Residents Demand Action Concerns Over Taluk Hospital Operations

Local resident Ratnakar Shetty and neighbors have issued a written appeal to district health officers, raising serious concerns about the state of affairs at the taluk hospital in the city.


Issues Raised:

  • Improper Waste Disposal: Residents highlighted the discharge of untreated affluent water from the hospital into roadside drains, causing inconvenience and health hazards.
  • Infrastructure Deficiencies: The lack of proper facilities in the operation theater and the absence of a Public Relations Officer (PRO) to assist patients were also noted, indicating systemic failures in hospital management.
  • Call for Administrative Reform: Criticism was directed towards the designated medical officer and the chief of the administrative board for failing to address these issues, prompting calls for their replacement.

Demands and Warning:

  • Recruitment of Competent Staff: The appeal urged health authorities to appoint a medical officer capable of effective administration to address public concerns and improve hospital operations.
  • Potential Protests: Residents warned of future protests if their grievances are not promptly addressed, underscoring the urgency of the situation.

This appeal underscores the importance of addressing community concerns and ensuring the efficient functioning of healthcare facilities to safeguard public health and well-being.
