A portion of the ceiling at the dental OPD of the hospital had fallen. Luckily no one was injured in the accident.
The administration of the Government Doon Medical College (GDMC) has served a notice on Uttar Pradesh Rajkeeya Nirman Nigam Limited (UPRNL) for the freak incident on Monday when a portion of the false ceiling of the newly constructed OPD building caved in. The incident occurred on Monday afternoon when a portion of the ceiling at the dental OPD of the hospital fell. Luckily no one was injured in the accident but it created a situation of panic among the staff and the patients. Interestingly Monday’s incident is not an isolated one. In the recent past a portion of awning of the new OPD building had caved in.
When contacted, the Principal of Government Doon Medical College (GDMC), Dr Ashutosh Sayana told The Pioneer that a notice has been served to the work execution agency UPRNL for Monday’s incident. He said that the agency has been asked to submit an explanation of the shoddy work.
The new OPD building of the hospital was inaugurated on March 5 this year by the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat.
The work on the new OPD building of the GDMC hospital near Tehsil Chowk started in the year 2015. However delay in budget and subsequent issues with the work executing agency UPRNL resulted in long delay in completion of the work.
MRI machine becomes operational again
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine of the Government Doon Medical College hospital which had developed a snag on August 3 has been repaired. The important radio diagnostic machine became operational on Monday. This machine was forced to bear additional load ever since the CT scan machine of the department of Radio diagnosis of GDMC hospital went out of order. The malfunctioning of the important machine had made things difficult for the patients already suffering due to absence of CT scan facility.
The associated hospital of the GDMC is only facility in Dehradun and nearby districts where facility of MRI is available in a government centre. More than 30 MRIs are done by the machine in a day.
Interestingly this important machine has a habit of getting broken down regularly. It has developed snags many times in past. The doctors of the hospital admit that the machine has now become obsolete and should be replaced.
