Clockwise: Five children share one bed in a ward; patients and their family members wait for their turn at a clinic, and a glimpse of the overcrowded OPD of the National Institute of Child Health.—Fahim Siddiqi / White Star

KARACHI: An overwhelming number of patients reporting at the emergency and outpatient departments (OPDs) along with overcrowding in wards has become a major problem at the National Institute of Child Health (NICH) in recent years, seriously hampering quality of paediatric care, it emerged on Wednesday.

A recent visit to the Sindh’s largest public sector tertiary care health facility for children revealed that the risk for hospital-acquired infections at the facility has increased manifold.

Patients’ flow at the hospital’s outpatient and emergency departments as well as other wards remained high throughout the year and the staff facing pressures from different political and government quarters was forced to treat two to three or even four to five children on a single bed.

Resultantly, sources said, the 600-bedded facility routinely admitted 1,200 patients. The mortality rate for newborns was as high as 10 to 15 per cent and five to eight per cent among children above one year, they said.

Yeh jo head neutral hai, Colnol in chief of Sepoy forces, Mir Bajwa who had issues with Buzdar, does he not consider Sindh to be part of Pakisan? Or contrary to Army brats' constantly indignant protestations, is Zardari/PPP truly Mil-establishment's A team?
