Jamshedpur, Dec. 31: Patients at the MGM Medical College and Hospital may soon have a comfortable stay as authorities are investing in fowler beds.
Hospitech, a Malaysian bed brand, can be adjusted to suit the needs of patients. A consignment of 225 beds, including 25 fowler beds has been delivered to the hospital.
That's not all. Hospital authorities have received 10 tables, too.
Sources said former hospital superintendent R.Y. Choudhary had taken the initiative to change hospital beds, which have been damaged over the years. He had placed an order with an agency to supply beds to the medical college and hospital. In addition to the beds, order for 300 mattresses had also been placed.
The beds and tables have cost the hospital around Rs 17,75,000 while the mattresses have the cost the authorities around Rs 2 lakh.
Of the 25 fowler beds, 15 have been placed in the emergency room while 10 in the burn-care unit of the hospital. New labour tables have also been placed.
Dr Ashok Singh, the deputy superintendent, said the move is part of the modification programme. "Hospital authorities had plans to replace the beds since long, but due to lack of funds, the initiative could not be taken. The former superintendent had placed the orders for us," he said.
Now, A.N. Mishra, the principal of MGM Medical College, has taken over as hospital superintendent. On his first day as hospital superintendent, he took rounds of various departments this morning and took stock of the facilities available here.
During the inspection, Mishra scanned the kitchen and interacted with patients in various wards and asked them their opinions on services provided to them. "The ambience of the hospital is not right. I need to work on it," said the new hospital superintendent.
While speaking to The Telegraph, Mishra said, all that matters in a hospital is the quality of service. He said when the hospital has qualified doctors and necessary infrastructure, why should it not stand up to the people's expectations. "It makes no difference, whether a patient is given a costly bed or an ordinary one, but the treatment must always be super," he said.Source:.telegraphindia
