GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 2: Taking suo motto cognizance of complaints and discrepancies in patient care, a Block Medical Officer along with two doctors were transferred from Sub-District hospital Kreeri Pattan in Baramulla.
Sources told Greater Kashmir two gynecologists and BMO were found absent from their duties. “They were not granted any permission for leave. Several complaints were received against these doctors from the public,” sources said adding Chief Medical Officer, Dr Muhammad Shafi Saraf was in the team that conducted surprise visit to the hospital.
Sources added that they were accused of discrepancy in utilization of funds under National Rural Health Mission as well. “They had shown negligence in attending patients. They used to send majority of the cases to Srinagar hospitals without any reason,” said an official adding “only 260 deliveries and 15 cesareans were performed in the hospital for one year.”
“They kept referring patients to other hospitals and it is the reason other hospitals are overcrowded. This ultimately degrades quality healthcare,” they added.
Director Health Services Kashmir Dr Saleem-ur-Rehman acknowledged the trio has been transferred to Chandiloo, Baramulla and Handwara respectively for “negligence” of duties. “All the three were showing discrepancies in their duties. Even BMO was doing private practice outside the hospital which violates norms. He used to perform Ultrasonography as well,” said Dr Saleem.
He said BMO’s USG clinic was recently sealed off owing to its non-compliance of prescribed registration. (KNS)
