All hospitals in Delhi will be on alert for Holi. On this day, apart from traffic accidents, the number of allergies and others due to colors increase. Doctors say the number of patients coming to the hospital’s emergency department has increased by 15 to 50 percent from the night before Holi.
All major hospitals including Loknayak, DDU, Safdarjung, RML, AIIMS, Lady Hardinge, Ambedkar, Babu Jagjivan Ram, Sanjay Gandhi, GTB have been warned about this. In addition, trauma center services have also been advised to remain active. Chacha Nehru Hospital and GTB Hospital in East Delhi have also made separate arrangements for children in the emergency room in view of Holi.
Dr. Suresh Kumar, medical chief of Loknayak Hospital, said that in view of Holi, the hospital’s emergency department will be on alert and arrangements will be made for extra beds. He said that the incidence of road accidents increases during Holi. Apart from this, there are many cases of allergies and other cases of colors. On the other hand, the senior physician of the emergency department of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital that the number of patients increases by one and a half on the occasion of Holi. Often these people are drunk and cause a lot of commotion even after coming to the hospital. Doctors are not even allowed to treat decently. In such a situation, it becomes very difficult to treat them.
He says 75 percent of accidents coming to hospitals from the night before Holi are due to alcohol. Apart from this, accidents from hitting water balloons and cases of color in the eyes also occur.
If it was safe to play there wouldn’t be a problem
Dr. Karib Sardana, head of the skin department at Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, said that if Holi is played in a safe manner, there will be no problem. Chemical colors should not be used. This can cause skin problems. Before playing Holi with natural colors, apply coconut oil. As a result, the color does not get on the body. There will also be no problems with allergies. People with asthma or allergies to colors should avoid the colors. Even if Holi is played, it should be played for a short time.
Eye cases reach 90 percent
Most of the cases are related to the eyes due to the wrong use of colors on the day of Holi. Doctors say people should wear non-powered glasses before playing Holi so that the color does not get into the eyes. If there is a problem, go to the doctor immediately.
