Super of Panskura Hospital attends to patients amid ceasework by junior docs
Kolkata: On a day when patients were denied treatment in most of the medical college hospitals across the state, the Panskura Superspeciality Hospital has set an example where the hospital superintendent attended to the patients at his chamber.
The gesture shown by the medical superintendent has been appreciated by the patients and their relatives who visited the hospital. They said that it was not possible for a single doctor to attend to the large number of patients visiting various outpatient departments, but the attempt initiated by the top official of the hospital is commendable.
It was learnt that the hospital super Sachindranath Rajak found many patients standing in queue in the morning, while many of them had started returning home, after which he picked up his stethoscope and sat at his chamber to attend to the patients.
"As the junior doctors decided to observe ceasework, I decided to attend to the patients. Many of the patients were leaving the hospital in the morning as there were no doctors in the OPDs," Rajak said.
Sundarlal Das, a patient who went to the hospital said: "We do not support the attack on doctors. Those who were involved in the incident must be punished. But the doctors should not deny the patients visiting the hospitals. We welcome the gesture by the hospital super."
