Perhaps, shedding a light on the overall condition of healthcare in UP,  a video recently went viral that showed an eighth pass conducting an operation on a patient in the private hospital that he owns in UP’s Shamli.

Nardev Singh, allegedly an eighth-pass and owner of the Aryan Hospital can be seen operating on a patient. A female compounder is first seen giving anaesthesia to the patient and then the owner of the hospital performs the operation. The video was made and forwarded to senior officials.

 

The Acting Chief Medical Office (ACMO) Ashok Kumar Handa told the media that the hospital was closed down previously for irregularities. “This is not the first time this hospital has been a figure of controversy. The hospital was sealed once before,” Handa said, reported The New Indian Express. He said that the hospital was closed thrice but due to having “political connections,” the hospital reopened.

The matter has reached CMO Shamli, who said, “Whatever is shown in the video is unlawful and if found true, then action will be taken against the culprits.” In the last one year, 20 patients have reportedly died in the hospital. Among those, five of the families had filed FIR against the doctor and the hospital under section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of the IPC.


The Logical Indian take

If UP was a country, it would be the fifth most populous country in the world with a population close to Brazil’s.

UP’s population growth per decade is more than the country’s average. A state which houses 16% of India’s population, gets only 9% of the country’s public health spending. Moreover, the meagre funds the State receives, are misallocated. There is a shortage of specialists, lab technicians, female doctors, nurses, beds, medical equipment, medicines, operation theatres, etc. However, the crippling state of its healthcare system is not just an infrastructural problem. There has been a consistent incompetence in governance.

The national debate is at an all-time low with people’s minds diverted to topics of lesser importance than discussing healthcare, unemployment, education and poverty.
