BERHAMPUR: AT a time when patients are forced to sleep on the floor of the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in MKCG MCH due to lack of space, a new building of the department was allegedly used to host a birthday party by a senior staff of the MCH recently. Sources said the event was attended by dean and superintendent of the MCH besides, other doctors.Administration of the MCH has come under severe criticism from local socio-cultural organisations over the issue.

SardarVallabhbhai Patel Multi-purpose Union, a social organisation in the city which has been protesting lack of proper treatment in the MCH, has lodged a complaint with the Baidyanathpur police in this regard. President of the organisation Ram Kumar Patra said use of a government hospital building like MKCG for personal events by doctors without permission is illegal and action should be taken against them.
Apparently, although the new building of Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology was completed two months back, it has not been opened for public use so far. The department continues to function from the  old unsafe indoor building.

Meanwhile, MKCG Superintendent Prof Khetrabasi Behera on Friday formed a committee to inquire into the delivery case. On Thursday, a pregnant woman Pramodini delivered her baby outside the Indoor building after she was denied admission in the gynaecology ward by doctors.The committee led by HoD of Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology Sanghamitra Mohapatra has started investigation into the issue.
