Amritsar, October 24

The health employees’ association at Jallianwala Bagh Martyrs’ Memorial Civil Hospital has asked the Health Minister to cancel the deputation of staff nurses posted at the place in view of the shortage of staff.

In a letter written to the Health Minister by Employees’ Welfare Association Civil Hospital, it has been stated that nine staff nurses appointed at the Civil Hospital have been posted at other places on deputation. The association alleged that while the hospital was facing huge shortage of trained manpower due to dengue, the employees on deputation, though counted as Civil Hospital employees, were actually working at other places.

Association chairman Rakesh Sharma said: “Earlier, too, we had written a letter to the Health Minister, but it failed to yield any result. We have now written a letter again.” He said due to dengue, the Civil Hospital staff was overburdened as more patients than it actual capacity have been admitted. “We have also requested the Health Minister to appoint more staff nurses at the hospital, so that best possible medical care can be provided to patients,” he said.
