Collector finds 15 doctors in Kadapa reporting late

KADAPA: Fifteen doctors did not report on time when District Collector M.T. Krishna Babu inspected Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) on Saturday.

The Collector inspected the attendance register and found that 15 doctors had not turned up for duty at the scheduled time. Erring doctors would be issued charge-memos on one or two occasions and subsequently he would address the authorities concerned to initiate stern action against them, he warned. He exhorted doctors to discharge duties diligently and serve poor patients with commitment.

More surgeries

Advising doctors not to refer patients to other hospitals needlessly, he asked them to strive to perform more surgeries. He assured steps to ensure that there was no scarcity of doctors in RIMS by taking up the issue with the Government. He inspected the out-patient, surgical, orthopaedic, ENT and gynaecology wards.

RIMS OSD Saraswathamma, superintendent O. Bhanumathi Devi and RMO M. Sureswar Reddy and doctors participated.
