ADILABAD: BJP, Congress, and TRS leaders expressed displeasure over the poor treatment and atrocious facilities provided to Covid patients at the Covid ward in Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), here.
Adilabad in-charge DCC Sajid Khan alleged that there was a shortage of oxygen supply and many patients were not provided oxygen, which is essential for Covid patients with respiratory problems.
He demanded the state government to supply oxygen cylinders or he would get empty cylinders filled up with his money. He said many empty oxygen cylinders were lying in the premises of RIMS.
Adilabad MP Soyam Bapurao held a meeting with RIMS director Bhanoth Balaram Naik and DMHO Dr Narender Rathod and other staff on Monday and reviewed the treatment being provided to Covid patients.
Bapurao expressed displeasure over the poor treatment and said patients are suffering though the Union Government is spending thousands of crores to control the epidemic. He alleged that remdesivir injection is being diverted from RIMS and being used for influential people and VIPs, which was denying proper treatment to the patients undergoing treatment at RIMS.
He said officials should take responsibility for maintaining stocks of emergency medicines and details of their usage.
Two days ago, Adilabad MLA Jogu Ramanna also inspected the Covid ward at RIMS and expressed his displeasure over the poor maintenance of the ward and raised doubts about the treatment being given to Covid patients....
