District Hospital Confusion

Confusion over who should head the district hospital is causing inconvenience to patients in Bidar.

21bg_bidar_hosp_22_2981802fIn the last couple of weeks, the State government has issued four circulars appointing two different officials as the head of the 300-bed hospital. The district surgeon from the Health and Family Welfare Department and a medical superintendent from the Medical Education Department have assumed charge of the hospital, on rotation basis.

This has affected the day-to-day administration of the hospital and caused confusion among doctors. Signing of files, deputing of officers and other routine tasks are being affected. Approving X-rays and additional diagnostics, certifying autopsies, getting advanced medication of patients and/or extending their stay in the hospital, procuring anti-snake venom, etc. need approval from the head of the hospital. “We are tired of running from one office to another for these tasks every day,” a doctor said.

No clarity

The government does not seem to be clear on the issue. In a letter on June 25, the had issued orders for the government medical colleges in Karwar, Kodagu, Koppal, Gadag, Kalaburagi and Chamarajanagar, which all are attached to hospitals, conferring administrative control of the district hospital to the dean/principal of the medical college. Interestingly, Bidar was left out of the order.

For the last few years, Shivakumar Shetkar, medical superintendent from the Bidar Institute of Medical Sciences (BRIMS) has been supervising the hospital. A few days ago, C.S. Ragate, district surgeon, took over as the government said the hospital belonged to the Health and Family Welfare Department. In a week, Dr. Shetkar was instructed by the Medical Education Department to take charge of the hospital. Then, in a few days later, the government issued another order giving back the charge to Dr. Ragate. In the meantime, C. Channanna, BRIMS director, wrote to the government seeking clarification on the issue. As of now, both the officers remain posted in the district hospital.

District in-charge Minister Eshwar Khandre maintains that the issue has been sorted out. “Health Department secretary Shalini Rajneesh has confirmed to me that the hospital will remain under the Health and Family Welfare Department. In order to ensure coordination, the district surgeon, who belongs to the Health Department, will report to the BRIMS director,” he said.

However, teachers in the medical college say this system may not work well. The government has announced that it will increase the intake of BRIMS from 100 to 150. “To seek permission to do so from the Medical Council of India (MCI), the government needs to prove we have a 750-bed hospital. The district hospital has 300 beds and the new hospital building has place for 450 beds. Therefore, we need to pool these beds and present our case before the MCI. If one hospital runs under the college and the other under the Health Department, our case may be weakened,” a senior professor said.

When asked about this, Mr. Khandre said he was aware of the issue. “I will hold detailed discussions with the Health Minister and Medical Education Minister Sharan Prakash Patil and make the arrangements to ensure we are prepared for the MCI inspection,” he said.

AAP candidate from Bidar loses his job

AapNewsThe decision to contest Lok Sabha polls has cost Chandrakanth Kulkarni, the Aam Admi Party candidate from Bidar, his job. The management of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College has issued a termination notice to the Associate Professor. It says that according to the bylaws of GND Education Society, which runs the college, employees cannot contest elections or involve in political activity. The management decided to terminate Prof. Kulkarni as he violated these rules. “Such gross misconduct will not be tolerated,” said a notice signed by Ashok Biradar, the principal. “I was intimated of the management decision on Saturday,” he told presspersons on Sunday. “I have been given three days to reply. I will send them my explanation. If the management goes ahead with its decision, I will challenge it in court,” Mr. Kulkarni said. He said that long before he filed his nomination papers, he had met and requested Balbir Singh, president of the society to allow him to contest. “Mr. Singh said I could contest. But later, they changed their mind and sent me this notice,” Mr. Kulkarni said. He said contesting elections was a fundamental right of Indian citizens. “But, the society’s laws are against these rights,” Mr. Kulkarni said. He called it a conspiracy by capitalist vested interests. “However, I will not fret over this. I will continue to work hard in my campaign even if I were to lose my life,” Mr. Kulkarni said. He likened his contest to the race between a hare and a tortoise. “I am pitted against bigwigs. But I believe in slow and steady wins the race,” Mr. Kulkarni said. Warning Mr. Singh said the college had warned Mr. Kulkarni against contesting elections before issuing him the termination notice. “We had advised him against political activity. His requests for leave were cancelled solely for this reason. But he had made up his mind,” Mr. Singh said. He said the society’s rules were not against citizens’ right to contest elections. Lakshman Chauhan, a professor with Karnataka College, a government-aided institution in Bidar, contested and won the Assembly elections from Hulsoor constituency in 1994. He returned to teach in the college after his five year term.
