Disengagement of Staff Nurses, Paramedicos during Corona Pandemic Irresponsible: JKNPP
4/9/2020 11:49:51 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 9: Strongly condemning the ouster of around 181 trained professionals of Health and Medical Education Department of J&K during corona pandemic, Harsh Dev Singh today described the government’s move as highly dictatorial and irresponsible. “How could you disengage the front line warriors fighting against the deadly virus at a time when they were most needed? And that too on a pick and choose basis. The said health professionals including Staff nurses and paramedicos had been selected under SRO 24 by following a proper procedure on the analogy of similarly circumstanced health workers engaged under SRO 384. And while the latter and been allowed to continue for the last around ten years or so, the appointees under SRO 24 are being terminated in an arbitrary and despotic manner after one year of service and even prior to completion of one year. Not only that the H&ME Department had disengaged only the Health professionals of Jammu region to the exclusion of similar health workers engaged under SRO 24 in Kashmir region. Why different yardsticks for the two regions of J&K? Is the H&ME Department answerable to none?” questioned Singh.
In separate petitions sent to the President of India, Prime Minister, Union Health Minister and Lt Governor J&K today, Mr Singh called for withdrawal of termination orders of all such staff nurses and other health employees so as to cope with the crumbling health care in the UT due to the highly deficient staff. He said that as per the norms laid down by the Indian Nursing Council, there should be one staff nurse for every 4 beds in special wards, whereas in normal wards it should be one nurse for every six beds. The patient: nurse ratio in J&K at present being 30:1, it was practically impossible for the nursing staff to cater to the medical requirements of patients and especially in the present scenario wherein the corona was spreading with its lethal ferocity. He cautioned to hold dharna outside the top officers of H&ME Deptt in case the draconian termination orders of Health staff were not immediately revoked.
