2 weeks into inception, 80 doctors, nurses resign from COVID Jumbo Facility; Agency backs out of management
Pune: Within two weeks of its inauguration, the Jumbo COVID facility at College of Engineering Pune (COEP) is facing tremendous problems in managing the treatment of patients as almost 80 medical staff including almost 40 doctors and 40 nurses have resigned. The resignation came after several alleged instances of gatecrashing, threats and abuses on the hospital staff took place in the facility.
The health facility already has more than 300 patients and at the time of appointment there were 50 doctors of 72 nurses but now only 35% of staff are left to manage the whole facility.
In view of the increasing cases of COVID victims, the authorities introduced the Jambo facility for Pune on the 25th of August, and currently, 350 beds are operational in the facility.
