Renovation of wards in SMHS creates Chaos

Patients face difficulties in finding space on beds

Srinagar, Sep 04 (KNS): Random - as patients call it - renovation of many wards in state Hospital Srinagar has left many indoor patients in lurch.
Many patients told KNS that the SMHS authorities have undertaken renovation works in Ward 3 and 7 leaving scores of indoor patients wondering for space and bed.
They alleged that authorities have not made considerable alternate arrangements for those patients who after being admitted were supposed to be shifted to these wards. They added that each bed in other wards carries 2-3 patients making it extremely difficult for the patients.
The administration meanwhile said that alternate arrangements were in place.
Medical Superintendent Dr. Saleem Tak told KNS that elaborate alternate arrangements have been made to accommodate the patients of these two wards. (KNS)
