Manpower shortage hits medicare services

Medicare facilities are greatly hampered in Barishal as Barishal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital is facing acute shortage of doctors, nurses and other staff for quite a long time. According to hospital sources, SBMCH is a health care institution providing patient treatment with specialized medical and nursing staff and medical equipment which was upgraded to 1000-bed one from 500-bed about five years ago but it is still running with the previous staff strength.

The hospital started functioning in 1968 as a 325-bed hospital. Later, it was raised and upgraded to 500-bed one in 2000 and 1000-bed hospital in 2013. Posts of doctors, nurses, sweepers, technicians and security guards are lying vacant for long. According to SBMCH director office sources, at least 99 out of 224 posts including 18 registrars, 37 assistant registrars, three clinical pathologists, five emergency medical officers, one junior consultant for dental, four anesthetists, four indoor medical officers, 27 outdoor medical officers of radiology, radiotherapy, surgery, deontology, hematology departments, are vacant at the hospital since long days. Dr Baqir Hossain, director of SBMCH, acknowledging the facts said it has become difficult to ensure proper treatment at the hospital facing a shortage of duty doctors, nurses and fourth-class employees.

As a result, the hospital authorities are facing difficulties to run the hospital while the patients are deprived of proper treatment there as nearly four thousand patients struggle to get doctors’ attention every day, he said. “So to run the 1000-bed hospital we have to depend on 250 intern doctors to tackle the situation”, the SBMCH director said. “We informed the ministry and directorate about the shortage of manpower but have not gotten any result yet,” he added.
