You are health inspector of the region and got the complaint related to it. This hospital is governed by family members of the district collector under which you work. Even public do not care much about this problem, as this is the sole hospital in that vicinity and they trust hospital as treatment and hospitality is good.

a.) Identify three crucial problems that are an obstacle to practical solutions. Also discuss why these are ‘crucial problem’.

  • Such problems arise because of ‘indifference’ of the hospital administration, failure of the relevant agencies to fulfill their duties such as cleaning and waste management department and law enforcement agencies and also whistleblowers and lastly lack of ‘awareness among the people about the ill effects of such a poor management of clinical wastes.
  • It needs to be rectified at all levels. It is crucial because it has ill effects on the health of residents in the surroundings and also because it indicates the failures of all agencies in administration.

(b) Find different steps for a solution to this problem and argue their capacity to achieve desired results.

  • As suggested above all the concerned agencies should be made socially and legally responsible and accountable for the failure of their duties.
  • In the course of action, there may be a need for hard actions but things should start from sensitization to all the agencies involved.

(c) Suggest the best course of action, that can help to address the problem in this case. Why?

  • The action should comprise a set of actions based on corporate ethics, citizenry awareness, compliance of law and active fulfillment of the duties by all the agencies including the media. No agency or public should be just being happy with paltry benefits that the hospital brings to them. Public health is a serious issue.
