Patiala, May 9
In a shot in the arm for Government Rajindra Hospital amid criticism of Covid-appropriate facilities at the isolation ward, a Covid survivor has extended thanks to the hospital authorities for free and good treatment.
A resident of Ghaziabad (UP), Sumit, at the time of his discharge said: “My oxygen saturation had dropped to a critical level during home isolation. But I couldn’t get a bed in the National Capital Region (NCR). Consequently, I had to come to Patiala for Covid treatment. The very next day I got a bed here. The quality of treatment and medical equipment, herein, has changed my perception of government hospitals.”
In a video message, talking about the Government Rajindra Hospital, the patient expressed his satisfaction with food and support staff at the isolation ward.
He said: “The best part was that I didn’t have to spend a single penny on the entire treatment.”
Many residents of New Delhi and other states are getting treatment at the hospital.
The video came a few days after many attendants of Covid patients staged a protest, alleging mismanagement at the ward.
Meanwhile, Dr Sara, daughter of another Covid patient, also praised patient care at the hospital.
