On one hand, the Nagpur city is getting well equipped with its Medical Hub in Dhantoli-Ramdaspeth areas, on the other, all medical facilities claimed to be made available on government level are seen worse and worse. It becomes self-revealed from a report submitted by the state government to the Nagpur Bench of Mumbai High Court recently.
The report submitted by additional secretary, medicine and treatment department of Maharashtra Government , Medha Gadgil reveals the worse condition of government hospitals where there is scarcity of desired medical facilities and poor upkeep while the proposed medical hub will be depending on the mercy of private hospitals. It implies that those who are affluent will be able to obtain better treatment while those who are poor will have crave for the same.
It is worth mentioning here that there are 1168 government hospitals in which as many as 1452 ambulance-vans are lying out-of-order. Not only this, there is a dearth of 1153 doctors in government hospitals. Adding to such a horrible situation is that there is no electricity in as many as 208 hospitals, no water facility in 27 hospitals and no meals available in 1522 hospitals. Unfortunately, the common patients are hapless to bear with the existing lacunae in government hospitals.
