On the day when the Telangana government has done the Bhoomi Pooja for three TIMS hospitals, a shocking incident surfaced in Gandhi hospital revealing the bad infrastructure in the government hospitals. Fourteen-year-old Akshaya has been at Gandhi Hospital for the past 25 days.
Akshaya survived a road accident but her spine was severely damaged. Doctors at Gandhi Hospital took her for surgery but sent her back to the ward immediately. The reason is that the hospital is short of screws needed for the surgery. The poor girl has been waiting for the screws for the last twenty-five days to get operated on.
"While we speak about Super specialty health care and hospitals everywhere. Ideally, we should first fix the issues grappling the existing hospitals on a war footing. How ridiculous is that a surgery has been delayed by more than 25 days just because they couldn’t get screws," people are criticizing on social media.
