TRINKOT (Pajhwok): Local officials in central Uruzgan province accuse staff of the civil hospital of mistreating patients and illegally selling medicines and food outside.

Sayed Mohammad Sadat Nasiri, Uruzgan governor deputy made these remarks while visiting the Uruzgan Civil Hospital today.

He said he had obtained some evidence that showed healthinfo-icon workers selling hospital food and medicines in the market.

“People brought us documented evidence, we came here today based on people’ complaints,” he said, adding that the hospital staff besides not treating their patients on time also mistreated the ailing people.

“A patient here waits for hours for a doctor to examine him or her and they force patients to buy medicines in the market despite their at the hospital,” Nasiri said. He warned the hospital’s personnel to correct themselves or face a decisive action.

Meanwhile, a man Mohammad Rahim said: "I brought an injured policeman to the hospital. I waited for a very long time but no doctor moved to examine him and they only wasted our time.”

Uruzgan public health director Khan Agha Miakhel acknowledged problems in some state-run hospitals but said he would discuss the issues with officials concerned for solution.

Uruzgan residents had earlier also complained about similar problems in the civil hospital.
