They met district collector and dean of Ratlam Medical College on Tuesday in this connection. Alot MLA Manoj Chawla and Sailana MLA Harsh Vijay Gehlot placed the problems before college dean Dr Shashi Gandhi and District Collector Gopal Chand Dad.
Chawla said doctors, nurses, staff, ward boys and technicians of health department have been serving people during corona pandemic for past one year without leave. “But it is sad that employees are facing difficulties in taking care of the patients because of staff shortage.
