He ordered to shift the AC from the MS office to the pediatric ward because of the high temperature.
“It has been learnt that the AC system of the ward has not been functioning well for the last many days,” Wattoo said.
“One is appalled at the insensitivity of the administration of the hospital towards the sufferings of the patients. The ACs of empty classrooms were running whereas, the infants were crying because of high temperature.”
Issues in hospitals are more with administration personnel than doctors. AC rectification was their responsibility. They even create environment forcing doctors away who are willing to serve away from main cities.
Take strict action and punish the culprits… Notice is not enough.. Mr. CM
DC has ordered to suspend biomedical engineer Luqman Tabish because of his failure to fix the AC.
In conclusion, what punishment do you think is correct for such culprits. Also, what are your thoughts?
