Two days after the death of eight COVID-19 patients in the ICU of Shrey Hospital in Navrangpura, the AMC is now looking at the fire safety system in place in all such hospitals.
Shrey Hospital was a dedicated COVID-19 facility and a fire in the ICU of the hospital early Thursday morning killed eight people.
A check at the other 67 other hospitals in the city has revealed that only 26 have the mandatory NOC. This means the rest 13 are functioning without the mandatory NOC.
Eleven hospitals have put in the application for NOC renewal. Two applications for NOC are still under process with the fire department.
In once case the building in which the hospital functions has a NOC but the hospital itself has no NOC. One hospital has a fire system in place but no NOC.

What probe revealed so far about Shrey Hospital fire?
Initial investigations into the fire at Shrey Hospital revealed that a short circuit had caused the fire.
It, however, also emerged that the fire NOC had expired and the hospital had not renewed it.
Earlier Leader of Opposition Dinesh Sharma also said that the fourth floor of the hospital was illegally constructed and later regularised under the impact fee rule.
It is also alleged that the hospital ran a canteen in the margin area, which ideally should have been left empty.
Reports also said that the hospital had no functioning fire system in place and in fact had only a few fire extinguishers.
