Power cuts in Health

It’s amazing that i never thought of how power cut can also affect clinics, hospitals and the whole health care. I don’t want to mention the place but when i was walking in to the clinic there were too many patients lying and sitting waiting for examinations. Some for ultrasound some for lab tests. The receptionist was really mad when the patients were asking again and again if it will come back or if they have a generator or something wondering if they will go one more step in identifying what’s going on in their body….being eager for treatment after diagnosis. Some were leaving losing their patience and some kept wating. I wonder how i would feel if i were in their place…..waiting for power while in pain. Just imagine….

The health system is already hard enough to support all the people in need of health services but i hope sometime soon the new hydro-power project that was launched will solve this problem very soon
