There is a huge resentment growing against the services at the Tripura Sundari Hospital which is the Sub-divisional hospital of Udaipur.

As per sources, the medical staff of the hospital including Sub-Divisional Medical Officer (SDMO) reportedly left the hospital during duty hours on Sunday and for picnic without arranging for an alternative medical service in their absence.

It was also alleged that most doctors and medical staff of the hospital went for a picnic outside Udaipur. Meanwhile most of the patients admitted at the hospital remained unattended due to lack of staff.

The issue came to light only after a patient was taken to the hospital and found that there were no medical staff to attend to them. The medical administration of Udaipur has been apprised of the matter.
