KOZHIKODE: With the Nipah virus spread now contained, staff at Perambra government taluk hospital can start working without the fear of infection. However, the loss Lini Sajeesh, one of the dedicated nurses who passed away treating Nipah affected patient, still haunts them. 

Now, hospital staff want to rename the hospital to Angel Lini Memorial government hospital as a tribute to the true hero. People of Perambra too have voiced their support to the move.“Our colleague Lini was a dedicated nurse and was always ready to help patients. Her demise is a loss for the entire nation,” said K Abubhakkar, staff council secretary at the hospital. 

He said Lini has set a model in state’s healthcare sector with her sincere service. “Remembering her will inspire all in the healthcare sector,” said Abubakkar. According to him, renaming the hospital will be a recognition for Lini’s dedicated service. People of Perambra too have supported the demand. Health minister K K Shyalaja told ‘Express’ that Lini raised standard of nursing service through her action and state is thankful to her forever. 

“The government would take a final call on the demand for renaming the hospital only after a detailed discussion. However, we will consider the demand,” she said.
