SMHS hospital suffers from ultrasound film deficiency
PATIENTS ASKED TO GET TESTS DONE PRIVATELY
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 21: The attendants of patients undergoing ultrasound at SMHS Hospital have complained that the concerned authorities were not providing them with test report, which comes in film format.
Sources told Greater Kashmir that due to the refusal of the ultrasound film by the authorities, some of the doctors at the hospital were allegedly asking the patients to get the tests done at private diagnostic centres.
“These doctors advise the patients to get the ultrasound with film done at private diagnostic centres,” the attendants told Greater Kashmir.
They said that many of the poor patients aren’t able to conduct the test privately due to financial constraints and were suffering due to the indifferent attitude of the medicos.
Meanwhile, attendants of patients who had to be operated upon at SMHS have alleged that some of the doctors were suggesting them to get LFT and TSH tests done privately.
“The doctors insist to get these important tests done at the private clinics,” the attendants said adding the tests done in the SMHS laboratory are not taken into account.
“We fail to understand as to why these doctors insist on doing tests at the private laboratories when state-of-the-art testing facilities are available at the hospital,” the attendants added.
When contacted, the Government Medical College principal, Prof Qazi Masood said the test films would be provided to the patients now onwards.
“Earlier, the department was not providing films to the patients, but now, they will give films to those undergoing USG,” Prof Qazi Masood said.
About the allegations that some of the medicos were advising patients to get tests done privately, Prof Qazi Masood said, strict action would be taken against such medicos. He asked the patients to register such complaints if any with him for necessary action.
