Jammu:Despite being pulled up for poor facilities and sanitation, not much improvement could be seen at Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Jammu, and Shri Maharaja Gulab Singh Hospital. Toilets were still stinking, garbage was spread all over, floors were dirty and other medicare facilities had not been improved. When Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti made a surprise visit to SMGS Hospital on November 30, she expressed her displeasure over poor sanitation and lack of other facilities at the hospital. She had passed on-the-spot order for attachment of the Medical Superintendent for failing to address the problems. Despite being censured by the CM, officials of the Medical Education Department seem to have learnt no lessons. The hospitals continue to be in a mess. A heap of garbage can be seen lying on the right side of the entry gate of the paediatrician emergency ward of SMGS Hospital. Near the blood bank, dumped biomedical waste poses a threat to the lives of people. In the hospital’s main building, dust welcomes you everywhere. In the canteen area near the labour room, a heap of biomedical waste has been dumped behind a door. The situation is no better at the GMCH. People and visitors use the left side of the parking area on the hospital premises for urinating, creating a stink. All toilets near the emergency area of the GMCH produce a foul odour. Patients and their attendants say that they have no option but to use them and risk their lives. Despite repeated attempts, GMCH Principal Dr Sunanda Raina was not available for comment.
