Wails and woes of nurses
Muzaffargarh: Students getting training in a nursing school attached
with the DHQ Hospital in Muzaffargarh have many complaints against the hostel
and the hospital administration.
Most of trainee nurses are suffering
from tuberculosis, typhoid, scabies and other diseases because of the unhygienic
conditions of the hostel which, they claim, is not worth-living.
Naeem, a third-year student, said that dozens of trainee nurses were patients of
TB, typhoid and other diseases, and many of them have undergone appendicitis
She said the 240 students had only four washrooms in the
girls' hostel which were in the utter state of dirtiness.
several students were suffering from scabies and other diseases, but the
hospital administration never bothered to take action against the officials
responsible for maintaining hygiene.
Zoya, who is herself a TB patient,
said that she contracted the disease after she took residence in the hostel and,
on the advice of the doctor, she moved to her home.
She said her parents
later got her admitted to the DHQ Hospital, but the hospital administration
refused to provide free medicines to her claiming that such a facility was only
available to indoor patients.
Zoya said six students had contracted TB,
some kidney diseases and scabies, and a dozen had to undergo appendicitis
operation last year.
Six nurses who came to see Zoya said their hostel was the dirtiest place where no
regular cleanliness was carried out. They alleged that high-ups hardly paid any
visit to the hostel.
They said the administration provided them Rs6,500
scholarship per month, but the nursing school principal charged Rs1,650 per
month from them as mess expenses.
They further alleged that the
administration deducted Rs240 per day from their scholarship amount in case of
one day leave, even on account of illness.
"Officials threaten them that
practical numbers will not be given to them if they lodge any complaint against
them. They also take expenditures from them during their training visit to
hospitals in Lahore or other cities", they alleged. They said the DHQ Hospital
had only one nursing patient room which remained jam-packed with students.
Medical Superintendent Malik Ashiq Husain said that TB was a common
disease because most of students belonged to the poor strata of society.
He said that nursing school principal Mussarat came to the hostel from
Multan only once a week and that she had handed over the charge to
vice-principal Tahira for the rest of the days.
Mr Hussain said that he
had checked the food of the hostel mess last month and found it below

detention of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in response to the allegations leveled against
him by General Ziaul Haq.
