District Hospital Kiphire functioning without MS
Dimapur, July 6 (EMN): The Citizen Welfare Society (CWS) Kiphire during its casual visit to District Hospital Kiphire (DHK) on July 3, was surprised to learned that the District Hospital Kiphire has been functioning without Medical Superintendent (MS) for the past one and half years. “According to sources one MS was transferred from DHK in the month of March 2016 without any reliever. Since then, no MS was posted till March 2017. One MS was posted to DHK on promotion but the same officer has never been in the station since posted without any leave or reason. His joining and charge has been made only through papers and not his physical presence,” stated CWS, Kiphire Media Cell stated. The CWS questioned the concerned department as to why the remote part of the state like Kiphire has been neglected many a times.
Without the presence of HoD in a department like District Hospital has caused lots of inconvenience not only for the patient but also for all the staff of the department, CWS added.
The CWS in the interest of the general public requested the concerned department to immediately appraise the matter to the concern officer to be stationed in his posting place or replace him with other officer who can give service to the citizen.
