TIRUPATI: The vacant teaching and nursing positions in the Sri Venkateswara Medical College and the attached S.V. Ramnarain Ruia Government General Hospital, besides the Government Maternity Hospital, turned out to be the crux of discussion during the visit of P.V. Ramesh, principal secretary (health), to the hospital complex here on Wednesday.
After going around the hospital complex, Dr. Ramesh enquired about the positions remaining vacant for long. He felt that the information forwarded by the SVMC principal S. Balarama Raju and the Ruia Superintendent G. Sadasivaiah to this effect was grossly insufficient. He expressed concern over the ratio of staff nurses to newborn babies per shift in the paediatric ward at an abysmal 1:52 and promised to initiate action on appointment of nurses. He also agreed to consider the requests to launch an anaesthesia unit and eight gynaecology units in Ruia and a paediatric unit in the Maternity Hospital.
