THQ hospital’s burning of waste a nuisance for Drosh residents

DROSH: The administration of the Tehsil Headquarters (THQ) Hospital Drosh trampled the environment rules and safety standards by openly burning huge quantity of waste and garbage on the premises of the hospital that not only caused suffocation to the patients but also created a nuisance in residential areas near the building.

Though there are standing orders and standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the health department to dispose of hospital waste but the management of the THQ hospital ignored it creating health hazards for the populace. Even players of different games and the spectators at the Col Murad Stadium could not remain unaffected by the dense smoke that engulfed the area. The local people have called upon the deputy commissioner and authorities of the health department to take notice of the matter and punish the hospital officials concerned so that such unhealthy practices could be stopped in future.
