“Yes, we have directed them to teach the staff working under them to behave properly with the patients. If patients know everything then why would he come to the doctor and they need proper counselling and information regarding their disease and treatment,” Dr Thora told reports Free Press Journal.
The Heads of Department also took a decision to appoint an outside agency from Delhi or Mumbai to complete the infrastructural work of the paediatric OT. The decision to give the job to an outsider was taken because the Public Works Department has refused to undertake the work.
