Show-cause notices served on 39 DHQ Hospital absent staff
LAKKI MARWAT: The medical superintendent District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital on Tuesday served show-cause notices to 39 employees over their long absenteeism, official sources said.
They stated that taking serious note of the long absenteeism of the hospital employees, Medical Superintendent DHQ Hospital, Dr Haleem ur Rehman Khattak, issued show-cause notices to them, adding that the employees posted in various sections at the hospital were found absent from duties while drawing salaries at homes since long.
“It's ridiculous that the medical superintendents in the past did not bother to take action against them. This medical superintendent has finally warned the absent staff through the show-cause directing them to explain their position within three days and resume their duties or else disciplinary action would be initiated against them,” an official said, adding that half of the employees absent from duties were female.
