Early Times Report

Kupwara, Jan 29: The continuous strike of NHM employees has badly hit the patient care in scores of far flung villages of north Kashmir.
According to sources that due to continuous strike of National Health Mission (NHM) employees the patient care have got badly affected in the various hospitals of the valley and same is witnessed in scores of hospitals in north Kashmir.
Since NHM employees went on strike, the work load for regular employees is increasing day by day and with the result patient care is badly affected in rural villages that were already facing shortage of regular staff, said sources.
Sources said that during these winters, various employees have already went on earned leave due to unknown reasons, and most of them are enjoying their holidays in winter capital Jammu.
In Kupwara district hospital, NHM employees are on strike and patients who visits there from border areas like, Keran, Karnah and Tangdar are facing many problems, as the regular staff including some doctors and paramedical staff cannot tackle the rush.
Bashir Khan from Karnah said that, from past two days i am here in Kupwara hospital and due to rush of patients, i couldn't get my turn in time, and after which i moved to Sopore Sub District Hospital, same rush of patients was also witnessed there, due to which i am leaving to private hospital in Srinagar for medical check up.
"I am suffering of serious health issues and for that, i need complete medical examination, but due to my bad luck scores of employees are on strike,"Khan told Early Times.
Another patient from Kandi area of Baramulla district, Ali Mohammad said that, i visited the nearby hospital for treatment, but unfortunately, i was told that employees are on strike from past one week.
I had visited with a hope, but time and again, it is the patient who suffers at large, while as governments has also failed to consider the demands of thousand NHM employees, otherwise some alternate arrangements should have been made in hospital, said Ali Mohammad.
However sources said that, from past couple of weeks, the NHM employees under the banner of National Health Mission Employees Association (NHMEA) staged protest against the government for 'failing' to regularize them from past several years.
