LAHORE: The disarray in government hospitals unleashed with the young doctors’ strike, could not be set in absolute order with the Pak Army Medical Corps’s doctors, SAMAA reports Tusday.
Situation in various departments including OPDs at Punjab hospitals could not be improved even after Pak Army’s doctors took over the healthcare responsibilities.
Medical Corps doctors are seen working hard in Civil Hospital of Gujranwala; however, the number of patients is so big that condition seems to be out of control even with some young doctors who resumed their professional responsibilities.
Meantime, the hospital management says the situation is under complete control. Medical Superintendent Gujranwala Civil Hospital, Dr Zafar Iqbal claims to be coping with the situation quite well.
Army’s doctors are functioning also in Allied Hospital of Faisalabad—the worst hit by the Young Doctors Association (YDA) strike—; however, patients are far more than to be tackled with small number of doctors.
Patients say the uniformed doctors have better demeanor than the civilian ones.
Multan’s Nishtar Hospital is not different where the Army’s doctors are earnestly trying to grapple with the massive number of streaming patients.
Zahid Akhtar Zaman, Medical Superintendent of Nishtar Hospital said there are problems as military doctors are in small numbers; however, troubles have whittled down with the senior doctors who have joined their duties. SAMAA
