| Thursday | 12th July, 2018
In wake of the drug scarcity, the GMCH had made a temporary arrangement and used Rs 20 lakh from its local funds to buy emergency drugs.
But the move has deepened the drug crisis at the GMCH.
However, the arrangement could not work for long for the hospital that receives a daily OPD patient count of 2,000 in addition to its indoor patients.
Aurangabad: The woes of patients at Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) don’t seem to end as they are still being forced to buy medicines from private stores.Following the release of funds for medicine procurement by the medical education and drugs department of the state it was expected that drugs would become available at the hospital.
Yelikar had also seconded the statement, but the drug shortage never ceased.Incidentally, the state government in its government resolution (GR) dated August 2017 made it obligatory for the public hospitals to procure all medicines and medical equipment from Haffkine Institute.The move was aimed at bringing transparency in drug procurement.
