Vic­tim scoots against med­i­cal ad­vice

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - METRO -

Ejaz Ahmed (6), an­other train ac­ci­dent vic­tim, who was ad­mit­ted to the ‘C-D sur­gi­cal ward’, left the PMCH against med­i­cal ad­vice late last evening. This was yet an­other pointer to the non-ex­is­tent med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties and the lack of in­fra­struc­ture and faith among pa­tients at the PMCH.

An­other train ac­ci­dent vic­tim, Ra­jen­dra Ku­mar Gupta (bed num­ber 11A G-H sur­gi­cal ward), was also keen on get­ting a dis­charge from the hospi­tal. Fed up of the de­plorable fa­cil­i­ties, his cousin, Pappu, was press­ing the hospi­tal au­thor­i­ties to dis­charge Gupta. Ajay Ku­mar Gupta and Kar­tik Pathak, both ad­mit­ted in the new trauma ward with frac­tured leg and head in­juries, com­plained that there was no wa­ter sup­ply in their ward. “Fetch­ing wa­ter to the sec­ond floor for ablu­tions is a te­dious task for my at­ten­dants,” Pathak told HT.

Satyen­dra Prasad Singh, an­other train mishap vic­tim on bed num­ber 28 of trauma ward, com­plained that nei­ther the ceil­ing fan nor the ta­ble fan in the eight-bed unit was func­tional and some pa­tients had even brought their per­sonal ta­ble fans to the hospi­tal. Su­per­in­ten­dent Dr OP Choud­hary said the PHED and the en­ergy de­part­ments had al­ready been told to fix the short­com­ings, but were de­lay­ing it. “In fact, wa­ter sup­ply to the whole cam­pus is an is­sue and we have been re­peat­edly re­quest­ing the PHED to ad­dress,” Dr Choud­hary added.
