Basti Dawakhanas Remain Deserted Due to Lack of Staff

The state government has started 150 Basti dawakhanas for the poor and slum-dwellers. But the plight of these dawakhanas and their resourcefulness to the patients is questionable. One such basti dawakhana that wears a deserted look is the one located at Saheb Nagar near LB Nagar.


The place provides health services only twice a week. During the rest of the week, the place has no people as there is no doctor. The dawakhana is supposed to have a nurse, a compounder, a testing person, and of course, a doctor. But at Saheb Nagar, the doctor is not to be seen. The nurse is also available only occasionally, and the compounder barely knows anything about the medicines.


Actually, the dawakhanas were started to treat the locals complaining of seasonal illnesses such as cold, cough, fever, and diarrhea. Many people are forced to go to neighborhood private clinics, which are quite costly for many. At times, when the doctor is available, the cases are referred to other government hospitals.


The locals complain that the purpose of basti dawakhanas is not being served. In fact, a pregnant lady with fever and a dog-bitten boy had to go back as there was no one to attend to them.


When contacted, the district deputy medical officer informed that the doctor had gone on leave and that the department was trying hard to find someone to take his place till he returns, along with sending a nurse and pharmacist.
