By Newsdesk Feb19,2021

LARKANA: The Sindh Health Secretary has repatriated back services of eleven employees of Chandka Medical College Hospital (CMCH) through an Order who were relieved of from the largest Teaching Hospital of rural Sindh by the Medical Superintendent (MS), Dr. Ershard Hussain Kazmi, for their involvement in unlawful activities including strikes, instigation others for boycotts from government duties due to which poor indoor and OPD patients suffered massively for a long time in 2020., PPI learnt on Friday.

 

These employees include Allah Bux Sangi x-ray technician, Aftab Ahmed Chandio Nursing orderly, Ghulam Mustafa Kalhoro photographer, Munwar Ali Mangi Technician, Ghulam Hussain Langah Lab Technician, Peer Muhammad Mashori OT Technician, Abdul Jabbar Narejo Dresser, Noor Muhammad Mastoi and Ali Nawaz Narejo Chowkidars, Ravi Kumar and Mukesh Sanitary Workers and Mushtaque Ahmed alias Khadim Sargani Lab Assistant.

 

The MS has further been directed to check their record, in case if they are found to have been illegally promoted they will be reverted to their original posts/grades. They will submit undertaking that they will not be part of any strike in future at CMCH and MS will have to submit a report to the Administrative Department within 30 days positively, the order further added.

 

It must be added here that this 1500-bed capacity Hospital is facing multifarious issues since past 20 years which include acute shortage of medics, paramedics (as over 830 posts of doctors and paramedical staff are still vacant), cleanliness, unavailability of medicines, ambulances, proper patients’ care, corruption and theft of medicines from wards, timely rounds by the Head of Departments in the morning as no round is carried out by them in evening and night shifts, approval of SNEs of three completed projects is still pending despite passage of over five years, outdated machinery, equipment and instruments.

 

There is neither male nor female Medico Legal Officer nor there is any proper Casualty Medical Officer (CMO) and all doctors of BPS-17 and 18 have to perform 15 days rotation duty in morning, evening and night shifts which indeed is cruelty. This tertiary care Hospital caters to the needs of not only five districts of Larkana Division but poverty-stricken patients also reach here from Balochistan and other districts such as Dadu and Khairpur. There are no emergency treatment facilities in the four districts of Larkana Division and all injured patients are referred to CMCH for treatment and management due to which so many have died before reaching here hence the Health Department should be held responsible for their deaths.

 

The residents have demanded upgrading of the CMCH with provision of modern equipment, machineries, instruments, filling of all vacant posts, approval of pending SNEs, upgrading of Burns Ward and Dialysis Centre and other issues so that this major hospital could be able to delivery properly otherwise helpless ailing masses will continue to suffer. Citizens further demanded to eradicate mafias which are behind mismanagement and other unlawful activities, having support of politically influential people.
