JAMSHEDPUR: To give a facelift to the state-run MGMMCH in Jamshedpur in East Singhbhum district decision has been taken to hire 58 ward boys and 26 dressers. It may be mentioned here that once there were 120 ward boys in the hospital. Due to the lackadaisical attitude of the authorities concerned there is an extreme shortage of ward boys and dressers along with other staff in the hospital.
Sources said as many as 617 outsourced staff would be hired soon out of this 286 would be staff nurses. Sources said, stating the details of the sanctioned posts, has been given from the government and a note has been sent to the hospital head.
Meanwhile, sources said an amount of Rs 4.2 crore is needed for the development of the hospital and the medical college. It includes the repair of doctors’ hostels and staff quarters. On the other hand Jamshedpur west BJP MLA Saryu Rai has written a letter to the state health department asking for the speedy development of the hospital. Notably, the hospital has 540 beds.
Patients visiting this government-run hospital have to run from pillar-to-post to get their patients treated. Due to extreme crunch of staff and doctors patients are left with no option but to look for alternatives in private nursing homes and hospitals in the Steel City.
A visit to the hospital reveals the tale of neglect. One can spot dogs and cats freely roaming in the hospital wards. Many a times patients have suffered canine bite within the hospital premises. Stinking toilets and lack of basic amenities in the hospital are common.
Patients and their kins complain that successive governments have come and gone but situation at the hospital remains the same.
