The staffers of District Hospital were taken by shock after Mandla Collector Sufiya Farookhi Wali carried out surprise inspection of the hospital. The District Collector expressed anger on the inadequate cleanliness and scolded the cleanliness staff for having failed to maintain the required level of hygiene at the district hospital. She sought explanation from doctors who were found absent from duty. A show cause notice has been served to absentee doctors posted in the gynecology ward of the District Hospital. The Collector also took note of non display of consultation time of doctors before their respective chambers.

According to information, the surprise inspection of District Hospital carried out by Collector Sufiya Farookhi exposed the lack of cleanliness in the hospital. The Collector, who found the hospital campus and patient ward unclean, expressed anger and instructed hospital administration to take action against sanitation employees for failure to keep hospital clean. Taking serious note in lapse in cleanliness, she instructed the hospital management to make dress code mandatory for all employees. She instructed the hospital management to ensure division of work among workers as per shift and cleanliness must be carried out during night as this would not bother patients who visit the hospital during day time.

The Collector instructed the doctor to put on display their time of consultation as none of the patient should get ever troubled for want of time of consultation with the doctor concerned in the district hospital. Allegedly complaint was made on non availability of doctors during their scheduled working hours. This created trouble for people from far off places who covered long distance but were unable to consult the doctor in absence of schedule. Also no lady doctor was found on duty in gynecology ward of the district hospital when Collector visited the ward.

She also inspected the facilities being given by the hospital management to patients and instructed the hospital administration to ensure that peoper facilities are given to patients. She was angry when she saw women patients were waiting for the arrival of lady doctor in gynecology ward of the district hospital. She instructed doctors present to seek explanation from the absent doctor. In course of inspection she visited the patient ward and sought feedback from patients. One patient, Gangadeen told the District Collector about inadequate treatment. Taking note of the complaint she instructed the hospital management to provide befitting treatment to the ailing man. The matron nurse of the district hospital was issued last warning to ensure that the hospital was uncluttered and met set parameters of hygiene.
