Imphal, Nov. 2: A post graduate student at Regional Institute of Medical Science, Imphal has written to the Prime Minister stating that the institute is the most corrupt hospital he had ever been or heard.
The Post Graduate Student, who had been in the institute for around 4 months, and who does not want to reveal his name, said that sometime he along with other medical practitioners treated patients without proper investigation as the Institute does not have any facilities for investigation and because the patient party can’t afford to do test outside the institute.
The student wrote the letter to the Prime Minister of India for his kind attention during middle week of September, 2017. As per his write up MRI machine installed did not work since he came to the Institute, CT scan had been shut down for nearly a month, there is no ICU which is just ward named SICU, with no ventilators, no monitor, but a bed and a cupboard, Neonatal ICU has been put up just for namesake by putting fake sign in some forsaken rooms, for the whole hospital only one USG machine is working, there is no USG machine in the labour room which is the most important thing during delivery, above all of these patients have to buy all the medication including Iron and folic acid with their money, there are no defibrillators in casualty, toilet are the worst. The student further wrote that no authority in the Institution wanted to improve the hospital as each of them runs private hospital of their own. And funds sanctioned for the improvement of the institution are pocketed by the authority for their own good.
