Delhi CM makes surprise visit to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital

May 25, 2017 11:00 PM
  • Found several deficiencies after talking to several patients
  • CM assures action against officials at fault
  • Free medicine, test and investigation policy to be implemented properly at any cost: CM

 Chief Minister of Delhi Mr. Arvind Kejriwal made a surprise visit to the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital in Mangolpuri on Thrusday (25.05.2017) to meet the patients and check the proper functioning of the hospital.

Three days ago, the Chief Minister of Delhi had directed the Chief Secretary to ensure 100% availability of medicines, consumables and functioning equipment in all Delhi government hospitals and to certify it.

Mr. Kejriwal visited all departments of the hospital, apart from the wards and pharmacy and talked to a huge number of patients. The Chief Minister was accompanied by the Minister of Health, Health Secretary and other officials of the health department.While several patients told the Chief Minister that they were satisfied with the functioning of the hospital, number of them complained of several problems.

“I was on a surprise visit to the Sanjay Gandhi hospital; I found there are many deficiencies in the hospital. Our government has taken a vow that money won’t be an issue in any of the works in health and education sectors. We have made all medicines, tests and investigations free in all Delhi government hospitals. Inspite of that, I came to know here that patients here are being asked get their tests done from outside, they are being asked to buy several medicines from outside, during operation they are being asked to buy several consumables from outside. In some cases they are being asked to get some basic tests from outside. This means the policy is not being followed at the lower level,” said Mr. Kejriwal after the inspections.

He further added, “I have asked the MS to take action. I will also take action and will also talk to the LG in this regard and take appropriate action. I will make more such surprise checks in the days to come. We will make all systemic changes required. Some cases of money being taken at some level was also reported to me by the patients, identification will be done and stern action will be taken”.

All medicines will be provided for free, all tests and investigations should be done inside the hospital for free. We will do whatever is required for the proper implementation and welfare of the patients at the hospitals. If required the MS will be changed, added the Chief Minister.
