NHRC Takes Notice of Poor Conditions at Jind Civil Hospital

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) of India has taken suo motu cognizance of a media report, dated July 5, 2024, highlighting the deplorable state of infrastructure at the Civil Hospital in Jind, Haryana.

The report revealed that out of 55 sanctioned posts for doctors, only 19 are currently filled. Despite receiving around 2,000 patients daily, the hospital reportedly lacks proper medical equipment and medicines, forcing most patients to be referred to other facilities. Adding to the hospital's woes is a monkey menace that has further complicated the situation.

The NHRC observed that if the news report's contents are accurate, they raise a significant issue regarding the violation of patients' right to health and medical care, which are fundamental human rights. Consequently, the Commission has issued a notice to the Chief Secretary of the Government of Haryana, requesting a detailed report within one week.

The report should outline the steps taken or proposed to improve the overall condition of Jind Civil Hospital. The goal is to ensure that patients receive necessary medical care without difficulty and are not forced to seek treatment elsewhere due to the lack of doctors and essential life-saving facilities.
