It’s really a difficult and utter inconvenient situation for the poor patients of when they are told to buy medicines from the outside.Yes, we are talking about the inconvenience prevailing in the two main government hospitals in the city dental hospitals of Mayo and Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH).Even sometimes the patients who have suffering from serious illness have been asked to sit outside without providing proper sitting arrangement.
In general, the patients who visit these hospitals are from economically weak background. And they come here for treatment with a hope that they would get medicine free. In the Mayo OPD’s cardiology department, patients have been advised to buy two to three medicines from outside. And have been advised to go to Super Speciality Hospital for two Deco and private hospitals.
For dental hospital the situation is same as the patients after taking out admission slips, they have to wait outside for their turn. And after primary treatment about 30 percent patients are told to go for X-Ray and the pathetic unhygienic condition of the radiology section is alarming. The reckless and lethargic attitude of the hospital authorities is clearly reflected in these sections and raised many questions in higher education on health.
