Puducherry,Oct 3: Functioning of the operation theaters in the government hospitals here were affected as the Puducherry Health Department Staffs Association boycotted work for two hours from 8am on Thursday.
They were demanding the filling up of the vacant operation theater attendants post to reduce their workload among other things.
The association alleged that despite rules that an attendant needs to take care of one table, presently one is attending three tables.
They also threatened to intensify their agitation if the government failed to take proper remedial steps.(UNI)
