A hospital's woes.
Byline: ZAHID ALI ZOHR - , Gilgit-Baltistan
City Hospital Kashrote, Gilgit-Baltistan, is one of the major hospitals of GB where tens of thousands of patients visit and get admitted on a daily basis. Building of this hospital is lofty and larger though, yet is devoid of basic facilities for patients.
In the chilling cold weather of GB, patients in this hospital are not even provided the blankets and pillows let alone heaters or other facilities to cope with atrocious weather. Most shockingly, the ICU wards lack the essential medical apparatus necessary to handle the emergency cases. This is a huge risk for those emergency patients and severely wounded people who are carried to ICU expecting to save their lives.
Chief Minister of GB is humbly being reminded that building a gigantic hospital building is a great initiative but, in addition, ensuring all facilities in it too is the genuine accomplishment.
