Uneducated and Unqualified Security Guards Entrusted with Tasks of Checking BP and Temperature

Port Blair, Aug 14: In what can be called as a mockery of health care in the A&N Islands, after the collapse of the lone referral hospital of A&N Islands, the A&N Administration has no other way but to utilize the services of uneducated and unqualified people to replace health workers.

A glaring example has come to light wherein private Security Guards provided by some contractor have been given the task to monitor and record the Blood Pressure and temperature of the patients. These security guards are either eighth standard pass or even below and have been hired to ensure the security of the hospital.

What else can be expected from the authorities who still prefer to tweet or announce in government run media to ‘Stop Spreading Rumours’ and project that things are under control?
