FAAMC lacks in management

An appalling situation came to light following patient Gajendra Das's emergency admission into the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the much spoken about Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed Medical College (FAAMC) in Barpeta town Friday evening.

The appointed ward boy and the sweeper for the FAAMC ICU were surprisingly missing. Das and his attendants had to bear the brunt of the condition inasmuch that his attendants had to do the necessary which otherwise is the duty of the concerned employees of FAAMC.

Though the superintendent of FAAMC was informed about the matter, no effective steps were taken.

The Intensive Care Unit is an important department of a hospital where patients requiring critical care are kept under keen observation and treatment. The unlikely happened in the case of Das. FAAMC administrators failed to manage their employees and own responsibilty for the same.

Das had to be shifted to a private hospital in Guwahati city to continue with his treatment. His attendants expressed indignation and said that Himanta Biswa Sarma the Minister of Education and Health, Government of Assam needs to know of the improper functioning of FAAMC and the plight of patients requiring immediate attention and care.

Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed Medical College and Hospital is the newest addition to the emerging medical education scenario in Assam. It is the fifth medical college in Assam built with the aim to specially cater to the needs of people of West Assam.
