Nashik: Employees working in the light of mobile phones due to the failure of district hospital lights.

On Saturday evening around 4:30 to 5:30, the power supply in the hospital was interrupted. There was no power supply as the generator was also faulty. Due to this, there was darkness everywhere in the hospital. Treatment systems were also shut down or running pending backup. Due to lack of electricity supply, treatment of critical patients had to be done. But doctors, nurses and staff avoided this crisis. Meanwhile, the doctors said that there was no danger to the babies undergoing treatment as the incubator in the SNCU room had an hourly backup. However, due to lack of electricity, there was a risk of spoilage of the blood stock in the blood bank. The problem was said to have arisen as the problem was not resolved despite repeated follow-ups for generator repairs.

The power supply has been smooth and there is no interruption in the treatment. The problem occurred due to a fault in the generator. It will be resolved soon. – Dr. Arun Pawar, District Surgeon in Charge, District Hospital.
