Uttar Pradesh: Deputy CM Brajesh Pathak raps hospital staff over poor upkeep of medical stuff | Lucknow News

LUCKNOW: Deputy chief minister Brajesh Pathak on Thursday pulled up officials of Rani Lakshmibai (RLB) Hospital in Rajajipuram for discrepancies during an inspection.
The deputy CM, who also holds the health portfolio, found that a tube of the X-ray machine at the orthopaedic department was tied using bandages. Also, there was a thick layer of dirt all over the department and furniture was also broken. He also came to know that tetanus injections were missing from the pharmacy store.
Expressing displeasure, Pathak instructed officials to maintain cleanliness and warned chief medical superintendent (CMS) Dr Sangeeta Tandon of strict action if anomalies were found again.
Pathak also met an elderly patient suffering from dental pain near the hospital gate.
The patient told the DyCM that he has been suffering from dental pain for days and has come to the hospital when the pain became unbearable. He, however, complained of delay in treatment because of Covid-19 test.
On this, Pathak asked the CMS whether Covid test was necessary before starting the treatment?
The CMS replied that if any patient shows symptoms of Covid-19 then a precautionary test is must. Hearing this, Pathak asked officials to give the patient essential medicines and advised the patient to get the test done.
The DyCM also inspected the leprosy ward where he was told that 12 patients are registered, and their prescribed medicines are delivered at their homes.
The DyCM directed the CMS to use the services of manpower engaged for leprosy patients in other departments as well.
