover costs associated with the K9 program, another from Homeland Security to purchase new weapons and adapters, and a final grant to install more cameras in the downtown area. The cameras previously installed have proven to be successful, but the department is looking to expand surveillance further.“We want to get more coverage because there have been some other issues in the downtown that we haven’t been able to get good camera angles on,” said Cote. The new cameras would be placed along Front Street, Broadway and near Hippach Park.All three grants were unanimously approved by the board.Outside of news pertaining to the Police Department, the board also approved a 2 percent wage and salary increase for non-union employees for the coming year. Davis also previewed the upcoming construction project slated to begin next summer and take place over the span of two phases. Both phases will involve the installation of decorative lights in the areas between Broadway and Academy Street as well as from Perham to Middle Street. The improvements outlined in the project also include the addition of a bus lane outside Dearborn Gymnasium, improving parking and installing speed tables.last_img read more
