Alleged mismanagement at TMCH

By Correspondent

TEZPUR, July 17 - People from far-flung areas who throng the Tezpur Medical College Hospital for treatment have complained of �mismanagement� by the authorities concerned.

Alleged mismanagement in all departments and unhygienic conditions have painted a negative image of the medical college. Patients and their attendants alleged that most of the departments, including Ophthalmology, do not provide any free treatment to patients.

�Recently, four patients, including my mother, were admitted in the Ophthalmology department for free cataract operations as per rules. However, the receptionist at the counter demanded money, saying it was to be paid to the doctor attending to my mother,� alleged Patu Dev of Phulaguri area.

Another attendant from the Balishuti area, Bishnu Nath alleged that the doctor took money from him for fitting a lens on his mother�s eye though it was supposed to be free of cost. �I am not even sure whether the lens was fitted as no document was given to me for it,� he maintained.

People alleged that most of the doctors of the hospital remain busy in private practice. The well-equipped blood bank has also failed to meet the needs of the people due to the lackadaisical attitude of the employees manning it and their misbehaviour with visitors.

Recently, one Bhwa Gur of Thelamara area approached the blood bank on behalf of his wife who was suffering from anaemia. She was admitted to the Gynaecology department, but Gur was allegedly refused blood, leading to the deterioration of his wife�s condition.

The authorities concerned have failed to maintain cleanliness in the medical college with the result that the campus emits a foul odour, the people alleged. They called for the rectification of these problems.
