Sham shifts 3 BMOs for ‘poor management’
‘Perform duties honestly or face action’
Srinagar, June 21: Taking serious note of poor functioning of some health institutions in the Valley, Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Sham Lal Sharma today ordered shifting of three Block Medical Officers from their present places of posting.
During surprise inspection of Sub-District hospitals, Magam, Beerwah and Primary Health Centre Ompora in Budgam district, the Minister took serious notice of poor management and ordered on-the-spot attachment of the concerned BMOs.
While BMOs Magam and Ompora have been attached with the Directorate of Health Services, Kashmir, the BMO Beerwah has been shifted to District Hospital, Budgam.
Officials said Dr Tahir and Dr Omar were fined Rs 2000 each for violating dress code while Dr Ghazala and Pharmacist Ali Muhammad, were transferred for “dereliction of duties.”
The Minister also sought explanation from Dr Samiya and Pharmacist B.A. Ganai in SDH, Beerwah for having remained absent for two days. The Minister also ordered suspension of Dental Surgeon of PHC Ompora, Dr Heena Manzoor for marking attendance in advance, and transfer of Assistant Surgeon Dr. Neelofar, for her poor performance. He also directed to serve termination notices to two NRHM doctors for showing laxity in their duties.
The Minister also ordered inquiry into the bungling of JSY account in SDH, Beerwah. The ASHAs of the area alleged that they were not being paid as per the norms and aren’t receiving proper cooperation from the authorities in discharging their duties. It was also found that the diaries devised by the NRHM defining their duties and incentives have also not been delivered to them. The Director Health Services has been asked to inquire into the matter and submit the report within a week.
“I want to make it clear that there is no place for irresponsible and non- performing officials and doctors. Government is spending huge funds to improve medicare facilities in the health institutions and expects serious approach towards duties on part of officials. Government has ensured better working environment and enhanced incentives for the doctors and para-medics. It is their duty to do justice with their profession and deliver on ground,” the Minister said.
