Video by ARY News Shows the Horrible Condition of Nishtar Hospital (Multan, Pakistan)
Nishtar Hospital Visit by Mubashar Luqman
You can watch the video below or on YouTube.
Mubashir luqman showed video clips of Nishtar hospital and that was really depressing for me.
I graduated from Nishtar in 1970 and I know that Nishtar hospital wards were so clean that was unbelievable.
Question why so much deterioration that is obvious . This hospital was made just for 800 to 900 patients and Multan population was less than a million and now it is more than 3 millions.
Nishtar hospital drains patients from Baluchistan, Dera ghazi khan, up to Rahimyar khan and on other side upto Sahiwal and Pakpattan . I want to tell you the importance of this hospital that this hospital drain vast area of patients , and this is the same hospital with limited number of patients.
As south Punjab particularly Saraiki belt is always neglected . Since Nishtar was build , after then so Many new medical colleges and hospital are built in Lahore.
Now Nishtar hospital is giving facility to Multan , 3 million population and large area of patients from surroundings. Now some time the admission of patients 2 to 4 times of its capacity.
Because of patients overload and lack of funds , now this is worse than hospital run by a quake.
Multan needs at least two more hospital like Nishtar and equal distribution of funds like lahore .
Once I was president of PMA and I asked secretary health that has ever visited Nishtar and reply was Big No . Then in my tenure of four years we requested so many time but he never visited .
Multan producing maximum revenue than upper Punjab . But it always deprived of his share.
Mubashir luqman showed the new block of ICU without any equipment. This project was funded by our nishtarian doctors living in USA. This project was requested by the principle and NANA gave almost $125,000. And it was supposed to be equipped by the government of Punjab. Now after seeing bad result of ICU now NANA decided that don’t give funds to Nishtar for buildings.
Now Shahbaz sharif gave laptops Instead of that , that money he should have given for ICU .
All those laptops were sold in the market.
Then once there was project of pediatric hospital which was shifted to lahore . Multan was given fund after many years of that lahore project.
I will request to Chief minister please give due share to Multan.
This horrible condition of Nishtar hospital is due to lack of funds over years.
The animal clinics/ hospitals are better than Nishtar hospital, in USA or other developed countries.
I once again appreciate Mubashar Luqman video of Nishtar hospital Multan .
If chief minister Shahbaz sharif sb and prime minister. Nawaz sharif sb come out of Lahore and give due share to Multan which gives maximum revenue to Punjab government.
I will really appreciate if the government change their policies for south punjab.
