We have three obstetrician-gynecologists, however we need to recruit specialists here. There are 48 GNMs out of which four are trained in Assam Medical College. One anesthesiologist is being recruited soon. Doctors are in short supply and vacancies need to be filled soon. In general surgery also, we discussed the equipment of the hospital.

She was shaking a lot and we had never seen her shake like this before. The nurse was unable to insert the drip needle. Two drops were removed by draining the oxygen mask. The mask wasn’t quite there either, I can’t tell why. The nurse did not understand Assamese, so we could not communicate. She wrote a medicine bell that we found,” said a cousin of Baruch.
“A female doctor was there and left in the middle. Another female doctor joined us. A CT scan was to be performed. I checked myself and felt that my sister was not breathing. We screamed for the nurse, the doctor or some help that could make my little sister go again. It was too late. I can’t say who is at fault, but there were certainly serious and serious deficiencies in the hospital.”
