“We had received three orders on Thursday regarding maintaining cleanliness in the surroundings, ensuring punctuality and about decent dressing. We are implementing them all,” officiating chief medical superintendent (CMS) Vandana Sharma told TOI.
The government hospitals in Noida, the district hospital and the Super Speciality Paediatric Hospital & Post Graduate Teaching Institute in Sector 30 have received the order which is meant for the entire health department.
Following the order, the CMS has issued a directive to all the officials/employees of the hospital to come only in decent attire. “In compliance with the directions received from the headquarters, health department, all officials/employees are directed to wear only decent attire on every working day (pants-shirt for gents and suits for ladies),” reads the notice.
It is completely prohibited for any official/employee to come to the hospital wearing jeans and T-shirts, it says, adding that any violation of the said order will be followed by stringent action.
The effect of the order which was issued on Thursday was visible on Friday with many women staff turning up in traditional wear like salwar-kameez.
However, few men could be seen in jeans and some could be overheard joking about the order.
According to sources, the order is intended for officials/employees of the hospitals, community centres and primary health centres (PHCs) of the districts.
“We will implement it in the CHCs and PHCs as soon as we get. However, doctors have been already advised to wear serious clothing and nurses have their dress too,” he said.http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/noida/no-jeans-t-shirts-hospital-staff-told/articleshow/57819712.cms
