Doctors halt services at Lahan hospital


SIRAHA: Out Patient Department (OPD) service of Ram Kumar Uma Prasad Memorial Hospital at Lahan came to a total halt due to the strike by temporary doctors working on the contract basis.
They stopped OPD service from Sunday demanding that they should be provided with annual uniform allowance for this year like the past years.
The hospital administration discontinued giving regular uniform allowance this year, compelling doctors to stage strike against the decision of the hospital administration by stopping the OPD service.
At the hospital, 80 patients who had asked for appointment with doctors for treatment was affected due to the unexpected strike by the doctors.
“We have requested to provide regular uniform allowance for the doctors working on the contract with Sunil Kushwaha, medical superintend of the hospital. But the hospital did not address our demand despite the frequent request for allowance,” Rohit Shah and Saroj Kumar Yadav, strike leading doctors, said.
Clarifying the reason of discontinue of uniform allowance, Maya Nath Acharya, chief accountant of Lahan Municipality said that no budget has allocated in this topic. Hospital goes under the ownership of province government.
The province government will provide all the facilities with salary from coming fiscal year. The administration is facing budget crisis even for providing the salary for Jestha and Ashar months’. The uniform allowance is not possible in such situation, he clarified.
The hospital in the past used to be crowded with the patients from Sirha, Sapatri and Udayapur has witnessed the decreasing of number of patients because of degradation in the hospital’s quality service.
Due to the lack sanitation, presence of doctors and trend of referring patients to other clinics and hospitals , the quality of health service of the hospital has gone down remarkably, Shiva Narayan Mahara, local said.
