OMI Hospital Plays with Cardiac Patients Health, Anonymous Patient Claims.
A hospital is a health care institution providing patient treatment with specialized staff and equipment. Today, hospitals are largely staffed by professional physicians, surgeons, and nurses, whereas in the past, this work was usually performed by the founding religious orders or by volunteers.
Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart as well as parts of the circulatory system. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrocardiography. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are called cardio thoracic surgeons or cardiac surgeons, a specialty of general surgery.
OMI Hospital is a private and oldest hospital in Karachi, Pakistan. “They are looting public’s money and playing with the patients health, they don’t have serious working staff. Their staff is irresponsible and nurses have a bad behavior with patients especially the patients who are not well enough and yell due to pain. Nurses were actually shouting back on the old ladies who were yelling due to severe pain and were saying.” The anonymous patient told Affairs Pakistan.
One of the nurses actually said to the old lady “Chup karjao warna haath pair rasi say bandh dungi” Is this really Private hospital? The anonymous patient said I had an angiography for 25k and angioplasty for 70K and 1night ICU all expenses included were 195,000 PKR. The surgeon of that patient was Dr. Tahir Saghir, in the next morning all payment was collected but the patient was not even checked or consulted once before leaving hospital.
On the other hand OMI Hospital claims: “OMI has acquired a reputation as a quality health care provider, and along with other specialties it has been serving as acknowledged center of excellence in cardiology. The Cardiac Unit provides current inpatient and outpatient cardiac clinical services utilizing a full range of technological capabilities so that highest possible standard of health care for heart ailments is available under one roof. Trained medical and nursing staff provides excellent timely care to heart related emergencies as well as elective procedures. The most experienced and skilled Consultant Cardiologists are available 24 hours to cover emergencies and also for consultation by appointment.”
Education and Health these two sectors are seriously important sectors and needs to be improved, being a journalist I wrote on this complaint and I want the concerned authorities to take some drastic measures against that.
