Elevator of CHK lying out of order

MN Report

KARACHI- An elevator of a five-storey building of Civil Hospital Karachi (CHK) has not been functioning due to some technical fault.

An official of the CHK’s administration department said that patients have been facing immense difficulties as the elevator of the hospital’s building had been lying out of order for the last couple of days.

“The worst sufferers are those patients requiring shifting from one department to another or to the emergency department and they include patients of Kidney, Surgical Ward 3, 4, 5, Plastic Surgery, Gynecology (Ward 1 to 3) and Intestine Ward,” he said, adding these patients due to malfunctioning of the elevator have no choice but to go through stairs from one floor to another.

Several attempts were made to contact the medical superintendent of the hospital to seek his version, but he did not respond to the phone calls.
