Vij visits Panipat civil hospital, orders suspension of orthopaedic doctor, show cause notice to SMO

Chandigarh: Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Saturday made a surprise visit to Panipat Civil Hospital and in view of negligence in health services, he on the spot ordered the suspension of an orthopaedic doctor and issued show cause notice to Senior Medical Officer (SMO) for bad condition of toilets.

Mr Vij first visited the emergency ward and interacted with several patients about medicines being provided free of cost to them. In response to this, one patient replied that he was asked to bring plaster material from outside. Hence, the Minister directed to suspend the orthopedic doctor, Dr Pradeep.

Further, during the rounds unhappy with the bad conditions of the toilets, Mr Vij directed to take strict action against the supervisor and issue show cause notice to SMO Dr Alok Jain.

The Minister said that he himself is committed towards further improvement in the health services and no negligence would be allowed in it. He also visited female and general wards of the hospital.

The minister has been making a number of surprise visits to medical establishments in the state. Earlier this month, During a surprise visit at Ambala Cantonment Civil Hospital, the Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij ordered the suspension of two orthopedic doctors for prescribing medicines which were not available in the hospital and could only be procured from pharmacies outside the hospital.

  1. The first thing to be investigated is : Were the medicines/ plaster available in the hospital? You cannot suspend doctors working in rural hospitals with limited infrastructure just for political mileage. It is the minister\’s duty to listen to the doctors\’ problems as well and solve those instead of pandering to the largest common denominator. As a newspaper did the journalists try to find out if those medicines/plaster were available in the pharmacy and were they of the required quality?

    THE DOCTOR CAN FILE A CASE AGAINST THE MINISTER ALOUNG WITH HIS BABUS THE BUREAUCRATES FOR PROVIDING REQUIRED EQUIPMENTS, DEVICES, ITEMS, DRUGS, PLASTER ROLLS, NONABSORBABLE COTTON PADDING ROLLS, AND BANDAGES . HE CAN ALSO WRITE TO MCI GRIEVANCES CELL ABOUT THE DISORDERLY , DISCRIMINATION ACTION BY THE BABUS AND THEIR BOSSES. IT LIKE ASKING WIFE TO COOK MATTON MASALA, CHICKEN 66, PANNIER BUTTER MASALA BY GIVING PALAK AND BRINJAL .

  3. many medicine not available in gov. hospitals… many of them sub standard thanks to honest ias secretary…
    in todays world doctors should not write outside medicine on humeneterian grounds…sadly…. instead let pupil suffer……. sad very said. ..
    doctors in future never work on humenaterian ground..

  4. Would be nice if the people also are given power and rights to surprise visit the ministries to suspend the nikamma officils there.

    The steps taken are admirable
    Same steps must be taken in every government establishments
    Also the political parties
    Hopefully this is done to win sympathy for people not for election stunt
