‘Nurses deputed at Maha CM`s bungalow as per law’
Mumbai: The decision to depute nurses on
temporary basis at Varsha, the official bungalow of Chief
Minister Prithviraj Chavan, to look after his mother-in-law
was in keeping with the law, Dean of state-run JJ Hospital T
P Lahane claimed on Sunday.
The move had attracted criticism from the Maharashtra
Government Nurses Federation, which sent a protest letter to
the Superintendent of Albess and Cama hospital from where
three nurses were deputed to work at the Chief Minister`s
Lahane said the request from "Varsha" came because the
private nurse looking after the Chief Minister`s relative was
"Varsha is a state government accommodation and
government employees can be deputed there. There is nothing
wrong in deputing nurses to look after a patient at Varsha,"
he said, adding nurses were deputed on a temporary basis to
check the patient`s blood pressure and take her to Bombay
Hospital for physiotherapy.
"The private nurse is scheduled to return tomorrow and
the nurses on deputation will be back at Cama Hospital. Cama
is a 500-bed hospital and there are only 250 patients. Hence,
the three nurses from the hospital were sent on deputation,"
