In his report to the higher ups , MS said that the X ray plant in the hospital was installed one and a half year ago. “The plant was funded by WHO through JKMSCL and was installed by the company engineers. Three months ago the machine suffered a technical snag. Since the machine is in warrantee period engineers were intimidated to set it right,” the MS said.
The engineers, MS said, visited the hospital three times but could not set the machine right.
“We have also shot a letter to MD JKMSCL one month ago,” MS said.
He, however, said that patients care viz a viz X-ray has not been made to suffer in the hospital. “We are operating a mobile X ray ray unit in the section. Some time long exposure X rays like lumber spine take time other normal routine X ray’s are done on day to day basis,” MS said.
