a 46-year-old woman mixes cement and sand The site is littered with fragments of stone brick and construction dust This is also the spot where 14 men are lying on beds having undergone surgery recently Some have deep wounds and in the absence of a respirator are at greater risk of disease and infection This is the male surgical ward number 5 at Delhi’s Hindu Rao Hospital — the largest hospital run by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation The situation is equally bad if not worse in the female surgical ward where broken windows mean free access to mosquitoes and outside air An 18-year-old woman who has just undergone abdominal surgery lies in the middle of the cement and tiles “They told me they provide free treatment but now they have asked Rs 3500 for a CT scan I had to borrow the money But look at this my daughter is lying inside and I have to wait outside because of the construction Is this how you treat poor patients” says the woman’s father For the last three years amid public outcry over the MCD’s lack of preparedness to tackle dengue and chikungunya the state of primary and secondary healthcare services provided by municipal corporations appears to have escaped scrutiny “Patient care has never been a priority Yes we are putting patients at a higher risk of infection when they are provided treatment in such conditions But for municipal corporations these are purely administrative decisions” says a senior doctor posted with the emergency services who did not wish to be named With more than 900 beds Hindu Rao Hospital sees over 5 lakh patients in its OPD and conducts more than 18000 operations every year In the last three years however it has faced an acute staff crunch “Not one resident doctor has been recruited on a permanent basis in three years Everyone here works ad-hoc This is one of the largest tertiary care set-ups in the capital but you’ll be shocked to know that most of the resident doctors work on a 72-day ad-hoc basis” says a senior doctor “The Medical Council of India had pointed out these lacunae but no lessons have been learnt and the entire system works mostly on contractual basis” he adds Officials say this translates into a shortage of 25-30 per cent for senior and junior residents and 15 per cent for senior consultant doctors The hospital’s surgical ward where construction is underway A walk through the emergency and casualty services shows how the shortage affects patient care Over 2 lakh casualty patients mostly from the low income group visit the hospital every year Its emergency services — meant to address accidents and trauma — make it one of the busiest in the capital But for over a decade the hospital has never had a neurosurgeon considered the backbone of emergency services “If a patient walks in with a head injury the doctor here can only perform a physical examination and CT scan to assess the nature and severity There is no neurological exam because the department does not have a neurosurgeon” says a doctor “Most road accident cases have head injuries and often there are complications We have to refer the cases to other hospitals even though the delay can cause irreparable damage” says the doctor Dr Ajit Kumar Goyal Medical Superintendent Hindu Rao Hospital said “We have repeatedly written to the MCD to appoint all contractual employees on permanent basis The proposal is lying pending before the administration But I have heard that it will be accepted soon ” Neglect by authorities is also evident in the dilapidated condition of the emergency operation theatre “Walls have not been painted window panes are broken and only fixed temporarily The condition of toilets for doctors inside the OT is pathetic Even the OT table needs repair Air conditioning was provided just a week ago — that too after doctors went on strike” a doctor says Here too patient care is compromised For example a basic drug required for general anaesthesia is not provided and patients are supposed to get it from outside “There’s a standby drug that’s used when the patient is intubated and put on general anaesthesia It costs just Rs 60 but we have to tell patients to get it from outside” says a doctor A 35-year-old man who has come to the hospital complaining of breathlessness says he has not been provided “any medicines” “I was referred from the emergency to OPD There they asked me to purchase medicines from outside I don’t have enough money; now they have told me to come next week” he says The doctor explains “Most of the time we provide medicines for free but sometimes there’s a shortage” The critical care unit is similarly ill-equipped Officials say the hospital is yet to get a Cath Lab — a room in the hospital with diagnostic imaging equipment to visualise arteries and chambers of the heart and treat abnormalities “It’s essential for various cardiac procedures” says a doctor The staff shortage is most visible in general wards “For 30 beds there is just one junior resident If there is an emergency at night he has to handle it by himself In some circumstances he has to prioritise who to treat first” says a doctor posted in the general ward Being an ad-hoc doctor also means they are not entitled to basic allowance and are even denied maternity leave “Senior residents have teaching responsibilities The hospital does not even provide book allowance for residents; we buy them ourselves to teach graduates How do you expect to produce quality doctors like this” says a doctor “A senior resident who worked for three years was denied maternity leave; the matter is pending before a tribunal The question is if you can’t look after doctors how will you look after patients” he adds As he walks off for a coffee break after a 12-hour shift he adds “My salary has been delayed by two months I have rent EMIs to pay and a family to look after Last year I had only Rs 500 left after salary was delayed by six months I don’t want see such

personal archives of Hugh Hefner for the series helped them understand the media personality’s life Top News Stephen David who has produced a new mini-series on Hugh Hefner’s life hopes to highlight the Playboy founder’s contribution to the American cultural landscape David says working on American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story available on Amazon Prime Video was a dream come true as it gave him a chance to explore the media mogul’s lesser known side “You really can’t overstate how much Hef did for bringing sexuality into the mainstream Before Playboy sex was something that you just didn’t talk about “America was a very repressive place after World War II and Hef was a huge part of breaking down those societal stigmas and barriers Without Hef and Playboy there wouldn’t have been a sexual revolution” David told PTI in an interview from New York The producer however believes that Hefner has been equally serious about a number of social issues concerning race gender and freedom of speech “Our hope is that the series will prompt people to really re-examine Hef’s life and grasp a better understanding of the many social causes he championed and often led the charge on But there’s no question that Playboy has made its mark on the cultural landscape” The producer says having access to Playboy’s resources and Hefner’s personal archives for the series helped them understand the media personality’s life “The game changer for us on this project was having the unprecedented access to Playboy’s resources and Hef’s personal archives Being able to tap into this never-seen-before material really elevated things for us” Stephen says despite Hefner’s involvement in the project the series will be an objective portrayal Also read: Playboy has not lost its relevance: Cooper Hefner “I think people will realise what we came to realise very early on in this project – Hef is very self-aware and he’s able to look back on his life with incredible recall and a certain amount of objectivity” he says He believes they got lucky with the casting of Matt Whelan as he bears a close resemblance to young Hefner “Hef was a big part of the casting decision When we found Matt Whelan everyone was just blown away – in addition to being a great actor Matt just looks so much like a young Hef “When Hef saw the casting tape he had the same reaction we had We all knew that Matt was our guy” he says For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top News PTI By: Express Web Desk | Bengaluru | Updated: January 2, Identifying the two accused as Lal Singh and
