“We have asked one doctor from Sector 10 general hospital to come here and attend cases at the NICU ward.
We hope that the strike will soon be called off and patients will not face any inconvenience,” Jhakar said.Over 600 NHM workers have been on strike on the Civil Hospital premises since February 4.
Due to the lack of doctors and nurses at the ward we decided to take him to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital.
Two more doctors and four regular nurses have also been asked to look after cases in the ward for now.
