Taking prompt cognizance of complaint highlighted by a local news paper regarding the functioning of Government LD Hospital, Coordinator in the Chief Minister’s Grievance Cell, Tassaduq Mufti, today deputed two senior officers of the Chief Minster’s Secretariat to physically verify the genuineness of the complaint in the hospital.
The visiting officers did not find any serious lapse in the functioning of the hospital as reported in the news paper, however due to heavy rush of the patients the only lift which is in operation was found most busy and over burdened with the result the patients are facing difficulty. The second lift in the new building is under repair by the JKPCC as the same was damaged during 2014 floods.
The hospital authorities briefed the visiting officers that the old building has two functional elevators, while as the new building has not been properly handed over by the JKPCC to the hospital which is causing problems in its maintenance and upkeep.
The visiting officers also inspected the services in the hospital including bio-medical segregation system, sanitation, on-going construction work of STP which were found satisfactory. They urged the executing agency to speed up the pace of STP construction and repair of lift to make these facilities functional at the earliest.
