Bhilai, Sep 14: Patients should not face any problem for basic facilities in the hospital and their complaints should be immediately resolved, said Collector Pushpendra Kumar Meena during the inspection of Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital in Supela. He enquired the patients about the basic facilities. Patients replied that doctors conduct visits on time and provide good treatment. The behaviour of the nursing staff is also very good. A patient of the obstetrics department informed that his wife had delivered a baby. There was a power cut for sometime last night. The Ward boy was asked to start the generator but he delayed. After about half an hour, the power supply resumed but till then the patients and their attendants faced a lot of inconvenience. The Collector asked the officers that immediate action should be taken on the feedback of the relatives of the patients. He directed the hospital in-charge Dr Piyam Singh to serve a notice to the Ward boy who was on duty that night.
Hospital in-charge Dr Piyam Singh said that the blood storage unit and sonography facility has provided a great relief. Along with normal delivery, Cesarean delivery is also being conducted.
The Collector also oversaw NABARD’s 10-bed hospital which is being constructed in the hospital premises. He also inspected the 20-bed isolation ward being constructed from the funds of DMF. The Collector said that after the district hospital, Supela Hospital has the maximum footfall at OPDs. Accordingly, all possible facilities will be ensured here. He asked the officials to inform about the shortage of resources so that the district administration could provide the same.
Collector also visited CMHO office premises and took information from CMHO Dr JP Meshram regarding the requirements. He also visited the Malaria Testing Center and inquired about the activities for malaria prevention. He asked how many samples have come so far. The staff showed him the process of checking malaria parasites in a microscope. Collector instructed them to get a concrete roof constructed at Malaria Bhavan.
