Dialysis machines stop working at MKCG

Friday, 22 May 2020 | PNS | BRAHMAPUR

The dialysis treatment at the Nephrology Department of the MKCG Medical College Hospital here has been hit as the machines have remained defunct for the last 15 days due to non-availability of a technician.

Manav Adhikar Suarakshya Manch (MASM) convenor Abani Kumar Gaya sent a letter to Chief Minister Naveen Pattnaik through the Brahmapur Sub-Collector here on Wednesday, demanding early appointment of a Technician in the Nephrology Department.

“The Government is only talking big. It is neither able to fill up a technician post not able to make the existing two dialysis machines functional,” alleged Gaya.

Hundreds of patients suffering from kidney problems of south Odisha are forced to go to local private hospitals or to Visakhapatnam due to non-functioning of the dialysis machines. “The Government is deliberately encouraging privatisation of healthcare system in the State, making healthcare more expensive and unaffordable for the poor and middle class,” he alleged futher.

Besides, Gaya demanded that the Government provide a minimum of ten new dialysis machines to the hospital soon.
