Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Mar 28: As the administration on today cracked whip against the two medicos of Srinagar's JLNM hospital, there are reports that partial approach has been adopted while action was initiated into the matter.
As per the inputs, 26 suspected coronavirus cases who were under quarantine fled from the hospital on Saturday. In the night chaotic scenes were witnessed when some patients complained that they didn't like the facilities and instead created uproar and broke the window panes and fled early in the morning.
The Government late on Saturday announced that it has suspended one doctor and terminated another for the dereliction of duties.
However, the names of the two medicos against whom the punitive action has been taken do not figure in the duty roster issued by he deputy director health services Kashmir for Saturday- 28-03-2020. "The patients fled from the hospital today. Action should have been taken against those medicos who were on duty as per the rooster. However, ironically the hospital administration was adamant to make a contractual medico a scapegoat in the entire fiasco and terminated her services without an compunction," sources privy to the issue divulged.
It was informed further that the medicos in the JLNM hospital are facing the tough ordeals due to the absence of masks and body protection gears with several doctors alleging that the hospital administration is deliberately exposing them to severe risks amid the prevalent pandemic.
The medico whose services were terminated, as per the insiders, was asked to collect the samples from the 26 suspected coronavirus cases who were under quarantine in the hospital. However, she was not provided with any masks and body protection gear during the entire process which became the reason that she refused to comply with the orders. "Such an action is endangering the lives of other patients who are in the hospital for the treatment of other ailments. This is unprecedented and shocking that in order to save its skin, the administration is victimising the innocent medicos. Doctors who are endangering their lives during the current times should be equipped with all requisite protective entities. ," an official in the hospital said.
