Imphal, April 27,

Chief Minister N. Biren Singh led government sincere effort to help the poor people in getting medical care at government hospital at the most minimum affordable rate turn out as another joke to the people as patients undergoing treatment at RIMS are denied Continous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) despite having facility in the hospital.
Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) is one among the most reputed hospital in the North East India which produced many excellent doctors amidst several reports of corruptions and malpractice. The hospital is on the process of upgrading to the status of AIMS and following that on January 26, this year for departments – G.I Surgery department , Nephrology Department , Neurology Department and Cardiology department have been upgraded as autonomous department.
A patient with Kidney problem undergoing treatment or being treated at Nephrology department need CAPD which has to be done by surgery doctors. Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)  is a process where a catheter is surgically inserted with one end in the abdomen and the other protruding from the skin. The catheter is then connected to a tubing set and drained out the peritoneal cavity into a pre connected bag. This process is compulsory as follow up for Kidney treatment which is done at Nephrology department.
However, as the doctors at the Surgery section refused to undergo the CAPD, the patients are advice to do the same at private clinic which cost from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 20,000. Patients from poor family have to undergo it as it is essential procedure by spending the huge amount.
CMHT a pioneer scheme of the Chief Minister have no meaning if the patients are tortured by the doctors of institution like RIMS. Mention may be made that one Post graduate student of  RIMS had written a letter to the prime Minister of India stating the hospital as the worst hospital where doctors prefer to stay at private clinic more than serving in the hospital.
