The worst and unhygienic condition of government hospitals

What immediately springs to mind when we hear the word “hospital” Right, a place of hope where lives are saved and health is restored. Yet, that is not reality any longer, particularly in government emergency clinics. Because of the outdated and unfortunate acts of government medical clinics, individuals lose their lives, in any event, when gigantic potential outcomes of them were being saved. The provision of health facilities in a clean and disinfected setting is the primary objective of hospitals. It has been observed that most ward boys show negligence in their duties and avoid changing bed sheets on a daily basis, which causes harmful effects on patients surrounding them,rather than relieving patients from diseases, many government hospitals add more suffering to the patients, resulting in an unbearable smell that is typically found in rooms and wards. It also has been found to be stained with various liquids, including tincture and pyodine, as well as blood. The washrooms condition in the hospital is horrible which makes the environment grimy even the situation is so painfully worst in the government hospitals that the attendant or family of the patient feels bad and uncomfortable to stay there and how to motivate their patient and gives him energetic vibes to get well soon.Beside these all of these flaws and negative aspects of government hospitals there also great facilities of the free medication to the patients that are mostly poor and from lower class and cannot afford their expenses of private checkup and forgetting medication.

According to my explore and research, once I had an experience of living hospital in Lahore as an attendant with my father for six to seven months because was on the dialysis that time. The worst and hygienic situation which I saw was just unexplainable and bad. There were no facility of sanitizer or soap for washing hands. And the condition of washrooms was so unbearable and the staff is washing even their dishes and cups in the toilets and there was a leakage of water through pipes too, but the thing which is hurtful is that the washrooms of doctors are separatev and full cleaned and hygienic. Like is this humanity that patients and doctors are not treating at the same stage. This situation causes harmful and deva stable effects on the health of patients. And the behaviour of staff is so rude and aggressive towards attendant and patients with no human feelings and sympathy. These all are the negative and unbearable aspects of government hospitals in Pakistan. I was eyewitnesses of the bad situation in one hospital where in one bed three to four patients lie down and are being treated brutally. And no one is paying attention towards this condition and same condition with the blankets that are unwashed and dirty from the months and are given to patients.However, when compared to the current state of affairs, these hospitals appear to have evolved into breeding grounds for viruses and bacteria, a major source of epidemics, among other things the individuals who can’t manage the cost of the soaring charges of private emergency clinics visit public clinics for their diseases. Cats live in the wards, sputum covers the floors and corners of the rooms, and the operation rooms are in disrepair and lack proper equipment. It shocks me how activities are acted in such circumstances. Confidential medical clinics are very costly and past the scope of the typical individual and are just reasonable by the high society. Government hospitals in Pakistan, on the other hand, have terrible conditions. Hospital run by the government, with clean water. A large portion of the patients in government medical clinics are remaining in unhygienic condition and can’t recuperate as expected. Pakistan’s healthcare system is deteriorating day by day due to rising costs and a lack of resources.

Despite numerous improvements over the past few decades, Pakistan still has a high infant and female mortality rate. There are a number of problems, such as bad governance, a poor-quality Health Information Management System, corruption in the health system, a lack of monitoring in health policy and health planning, a lack of educated professionals, and a lack of access to and equitable distribution of resources. One of the factors contributing to Pakistan’s failing healthcare system is a lack of healthcare infrastructure. There could be no appropriate strategy making and arranging in this office. As a result, citizens have access to inadequate healthcare facilities. A typical government hospital does not have enough staff, nurses, and doctors. Since they serve a major populace in the encompassing region, such emergency clinics are regularly packed. There aren’t enough beds there. The worst conditions of broke n and fully damaged washroom tools the seeped and dribbling leaking water supplying pipes r more contaminating the general atmosphere which must be very neat and clean resultantly the all most indoor climate is full of diseases causing pathogens like dangerous Bacteria Viruses An Fungi therefore no curative system is there rather abolished absolutely Hospitals r the ray of hope Hospitals are filthy and unsanitary, they lack security, they do not provide any kind of patient care, they frequently run out of medicines and other consumables, employees may be dishonest and ask for bribes from patients, and they may even not have essential utilities like water, power, or fuel. Their ambulances may not be available due to breakdowns or corruption, leaving patients to fend for themselves. Political and more significant position debasement is one reason of chronic weakness area in Pakistan. The assets are inaccessible in the clinics and other medical services lopes because of debasement .

In Pakistan, ill-advised sterilization and food stockpiling are two of the most serious disinfection challenges. Salmonella, E. coli, and other pathogens can enter the human body through food contamination from filthy water, resulting in serious illness. As a result, individuals may experience additional issues like bacterial infections and diarrhea as a result of inadequate facilities. Wards and emergency rooms suffer from poor sanitation and hygiene as a result of poor management. Patients, doctors, and support staff all suffer as a result of the spread of diseases in the hospital caused by improper waste disposal.

The poor management of the funds is the underlying cause of all the issues. If the ill-advised assets’ administration, portion, and debasement are controlled, circumstance will fundamentally get to the next level. NGOs with only one coordinated center that is to advance circumstances at government clinics ought to be laid out to add further viability in improving quality wellbeing rehearses across Pakistan’s medical clinics.
