LONG WAIT AT B’NGIR DHH COUNTER: PATIENTS SUFFER
Saturday, 16 July 2016 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
The process of registering names at the registration counter at the District Headquarters Hospital (DHH) here has become a tedious one, taking it more than an hour.
“I waited in the queue since 8 am and just got the ticket after two hours, said a person on Friday. As per the rule, a person has to register at the hospital counter first and then show or check with doctors for treatment of his or her ailment. Without a ticket from the counter, a doctor is likely to refuse treatment.
Out of the three computers supposed to function, only one is working. Moreover, there is no separate counter for women.
CDMO Dr RN Tripathy said that a new place at the hospital premises is being developed where there would be three counters.
When contacted by this correspondent. district Collector Ashis Thakare said, “I will look into the matter.”
