Serving personnel of any Central ParamilitaryForce (BSF / CRPF / CISF / ITBP / ASSAM RIFLES / SSB / NSG / SPG), and their dependants are entitled to all facilities available at BSF Composite Hospital, Jalandhar.

As soon as all specialists as authorized are appointed and all facilities become available the advantages of up-grading this hospital will become more apparent. Even now, one would notice, on referring to the Specialties and Facilities Available column that many improvements have already been brought about.

Why do we have to sometimes procure some medicines from the local market and why cannot all medicines be made available in this hospital itself?

It is only due to the dedicated attention of BSF Medical set-up that such a wide variety of medicines and services are made available routinely inside the hospital itself. One may compare BSF Hospitals with the State Government and other Central Government Hospitals and note the big difference in availability of medicines free of cost here, though other Govt Hospitals have much larger budgetary allocations for medicines.  Short expiry, poor availability in the market of some medicines, refusal by certain firms to supply small quantities of medicines on Govt terms and conditions, unforeseen excessive demand for the same medicine etc are some of the reasons for unavailability of certain medicines in this hospital. In case some medicines are unavailable in the dispensary the patient must first contact the treating doctor for any replacement and if even that is not possible, reimbursement of bills can be claimed after procuring the medicines from the market on payment.

There are so many mosquitoes in the locality I live. Will I get Malaria?

Mosquitoes are a nuisance even if one does not get Malaria. One can get Dengu which is equally or even more disabling. Cooperate with the local Municipal authorities in avoiding stagnant water collections, garbage disposal and maintaining good hygiene and sanitation practices.  The Anophles mosquito is lesser seen in Jalandhar and therefore Malaria is less common.

What is the risk of my getting AIDS?

The risk of getting AIDS cannot be quantified exactly for any one person. In view of India being the country with the largest number of AIDS patients every one of us must strive to prevent its spread. It is very important for one to be fully aware about AIDS, how HIV spreads and the usefulness of Condoms in AIDS prevention. Safe sex, Abstinence from Drugs, Seeking treatment at only Government recognized Health Care centres and being full aware about AIDS are all that is expected of the general public to fight AIDS.
