Lucknow, May 28 (IANS) After receiving feedback that all is not well in Lucknow hospitals, UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath has now set out to verify facts himself.
After surprise inspection of the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital on Wednesday, the chief minister, on Thursday, reached the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Civil hospital in the state capital to check out the arrangements and facilities available there.
The chief minister asked the staff and the doctors to ensure best possible treatment of all patients, including the Corona positive patients.
He saw the cleanliness level of the hospital and also interacted with patients in the emergency ward. The chief minister also visited a quarantine centre.
The chief minister, during his Team 11 meeting on Wednesday, had asked concerned ministers to visit the hospitals in their departments and make a reality check.
While Yogi Adityanath himself went to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital, accompanied by medical education minister Suresh Khanna, he sent health minister Jai Pratap Singh to inspect the Balarampur hospital.
At the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital, the chief minister expressed his displeasure at the fact that patients were waiting endlessly at the triage area. Ward boys were seen moving around without masks and the norms of social distancing were also being violated.
