It is a duty of every regional medical department and its staff to provide quality health care and timely response as well as a quick response to the patient, their family, and attendants.
I am sitting in the department of radiology JPMC for ultrasound, and the doctor will show up maybe at 10 or 11 and will leave 11:30.
You may understand what I am talking about. And if you have a pelvic pain like me you will really feel what this one or two hours mean.
In countries like Pakistan and in locations like Karachi, long waits and the Monopoly of medical staff and the bad behaviors and conduct of so-called security staff are unbearable and it seems like it is a fate of citizen who pays taxes and charities and donations.
Which goes directly into pockets of these honorable and respected doctors and nurses and their staff.
This psychological burden and emotional labor makes us feel worse than it really has to be. And I may be sorry that no bureaucrat, politician, military or business professional will ever visit these hospitals.
However, looking to the counter of hospitals show that 70 to 80% of patients visit these hospitals and national health care facilities are soaring due to the negligence of these professionals.
This is not the case that we as a whole lack health care facilities, yet we are among the worst health care systems among nations of the world.
What do you think about this situation and what is the cause and effect of these situations on public health and wellness? It is an overall decline of faith in service and humanity in our society.
PM, chief minister, and health minister owe visit here without any protocol and without any prior information. If no check and balance is a norm and continued to be a norm will further damage the hope of citizen.
I am extremely sorry that neither government, local government or health ministry is interested in serving us nor the staff and management.
I am pointing fingers at all staff but I am saying about those who don’t know what is their duty and what it is costing Citizens, their health and their loved ones. For us, it is just a door of hell which we perceive as heaven.
Those of you who have visited here know and can resonate with my words for others it might be a voice in vain. No effect, no impacts, however it duty and duty should be treated as duty.
If the system doesn’t work well one or two rare cases can’t matter anything. Through this platform I urge everyone concerned to see this a mirror and reflect back to it.
Not everyone is a millionaire neither governmental funds are available to the common man. We all are not politicians either that even in prison 4’5 medical boards will discuss our conditions or court will give us exemption for just stress and frustration.
We are the only voice of our own, we can raise voice and the government will be forced to listen and take action against those who are misusing their powers and violating the rights of their people.
I hope this will open the eyes of the government if they haven’t closed it permanently.
