None should die in search of hospitals, says lawmaker Lingden
Kathmandu : Member of House of Representatives (HoR) Rajendra Prasad Lingden has urged the hospital management committees to manage effective treatment to the patients.
While inspecting the hospitals in the district today, HoR member Lingden said, “Ensure such situation that no one will have to die in search of hospitals.”
Lingden, the lone lawmaker from the Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP), today inspected State Hospital, Omsai Hospital and B&C Hospital in the district and urged the hospital management committees to manage effective treatment facilities in the present critical time of the coronavirus pandemic.
On the occasion, leader Lingden interacted with doctors and management teams about the gonging health treatment systems in the district.
Superintendent at the COVID Special Hospital in the Province No. 1, Dr Pitambar Thakur complained though the hospital was providing treatment to the coronavirus infected patients and other regular patients, they were still not getting allowances announced by the government.
Lawmaker Lingden also met with B & C hospital chair Durga Prasain and took stock about the ongoing treatment facilities in the hospital. Lingden complained that some patients died in course of searching for hospital as most of the hospitals are reportedly declining from providing treatment to COVID-19 infected patients, citing lack of beds and appropriate resources, including human resources.
