I would like to inform the concerned authorities through your esteemed online newspaper about the impolite behavior of an assistant dentist with my patient in the Government Hospital in Booni.
On October 7, 2013 I took my patient to the said hospital for treatment of tooth. I went through the whole process like taking entry receipt and entering after waiting for a long time as there were many patients. When my patient was checked up by the doctor, he directed his assistant to administer an injection to the patient’s aching tooth so that it could easily be removed. When the patient tried to show the assistant the tooth the rude assistant said, “I would slap you.”
We refused to avail of the humiliating treatment which was against human dignity. So we were compelled to move to Aga Khan Maternity Home in Booni where they treated the patient.
I would like to request the concerned authorities and the poor management of Government Hospital Booni to improve its staff’s behaviour that how to deal with the patients. It seems Booni Government Hospital’s staff members are notorious for their rude and inhuman behaviour and are not ready to change themselves. The authorities should take notice of the matter so that patients coming to the health-care facility are treated like human beings.
