After AIIMS, now cyber attack on Safdarjung Hospital too!
Now the case of cyber attack has also come to the fore at Safdarjung Hospital. However, in this cyber attack, the service of the hospital did not suffer as much damage as it did to AIIMS.
Now the case of a cyber attack on Safdarjung Hospital of Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has come to light. The damage at Safdarjung Hospital was not as severe as that at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences hospital. According to Safdarjung Hospital officials, the hospital runs OPD services manually so it was not serious. Meanwhile, the server of AIIMS remained down for the 11th day as well. The Delhi AIIMS server has been restored, but all services are running in manual mode.
Giving information about this, Dr. BL Sherwal, Medical Superintendent of Safdarjung Hospital said that there was a cyber attack. Our server was also down for a day in November, but the data was safe. He said it was handled by IT, the National Informatics Center (NIC), which revamped the system.
Dr. Sherwal further said that the cyber attack was not ransomware. Another hospital official said that the IP had been blocked. ANI team also contacted the IT of the hospital for more details but they did not respond.
A senior resident doctor told that the server was down for some time only for a day. Later they started again. Most of the time we do our work manually.
Earlier the server of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was reported to be down from 7 am on Wednesday, November 23. Since then working manually. AIIMS on Thursday, November 24, issued a statement of the SOP, stating that admission, discharge and transfer of patients to the hospital would be done manually.
