Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 1: The District Hospital Poonch seems to be in total chaos as it has been lacking in essential machines like Tetanus and Anti Rabies vaccination due to which patients suffer a lot but hospital administration acting as mute spectator.
As per reports, the hospital, which caters hundreds of patients on regular basis, who visit with varied health related complaints but it has been allegedly reported that there is huge shortage of essential life saving drugs in the hospital.
In one such incident which took place today at DH Poonch, where a female patient having dog bite case visited hospital for the treatment but she got shocked to know that hospital has no TT, Anti rabies vaccination in its stock.
"I went to District Hospital Poonch today with the my husband for anti rabies vaccination as a dog bite me. Doctor examined me and prescribed Tetanus injection and Anti Rabies vaccination but we were surprised to know that these injections were not available in hospital stock and they asked to purchase the same from the market but more shocking part of this incident was that injections were also not available in the market too," said patient, Advocate Kamini Koushal DLSA Poonch.
Her husband Pardeep Khanna said while talking to Early Times informed that they had to face very tough situation when they didn't find anti rabies drug in market. "Incidentally the concerned District Development Commissioner Poonch was also on the visit in the hospital and I informed him about the entire incident, but official instead of holding the hospital accountable, asked them to arrange the vaccine from Army for my wife, which irate me as there were many other patients who were also present in the hospital at that time with same case nobody was bother to take care of them. I refused him to take favour and I arranged the vaccination," Khanna said.
He further said the condition of hospital in terms of facilities is highly deplorable and the casual approach of concerned DDC was shocking.
