SKIMS provides Non Veg Diet  in Srinagar Hospitals @ Rs.91, Dal Sabzi in Jammu Hospital @ Rs.134

Jammu:  Balvinder Singh RTI while addressing the Press Conference made some very shocking  revelations, based on the information received under RTI,  with regard to the Diet being given to the patients in various Govt Hospitals in Jammu Division.

Singh said that as per the information recived under RTI  from SKIMS hospital is giving  one Cup tea 2 bread Slice and one boiled Egg in the breakfast,  Rice + Chicken+ Veg+saag five days a week in the Lunch, One Cup tea & two Brtead Slice in the evening tea and Rice, Chicken with curry +Veg (carrot+Capasicum + French beans) five days a week in the  dinner and are charging in an average RS.91. Per day per patient.

The Information received from Government Medical  College Jammu shows that they are giving Dal Sabzi to the indoor patients @Rs.134, without evening tea,  which is  more than 45% higher than the rates of Non-veg diet being given by Sher I Kashmir Institute of Medical Science & 50% higher than the Veg Diet being given by Psychiatric Disease Hospital Srinagar who is giving Veg Diet to the Indoor Patients @Rs 93.50.  Various hospitals in Jammu like GMC, SMGS & Psychiatric they are giving 4 slice of bread with Vegitable  in the breakfast and served it to the patients at 5.30 AM, 5 Chapatis, One Rice Plate, Dal & Vegitable in the Lunch and Mix Dal, Paneer Curry, Rice & 4 Chapatis twice a week  in the dinner and Nutri curry once a week in the dinner. No evening tea is given to the indoor patients in the Jammu Govt Hospitals. Patients in the hospitals needs high caleroried energy suppliments and nutitients so that they could recover from the illness at the earliest, but indoor patients in Jammu Hospitals are being given sub statndard diet without adhering to the terms and conditions laid down in the Tender Documents , which specify the quantity of uncooked rice 60gms, Vegitable Uncooked 75 gms, Dal uncooked 50 gms and Paneer uncooked 50 gms. Singh Strongly criticised the Hospital Management especially the MS of each hospital for not proper monitoring or surprise checking of the diet.

It is clearly mentioned in the Contract that the contractor will distribute “DIET” to the in-patients from “BED TO BED” basis but the same is not being done the distribution was made in the Verandah with the result the patients who don’t have any attendent with him some times couldnt get diet because of inabitly to move due to his sickness.

 Un-hygienic food : It is also mentioned in the contract that the staff engaged for distribution of Diet should wear proper dress along with polythene gloves while distributing Diet to the patients for maintaining proper hygiene, but the same condition has also not been implemented because of the reason known to the MS of all the hospitals.

 Same food including  daal, vegitables are being served to every indoor patient maybe he/her is diabetic, having kidney problem, hypertensive patient and patients or  who has undergone intestinal surgery  irrespective of his/her need.

Though there is the mention of giving,  Egg Hen Boiled with ½ ltr and 1 ltr milk of Amul, Verka/Surya or any brand of repute , at serial No. 13 & 14 of annexure “D” attached with the tender Document but the same is not providing to the patients for the last somany years.

Singh urged upon Hon’ble Governor of our State Jb Satya Pal Malik to initiate  time bound enquiry to look into how the supply of DIET is given at so high rates as compared to the Non-Veg Diet being given to the Indoor Patients at SKIMS and also urges to take stern action against the MS and Management of all the Hospitals for not providing Egg and Milk to the patiens even after charging 45% more than the diet being Charghed in Srinagar Hospital. SAC should also enquire how the same contractor is supplying the Diet to the Hospital for the last somany years.  Mr Singh also urged upon the Governor sahib that it would be better to directly transfer the amount of Rs.134, one day diet rate, in the account of every patien so that ppatient get the diet of his choice from the market and  per his/her requirement keeping in view of his sickness and it will also stop the leakage. Singh also urghed the Commissioner Secretary H&ME  to direct the Hospital Administratiion to install CCTV Cameras where the diet is distributed  and get the sign of every patient who takes diet daily so that Administration can check daily what they are giving to the patients  and how many patients diet ios charged by the contracvtor from the Hospital.

Balvinder  also urged upon the Hospital Management to display the Weekly Diet Chart in every Ward along with the quantity so that patients should know what they are entitled and what they are getting.
