Ludhiana: Clean water for visitors and patients at Mother and Child Care at civil hospital is still a major problem and dream for people. There are three water tanks in MCH and two are non-functional and one is not having filter.
Moreover, other water tanks installed in different labs and parts are not functioning properly.
During a visit to civil hospital, one water cooler installed outside blood bank is non- functioning and staff members and patients claimed that this is very difficult as regularly patients and visitors have to suffer from several problems.
Another water cooler installed at diagnostic lab is also not started as construction work is going at lab. However, hundreds of patients and visitors come regularly as there is rise in mercury and dire need of functioning of water coolers.
Harjinder Singh, visitor at civil hospital said, “My relative is admitted in the hospital from past several days. There is dire need of water as there is regular walking in the hospital. I am requesting the authorities to repair the water cooler which is very important”.
Other water cooler installed near OPD and emergency ward are also not working as staff and visitors claimed that water coolers are not working from past three months as several complaints have been given to the authorities but still in vain.
One of the doctor’s on requesting anonymity said, “Higher officials are least interested to resolve the basic problems which are directly connected with the people.
One of the employees at civil hospital claimed that from past few weeks water tanks are not working and numerous complaints have been given by employees and patients verbally to higher authorities but authorities concerned have failed to do the same.
Civil surgeon Rajeev Bhalla said, “I will direct the concerned officer to correct the problems soon, so, that visitors and patients would not suffer from any problem”.
