SDH Sunderbani, Nowshera top in referral cases in 2020
Rajouri Hospitals become patients’ referral centres
1/13/2021 11:20:01 PM


RAJOURI, Jan 13: The majority of the Government Hospitals in Rajouri district have become patients referral centres wherein Sub District Hospital (SDH) Sunderbani and Nowshera have topped in making referral cases during 2020.
As per official report from Health Department from April 2020 to December 2020, which revealed that the health centres witnessed highest referral cases and the SDH Sunderbani and Nowshera have broken the record which exposes the tall claims of health facilities by the Health Department.
“Although tehsil Sunderbani and Nowshera have the highest population in the district with 70,000 and 62,000 respectively according to 2011 census wherein the SDH Sunderbani has reported with 1112 referral cases whereas SDH Nowshera with 1050 cases, which is a border tehsil,” sources said.
They further informed that similarly SDH Kandi reported 176 cases, District Hospital Rajouri reported 311 cases, SDH Darhal reported 72 cases, CHC Thannamandi reported 96 cases, SDH Kalakote reported 23 cases and PHC Manjakote 217 cases during April 2020 to December 2020. Sources in the department informed that SDH Sunderbani was without a physician for one and half year due to which the health services suffered a lot.
Block Medical Officer (BMO) Sunderbani, when contacted, said that the department has recently sent a general physician to the hospital. “Around 30-40 major and minor accident cases were reported on a daily basis at SDH Sunderbani and most of them were referred to GMC Jammu,” sources said.
Despite repeated attempts to contact BMO Nowshera, he didn’t pick up the phone for his comment. The locals alleged that it has been observed that BMO Dr Satpal never picks up phone during any emergency whereas Deputy Commissioner Rajouri and other ADCs immediately pick up calls of general masses despite being busy but Dr Satpal has a history of not responding to the calls. BMO Kalakote could not give substantial reason for referral cases.
Locals alleged that there is nexus between doctors and private nursing homes in the district. Many patients, who are referred, get treatments in private nursing homes in the district. Astonishingly it has been observed that same doctors who make referral can be seen conducting surgeries and giving consultancy to the patients.
When the Director Health Services (DHS) Jammu, Dr Renu was contacted, she said that due to establishment of three new GMCs in Jammu and Kashmir, many doctors have been deputed there, which has created dearth in peripheral hospitals. “Moreover due to COVID-19, the patients were not treated in the health centres. Some doctors have gone on deputation but we are trying to make arrangements for doctors so that people may not suffer any longer,” DHS Jammu maintained.
