Even as the Uttar Pradesh government has always boasted of the best of health services in the state, a rather sorry scenario seems to be brewing in the district of Gonda. People were rather taken for a shock when a woman was seen running from pillar to post with her ailing husband on a stretcher dragging him along at the Gonda District Hospital. Sadly all her fervent pleas of hers fell on deaf ears.
The only help that the woman got on the hospital premises was when some strangers got her a stretcher where the ailing could be laid at ease. The woman kept wandering from this doctor to that doctor, but no doctor or hospital staff helped her. It was an onlooker who made a video and streamed it online. After the video went viral, the only thing that the hospital administration could do was giving its clarification.
The biggest question that many are asking now is that when a woman was dragging the stretcher of her sick patient, was there not a single employee in the hospital who would take them to a doctor. The Chief Medical Superintendent of Gonda District Hospital has said that the matter has come to his notice. He will investigate it and take strict action against the erring people on duty when found guilty.
