Immediate instructions have been given regarding mandatory keeping of attendants with patients.
Surat : The Civil Hospital at Majura in Surat has been in the news for some time due to the plight of patients. Yesterday there was a controversy due to a drunken driver of a private ambulance, who was taking patients from one ward to another in the civil hospital today due to the absence of any attendants. The families are facing more problems because they are not meeting the ward they have asked to go to.In the civil hospital today, a couple was carrying their son on a stretcher in different wards since morning according to the doctors. However, as there was no servant with him, he was wandering in the civil hospital. The patient’s mother said that we are moving from one number to another from 7 am. My son was injured in a fall in the bathroom but no medicine has been prescribed and no injection has been given yet.
On the other side, another patient’s husband said, “I have come to Civil because my wife is ill.” Now I have been asked to go to number 9. A civil servant was provided for the husband to carry his wife in a wheel chair, but he left earlier. So they were looking for number 9. However, while returning shortly, it was revealed that he did not get that number.Regarding this, Dr. Surat Civil Hospital. Ganesh Govekar said that when every patient has to be taken from one place to two places, a servant is kept with them. Patients are kept with attendants depending on their condition. Immediate instructions have been given regarding mandatory keeping of attendants with patients.
