Best Practices -2020-21
Best Practice 1
- Title of the Practice : COVID-19 Sampling and Vaccination Assistance
- Objectives of the Practice: To assist doctoral staff of civil hospital, Amb for COVID-19 Sampling, Vaccination and Field duty.
- The Context: During the COVID-19 sampling and vaccination some of the doctoral and other staff of civil-hospital Amb were infected with COVID. In this situation services for our faculty members were demanded by local administration for sampling and vaccination.
- The Practice: During this duty Mr. Anil Verma (Assistant Professor –Department of Computer Applications) was consulted for sampling data collection solution. Prof. Anil Verma prepared a QR enabled solution for data collection and auto generated COVID-19 RT-PCR slips for civil hospital Amb. The solution was very useful to control the flow of public gathered for sampling during field visits.
- Evidence of Success: The solution framed by Prof. Anil Verma was used to collect COVID-19 sampling data of over 20,000 individuals during 2020-21. An appreciation letter for his commendable work has been issued by Block Medical Officer, Civil Hospital, Amb.
- Problems Encountered and Resources Required: During field visits for sampling it was difficult to control the public gathering due to single counter manual entry on register. A parallel easy to use sampling registration solution is required for effective and stress-free sampling.
- Notes (Optional): Preparation of COVID-19 RT-PCR slips for sampling tubes was also a challenging and time consuming task for hospital staff. An easy to use auto generated solution for the same was also designed. In addition to this 6 other faculty members dedicatedly performed sampling and vaccination duty for about 30 days.
Best Practice 2
- Title of the Practice: Social Service During COVID-19 by NCC Cadets and NSS Volunteers.
- Objectives of the Practice: To Conduct Online classes for 11th and 12th standard by NSS Volunteers under the title NSS-Meri Pathshala and Ex-NCC Yogdan by NCC Cadets.
- The Context: Services of NCC cadets were required to assist local police of district Una. State-Level NSS initiative NSS-Meri Pathshala required services of NSS Volunteers for the executions of this programme.
- The Practice: 24 NCC cadets were deployed to assist local police and maintenance of COVID-19 SOP in the surrounding areas. All the cadets performed on ground duty and helped the administration during pandemic time. 6 NSS volunteers participated in NSS-Meri Pathshala programme and executed online classes for 11th and 12th standard students. Our college student Gaurav Thakur of BSc. 3rd year was the coordinator of this programme.
- Evidence of Success: 24 NCC cadets performed duty for about 25 days under Ex-NCC-Yogdan. Further about 1100 students registered under NSS-Meri Pathshala programme from different districts of Himachal Pradesh. The programme component “Masti ki Pathshala” for the promotion of fun-learning received lots of appreciation.
- Problems Encountered and Resources Required: During COVID-19 the opening time for market was very limited and to control the public gathering during that time period was a challenging task for local administration. The support of NCC cadets made this task quite easier for local administration. Further in the absence of school to engage students in learning practices was also difficult, but grate initiatives like NSS-Meri Pathshala and Masti ki Pathshala made it easier for society.
- Notes (Optional): 24 NCC cadets also received a total sum of Rs. 86856.00 as a transport and maintenance allowance during their services under Ex-NCC-Yogdan.
