Punjab CM’s surprise visit keeps hospital admin on their toes


Kasur June 21 (TNS): Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s random “spot check” visit to the District Headquarters Hospital Kasur kept everyone in the hospital on their toes.

The chief minister, who had dashed into the hospital without any protocol and without taking his personal staff in the loop, expressed his displeasure over the absence of the medical superintendent and deputy superintendent and non-wearing of uniform by the janitorial staff.

He said that there was a need to thrash out a system of effective monitoring to make the service further better.

The CM also directed that wards should be set up according to the needs and requirements of the patients and doctors and the paramedical staff should also guide the patients about the preventive measures besides providing them best health services.

The chief minister visited different wards and inquired after the health of patients and asked about the availability of medicine and other healthcare facilities. The patients said that the health service in the hospital has relatively improved after he has started health facilities at various hospitals across the province.

The chief minister issued orders to immediately suspend the absent DMS and said that such an attitude could not be-be tolerated.

“The Punjab government has facilitated the doctors, nurses and other paramedical staff who are serving the ailing humanity with commitment,” he said.

“I cannot tolerate any leniency or negligence in service of ailing humanity,” he said.

While talking to the media, Shahbaz said that tremendous improvement has been brought to the hospital and added that he will continue to inspect hospitals in the future.
