Patients continue to suffer at GB Pant hospital
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 25: Patients visiting valley’s sole tertiary care children hospital at Sonawar have been complaining of poor healthcare facilities including lack of proper treatment at the GB Pant Hospital.
Patients and attendants told Greater Kashmir that two patients are being accommodated on a single bed. This, they said, was done with several chronic cases, who were suffering from diarrhea and fever.
“My child was having fever and had to share bed with diarrhea patient. It is inconvenient for everyone while the authorities are not taking any action against it,” said an attendant Abdul Raheem.
Insiders in the hospital said that instead of increase, the bed strength was reduced due to some “unknown reasons”. “This hospital is of prime importance as it caters to entire valley. But they (authorities) reduced its bed strength which is not a good sign for any institute,” they said.
Hospital Medical superintendent Dr Kaiser said that wards for both the diseases are separate.
“There is a separate ward for diarrhea patients and communicable diseases. May be the patient would have been suffering from fever as well,” he said.
