Kangan: Unauthorised parking of vehicles in front of the main entrance of Trauma Hospital Kangan is causing immense hardships to patients on daily basis.
The mismanagement is quite visible at the hospital as a number of vehicles remain parked at its main entrance, hampering the movement of patients and ambulances.
Residents said that owing to the ongoing construction of new hospital building near the area, the parking of vehicles has become a serious problem. They wanted the authorities to make arrangements for parking and relive the patients of hardships caused due to the haphazard parking.
“The parking in the hospital should be exclusively for staff, patients and their attendants. The shop keepers and other people who park their vehicles in the hospital should be discouraged from doing so,” a patient said.
Meanwhile, the residents said that the 70 bedded Maternity and Child Hospital, which is under construction, should be completed as early as possible.
Despite repeated attempts, block medical officer, Kangan, could not be contacted for a comment.
