Subject: Betterment of hygiene in the local hospital

 Respected Sir

I am writing today as I want to draw your attention towards the devastating state of hygiene that the hospital in our locality is suffering from. I also wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities to this matter through the columns of your esteemed newspaper.

There has been a lack of maintenance on the premises and the floors are notably dusty. The medical equipment is stored in old uncovered boxes and is not being sterilised before use. Few cases were reported where the patients got evsickerick after returning from the hospital. I have tried to address the municipal corporation regarding this issue but no steps were taken. 

Hence, my request to you is to highlight this problem in your newspaper in order to get some steps taken either by the public or by the authorities of the hospital.

Thanking you

Yours sincerely

Subject: Shortage of staff in the local hospital

Respected Sir

By writing this letter, I want to draw the kind attention of the public and the concerned authorities towards the condition of staff scarcity that our local hospital is facing, through the columns of your esteemed daily.

Since the past few months, the situation of the hospital has degraded due to a lack of people attending their respective job roles in the place. I, myself, am a medical student and have a fair idea about the number of people required to run a hospital properly. Due to this scarcity, the public is facing procrastination in treatment or attendance of emergencies are getting delayed. Only two out of five reception windows are operational and there is absolutely no one present to attend to patients who need dressing on wounds or get their plasters changed. 

This is my humble request to you to publish and put a light on this matter. This way interested people may come forward to apply for the job or the authorities might take steps to reduce this scarcity of staff in the hospital.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully

Subject: Maintenance of hospital premises

Respected Sir

Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I want to draw the attention of the concerned authorities towards the bad condition of the premises of our local hospital.

My uncle, a school teacher by profession, was admitted to our locality hospital a month back. Whilst this was happening, the condition of the hospital that drew my attention is its under-maintained premises. A good ambience is always necessary for the improvement of patients’ health. The floor is broken and has become uneven at various areas where patients or any of the people hold a chance to stumble and hurt themselves. Also, the garden is filled with weeds and muddy ground which releases a foul smell from the area. Patients with beds beside the garden-facing window might fall ill. I also noticed the dustbins overflowing and the trash being found on the ground beside them. This may attract flies and other insects which in turn might make the food consumed by the patients stale. 

This is my request to publish this condition of our nearby hospital in your daily columns to attract the authority’s attention and for steps to be taken by the maintenance department of the hospital.

Thanking you

Yours obediently

Subject: Scarcity of beds the in hospital

Respected Sir

Today I am writing to you to raise the issue of scarcity of beds in our local hospital. I also want to draw public attention towards the fundraiser that can help in arranging beds, through the columns of your reputed newspaper.

My locality has a private hospital nearby. A few days back I heard complaints from various people about the scarcity of beds, which is quite inconvenient because it is the nearest hospital to our locality. Having adequate beds in the medical premises ly important so that people can have access to the medical facilities whenever needed or be able to rush to seek help in emergencies to that hospital as it is the nearest. Recently the hospital authority put up a fundraiser post to be able to be financially backed to increase their number of beds.

Therefore, it is my humble request to publish this and highlight the issue of scarcity of beds in the hospital and make people aware of the fundraiser which in turn will hopefully encourage them to donate for the improvement of the condition of the hospital.

Thanking you

Yours sincerely
