I would like to draw the attention of the concern authorities to the irritating behavior of staff in government hospitals, especially in Sindh Government Hospital, Karachi. The doctors and paramedical staff do not treat people like human beings. I believed that every doctor’s first duty is to help the patients, but they seem to ignore the patients and are busy in personal work such as talking on the phone or with other colleagues. Many free medicines are available in the hospital, but physicians do not prescribe available medicine and poor patients are asked to buy expensive medicine from medical stores.
request the concerned authority to look into the matter and make it easier for the poor to get medical help.
