Aurangabad, May 6:
The Corona warrior doctors, nurses and the medical staff are providing medical services to the Corona patients without caring for their lives. However, the administration is ignorant about their safety. Last years, the Corona warriors at the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) were given the sample PPE kits. Now again, the inferior quality PPE kits were given to the nurses and they refused to go to the Super Specialty Block wearing it on Thursday. After around 45 minutes they were given good quality PPE kits and then the matter was resolved. Presently, three companies provide PPE kits to the GMCH. The nurses had objected to the quality of the kits provided by one of these companies. The complained about it to the administration on several occasion but no action was taken. Hence, the nurses on Thursday morning refused to use these PPE kits and go on duty wearing it. The administration on receiving the information took the PPE kits back and provided other kits.
The Special Executive Officer of the block, Dr Sudhir Chaudhary said that the kits were taken back after the complaints of the nurses and they were given new kits. The administration will take action regarding the PPE kits, he said.
Meanwhile, the nurses complained that the kits are not having proper fitting and are not comfortable.Open in app
