In Balochistan, Doctors Perform Surgery Under Cell Phone Light

In Civil Hospital Quetta the continuous power outage due to snow and rain has forced physicians to conduct an operation under the cell phone light, since the hospital has no generator.

The trauma and emergency center of the hospital was deplorable due to the inadequacies of its managing director, according to the declaration issued by the Balochistan Young Doctors ‘ Association (YDA).

YDA spokesperson Rahim Khan Babar said in the statement the operation theatre of the Centre did not have slippers for the patients. Moreover, lack of equipment and supply of medicines were other issues that need to be addressed, he said. “X-Ray machines and other equipment automatically shut down due to power breakdown as the biggest hospital goes without generator,” said Babar

He added that the center was visited by Balochistan CM Jam Kamal, by the President of the Balochistan Assembly Abdul Quddus Bizenja and by Jamal Mandokhail, Chief Juste of Balochistan, and Muddaser Waheed by the Provincial Secretary of Health.

Babar urged the CM to take notice of the situation and resolve it on immediate basis. He also stressed management to convert contractual staff and doctors into permanent employees to improve the situation of the hospital
