Upazila health complex physician advises patient to go to his pvt chamber
A woman has brought allegation against an upazila health complex physician of advising her to go to his private chamber, despite it is not allowed.
The doctor is dental surgeon at Nabinagar Upazila Health Complex, Brahmanbaria Abdullah Al-Bari.
Patient Khaleda Begum said, “I have been suffering from teeth pain for two days. That is why I went to the room of Dr Abdullah at the health Complex. He watched my teeth. Later, he suggested me to meet him at his private chamber at Grameen General Hospital in the afternoon for better treatment.”
She alleged that Dr Abdullah told her, "This is government hospital. There is no enough machines for treatment. So, come to my private chamber in the afternoon. Diagnose well."
Regarding this, Dr Abdullah said, "I saw a stick inside the teeth of the patient. The hospital has no machine to pull out the stick. For this reason, I told her to go to my private chamber."
About this, Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Saimul Huda said it is not permitted for a doctor to prescribe patient to go his/her private chamber during duty at government hospital.
If the victim files a written compliant, necessary step will be taken against the physician., Saimul Huda added.
Brahmanbaria civil surgeon Dr Shah Alam said the official concerned was instructed to take necessary initiatives after looking into the matter.
