Stung by Nagpur Today report, Chairman of NMC’s Health Committee visits hospitals

Nagpur: Apparently stung by the report flashed by Nagpur Today on Thursday (August 27) titled “NMC’s paralyzed health services: Mockery of needy patients” the Chairman of Medical Services and Health Committee Devendra Mehar visited various hospitals and health centres runs by Nagpur Municipal Corporation and inspected the affairs. Mehar took rounds of Sadar Diagnostic Centre (Rog Nidan Kendra), Indira Gandhi Hospital, Pachpaoli Sutikagruha (Maternity Home) and Pachpaoli Ayurvedic Hospital. The Chairman found that a large number of patients visit these hospitals but get hassled due to paucity of doctors and supporting staff. Mehar was outraged to find unclean atmosphere and poor maintenance of the hospitals.

The Chairman of Medical Services and Health Committee Devendra Mehar was informed about theft of some goods in Pachpaoli Maternity Home as the surround wall of it had given away. Similarly, Mehar also noticed encroachments in the open land of Pachpaoli Ayurvedic Hospital. The Panchkarma and Indira Gandhi Hospital depicted a very picture with water leaking at various places. The enraged Chairman directed the concerned authorities to improve the situation at the earliest so that the patients coming to these hospitals are served in better way.

Those who accompanied the Chairman Mehar include Member Yogesh Tiwari, Medical Officer Dr Pradeep Dasarwar, Dr Joshi, Dr Chivhane, Dr Swati Matkari, Dr Jichkar, Dr Lanjewar, Dr Bhivgade, Dr Mukund Khuje and others.
