Bathinda, November 24
In the absence of ward attendants at the emergency unit of the Bathinda Civil Hospital, family members/relatives are forced to lift and carry critical patients themselves inside the premises.
Even when the critical patients are inside the emergency unit, there is no one to move them around. The patients are seen moving inside the unit on their own while others are assisted by relatives accompanying them.
Family members or relatives of these critical patients can be seen taking them out from ambulances and then carry them to the emergency unit.
Even critically injured patients, are lifted by family members and taken to the unit. Dr Maninder Pal Singh, Senior Medical Officer, Civil Hospital, said: “There is a ward attendant at the emergency unit but he often remains busy in the work. Also, there is staff crunch. If the ward attendant will stand at the entrance then the work inside the unit will get hampered.” — TNS
