AIDS CONTROL PROGRAMME: One AIDS Cell (ESAC) has been set up at ESI Directorate for implementation of AIDS Control Programme which is fully financed by National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) fund. One STD Laboratory and Clinic are functioning at ESI Hospital, Bhubaneswar. HOSPITAL WASTE MANAGEMENT: Hospital waste management has been entrusted to M/s.SANICLEAN (P) Ltd. on contractual basis for ESI Hospital, Choudwar (100 beds) and ESI Hospital, Bhubaneswar (50 beds) since August2004 as per the guidelines of Orissa Pollution Control Board.

-:22:ACHIEVEMENTS DURING THE LAST YEAR 2004-05: The details of achievements made during the last year 2004-05 are annexed at Annexure-E. All National programmes are implemented in ESI Scheme in collaboration with the local Health Authorities under Health & Family Welfare Department of the State PENAL PROVISION TO REGULATE THE SCHEME. Every claimant has a right of raising a dispute in the Employees Insurance Court headed by a Judicial Officer appointed by the State Government. The jurisdiction of a Civil Court is barred in such cases. Any false statement or false representation made or caused to be made for the purpose of obtaining benefit wrongfully constitutes an offence under the Employees State Insurance Act., punishable with imprisonment up to 3 months or with fine up to Rs.500/- or both. IMPORTANT ISSUES FOR CONSIDERATION: 1. SETTING UP OF SUPER SPECIALITY HOSPITAL AT BHUBANESWAR It has been decided in the 133rd meeting of ESI Corporation held on 7.7.2005 to set up 4 (four) Super Speciality Hospitals at New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Hyderabad where a number of super speciality hospitals are already available. Orissa being one of the most backward States of the Country with lowest per capita income, is in urgent need of such a Super Speciality Hospital, as the ESI beneficiaries are too poor to afford Super Speciality treatment outside the State. The existing ESI Hospital at Bhubaneswar has adequate space for up-gradation of the Hospital to a Super Specialist Hospital which can cater to the needs of the ESI beneficiaries of Orissa, Jharkhanda, Bihar and Chhatisgarh. Government of India may consider this issue with all seriousness. 2. APPOINTMENT OF DOCTORS AND PARA-MEDICAL STAFF IN THE MODEL HOSPITAL, ROURKELA. One 50 bedded Model Hospital has started functioning at Rourkela since 1.5.2003 to cater the needs of the ESI beneficiaries of Western Orissa. The Model Hospital is directly looked after by the ESI Corporation. But even after 3 years of its establishment, the over-all functioning of the Model Hospital is not satisfactory. Despite deputation of some doctors and para-Medical Staff and other Staff from the State Government, things do not appear to have improved to the desired extent. As a result, the ESI beneficiaries of Western Orissa are still being referred to other referral hospitals at the time of need. The doctors, para medical and other staff on deputation to the Medical Officer at Rourkela have been pressing hard for their repatriation. Since there is acute shortage of doctors and para-medical and other staff in the ESI cadre, the ESI doctors and para-medical and other staff may be sent back to the ESI Directorate and the ESI Corporation should arrange to fill-up all the vacancies by suitable hands, so that it could function as a referral hospital for the whole State.

-:23:3. OPENING OF ESI DISPENSARY AT KUARMUNDA DN DUBURI: ESI corporation has submitted revised survey report indicating that the total no. of coverable employees at Kuarmunda is 3,025 and at Duburi it is 3,724. Government have been moved for setting up of a full fledged Dispensary in those areas due to the rising trend of coverable employees. 4. ADDITIONAL COVERAGE OF EMPLOYEES TO ESI DISPENSARY, PARADEEP: One ESI Dispensary at Paradeep is functioning at Atharabanki covering 2,500 I.P./Family Units. The accommodation provided by the Paradeep Port Trust Authority is not sufficient. As such, 3,320 no. of coverable employees are deprived of getting medical benefit from the existing ESI Dispensary at Paradeep. This problem needs to be solved soon.
