One of our editorial team member Ms. Dipa Das and her husband has a tough time with ambulance service given by ‘Matri Sadan’ Hospital run by South Dum Dum Municipality.

On 13th June 2016 brother of Ms.Dipa Das complained of breathlessness and doctors told the family to rush to the hospital.

They booked a ambulance with next door municipal hospital named “Matri Sadan” at Rabindranagar area but utterly surprised that Ambulance did not had the facility to run oxygen the bare minimum service required in an ambulance.

On top of it near Ultadanga the ambulance had an accident and the driver asked for money without caring for the patient to reach hospital.

Her husband Mr.Das a NRI was surprised to see such a unprofessional act by government healthcare service providers. where as he had a high regards for modified and improved infrastructure of Hospital in last five years.

Despite of many great work by the South Dum Dum Municipality in recent past one such inhuman gesture sharply creates negative impact on public mind.

We are drawing kind attention of the Chairman and management of SDDM to have a through investigation and do the corrective measure for such serious issues.
