MCI focus on PG students on second day of RIMS scrutiny

The administration of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) remained on its toes on the second day of the visit of the inspection team from the Medical Council of India (MCI), making efforts to project the best units and practices and concealing the apparently gloomy areas.

The doctors were in a non-cooperative mood following the unprecedented move of MCI to verify each and every original document related to their appointment. It was the turn of the PG students on Tuesday to produce their original documents.

Following media reports related to adverse comments of the inspection team, the RIMS administration restricted the entry of the media on Tuesday, particularly from accompanying the team members, when they were on a visit to the wards and inspected the equipment installed in different speciality units.

The three-member team comprising head of the department of anaesthesia, Banaras Hindu University, V Rastogi; professor in microbiology at the National Medical College, Kolkata, Manas Sarkar; and professor, department of physiology, R G Kar Medical College, Kolkata, inspected the paediatric ICU and directed the administration to upgrade the equipment fitted in the ward. The team also expressed dissatisfaction over the maintenance and operation of some of the medical equipment, particularly in the wake of absence of expert para medical staff trained to handle them.

The team also visited RIMS extension centres at Oremanjhi and Doranda asking the hospital administration to provide hostel facility for doctors and medical staff. Asking the director of the institute, Tulsi Mahto, to ensure that doctors remain present in these centres and cater to the patients on a regular basis, the inspection team returned to RIMS where document and physical verification of PG students continued. source-timesofindia.indiatimes.com
