Nagpur: A delegation of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday met the Dean of Indira Gandhi Government Medical College & Hospital (IGGMCH) and submitted a memorandum highlighting grievances of patients and their relatives as well as lack of basic facilities. The Dean Dr Gajbhiye accepted that the IGGMCH faced problems of drinking water, sanitation and safety and security.
The AAP delegation, led by Devendra Wankhede, pressed for its various demands as follows:
• Availability of primary medicines, surgical equipment required for operations.
• Adequate number of beds in emergency ward and general wards.
• Display of lists in each ward depicting availability of medicines as well as lists of drugs the patients have to purchase from outside for surgeries.
• Lists of doctors on duty and other staff ward-wise.
• The prescription chits for buying drugs from outside should be of hospital itself and not of private medical shops.
• The patients should be treated respectfully. The doctors and other staff mistreating patients and relatives should be dealt with sternly.
• Waiting rooms for relatives of patients should be built.
• Cleanliness in wards, toilets and in the entire premises should be maintained.
The delegation warned that if the demands were not met with, the party would launch an agitation for which the administration will be responsible.
Other members of the AAP delegation include Ashok Mishra, Ashok Mauje, Ajay Banspal, Manoj Joshi, Prabhat Agrawal, Sandip Singh and others.
