Evening shift at PIMS OPD demanded

Islamabad—Residents of the federal capital have demanded the authorities concerned to immediately start a full-fledged evening shift at the Out Patient Department (OPD) of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (OPD), keeping in view the patients’ burden in the morning.
Due to heavy load at the OPD in daytime and limited hospital timings, several patients, who come from far-flung areas of the country, face several problems and fail to get consultation from the doctors.
The people also complained of inadequate staff at the PIMS emergency and OPD and appealed to deploy sufficient medical and para medical staff for delivery of better services to the patients.
They said unlike medical practices in abroad where one doctor examines five to seven patients in a day, here at the PIMS each doctor has to examine around 100 patients daily at the OPD.—APP
