Evening shift at PIMS OPD de­manded

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

IS­LAM­ABAD—Res­i­dents of the fed­eral cap­i­tal have de­manded the au­thor­i­ties con­cerned to im­me­di­ately start a full-fledged evening shift at the Out Pa­tient De­part­ment (OPD) of the Pak­istan In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sciences (OPD), keeping in view the patients’ bur­den in the morn­ing.

Due to heavy load at the OPD in day­time and lim­ited hospi­tal tim­ings, sev­eral patients, who come from far-flung ar­eas of the coun­try, face sev­eral prob­lems and fail to get con­sul­ta­tion from the doc­tors.

The peo­ple also com­plained of in­ad­e­quate staff at the PIMS emer­gency and OPD and ap­pealed to de­ploy suf­fi­cient med­i­cal and para med­i­cal staff for de­liv­ery of bet­ter ser­vices to the patients.

They said un­like med­i­cal prac­tices in abroad where one doc­tor ex­am­ines five to seven patients in a day, here at the PIMS each doc­tor has to ex­am­ine around 100 patients daily at the OPD.—APP
