Insight into Working Conditions at Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital, Puttaparthi

We received this report in October, 2019, from a source who for reasons of security, wishes to remain anonymous. It gives valuable insight into the inside world of working at the Puttaparthi General Hospital.

I met several times with a gynecologist at the Sathya Sai General Hospital during my recent trip to Puttaparthi (a friend of a friend who we socialized with). She has been there one year, NOT a devotee, and will soon leave. She completed her Masters a year ago and had very limited experience. She tried working in a corporate hospital in a big city but was concerned about their unethical practices such as filling quotas for unnecessary surgeries, so she left.

She gave me insights into the Puttaparthi hospital interview process.

Telephone Excerpt

Sai General Hospital (GH) Phone Interview Experience:

GH: Are you familiar with Puttaparthi and Sai Baba?

Doc: Yes, I came there as a small girl with my parents.

GH: How wonderful! Then you know about Sai Baba?

Doc: Not much, but yes, I know OF him.

GH: Excellent! When can you start working?

Doc: Uh, what is the salary?

GH: We can give you Rs 62,000 and a room. (Note: after joining, she discovered they had LIED – the salary was only Rs 50,000 and she had to pay for electricity and water bills.)

Doc: How is the room furnished?

GH: Furnished? You need it furnished? We can put a bed in there for you. (When she came, she saw they provided a rickety old hospital bed, labeled “Super Speciality Hospital”!)

Doc: What about a table and chair? A fridge? Cupboards for storage? AC? A vehicle?

GH: None of that will be provided.

IN COMPARISION

These are typical questions that other hospitals asked her during the interveriew experience:

— Where/When did you graduate?
— What were your marks?
— What experience do you have?
— What procedures are you comfortable doing on your own?
— What procedures do you need assistance with?
— We will provide you with Rs 200,000 monthly salary (2 lakhs), with regular increases.
— We will provide you with top class fully furnished accommodation, two bedroom apartment with nice beds, hot water heater, fridge, AC, company vehicle, and of course table, chairs, lots of storage space, etc.

Doctor’s Quarters Conditions

Note: She was lucky to get a room within a couple days of arriving. Other doctors who joined after her, had no room for over a month after they joined, and they had to pay for their own accommodation in Puttaparthi. They continually heard excuses of the room “getting ready”.

I visited her room, which is in the hospital compound (it was not there in the ‘old days,’ when doctors had rooms inside the ashram). There was only one small cupboard in the kitchen – no other storage place anywhere, not even in the bedroom and entry rooms. Utensils and other food items were piled up on the counters. The cover to the toilet seat was gone. It was so sweltering hot in Puttaparthi that she ended up buying her own AC for the room (money provided by her parents, as her salary was insufficient). The mattress on the bed were hard as rock, slightly lumpy, and could not be used – she had purchased her own mattress. There was water damage visible on the walls, probably mold too, and the paint was peeling off from top to bottom. She told me that she saw several accommodations provided to doctors in the Super Speciality hospital and they were WORSE than hers.

She was totally shocked that the General Hospital did not ask nor did they care about any medical experience she might have – they only cared about her knowing about Sai Baba and Puttaparthi!

She didn’t like working at Puttaparthi and did a few more phone interviews with other hospitals, and finally accepted a job offer at a small town in another state, for several times more money than she gets in Puttaparthi.

She said that the Parthi hospitals are understaffed and always trying to rope in people willing to work for cheap wages; however, most new non-devotee employees leave within a few months. She also told older staff who were ardent devotees, would tell her stories of Sai miracles and pressure her on a regular basis to become a devotee and to attend bhajans. Also, she pointed out the lack of sanitation there was a big issue. For example, being free, she said, why of course needles were reused multiple times on multiple patients!

Some of the pictures of the doctor’s room are attached. In India, doctors are treated like VIPs with luxury accommodation when they join a hospital to work in. The doc lady was shocked when she saw what they provided for her!

The decline of The “God Avatar’s” accommodation facilities and unsanitary conditions are telling signs of the transitory nature of pretended divinity and fame. No wonder the gynecologist left asap!
