SRINAGAR — Even as the authorities claim to provide better medical care to the patients at valley hospitals, the alleged misbehavior of officials at GB Pant hospital here with the attendants has put a question mark over the claims. Shah Jehangir, an attendant whose baby is admitted at the hospital had been asked to conduct ultrasonography of the minor patient by the doctors.
However, Jehangir said that soon after he reached the ultrasonography section at the hospital, he asked the officials to conduct the test as advised by the doctor. However, he alleged that the officials misbehaved with him as they were getting ready to leave the hospital at 3:00 pm.
“I urged them to conduct the ultrasonography of my child but they refused and misbehaved with me,” he said, adding that he approached the Deputy Medical Superintendent.
“The Deputy Medical Superintendent accompanied me to the ultrasonography room but they misbehaved with him, too. He asked me to file a written complaint against the officials so that action will be taken against them,” Shah said. He added that he later filed a written complaint at the office of Medical Superintendent, Dy MS and RMO of the hospital for action against the officials.
The Deputy Medical Superintendent said that they have already received complaints against the officials of the section. “It is not for the first time that a complaint has been received against the officials. A stern action will be taken against the officials,” he added.
