Wrong to strike work: director
- The AIIMS, Bathinda, management has constituted a three-member committee to probe the incident
- The nursing staff were sent back to the parent institution by Rajindra Hospital, Patiala, after they alleged poor accommodation and food
- “We have learnt the staff refused to go to work, which is wrong. We have formed a committee to look into this and submit a report,” said Bathinda AIIMS Director Dr DK Singh
AIIMS Director Dr DK Singh said: “The nursing staff raised the issue of poor food and accommodation provided to them, which can be sorted out within a day or two. But we have learnt they refused to go to work, which is wrong. We have constituted a committee of three doctors to look into this and submit a report.”
He said the recruitment of nursing staff had been pending as the building was under construction. “So we don’t require more staff, but owing to the pandemic, we had hired 500 nursing staff and sent them to the government hospitals to provide them manpower during the crisis,” he said.
The newly hired nursing staff were given recruitment letters a day before they were sent to Patiala and Mohali for duty.
Around 50 male nurses from AIIMS, Bathinda, deployed at the isolation wing of Rajindra hospital, were relieved by the Medical Superintendent of the hospital on Wednesday after they staged a protest over poor boarding and lodging facilities. They stayed at the Covid ward for only two days.
