Early Times Report

BARAMULLA, June 24: For not following the norms set by health department, eight clinical establishments and two hospitals were sealed today by BMO Pattan and scores were warned to make improvement and follow the guidelines in letter and spirit.
According to sources on the directions of health authorities, DHO Baramulla and Block Medical Officer Pattan Dr Masarat Iqbal checked the clinical establishment of block Pattan that were not following the guidelines which were laid from the health and medical education department and with the result 8 clinical establishments and two hospitals were sealed.
However, the authorities also warned around 15 clinics to make improvement and follow guide lines within one week otherwise stringent action will be taken against them, sources told ET.
Sources said that there were some complaints about the functioning of these clinics and there was mushrooming of diagnostic centers that were operating without the basic registration.
Authorities also issued warning to other diagnostic labs that were found to have lacunae as per the rules laid down for such centers, said sources.
Sources said that a team of health officials raided clinical establishments on Sunday sealed the diagnostic labs that it found were not registered at DHSK.
These centers were not registered with this department which is a pre-requisite under Clinical Establishment Act, sources informed.
It is also learnt that the drive comes as pleasant news to stakeholders who often find themselves in the grip of unregistered diagnostic centers that have often been found employing unqualified people for sophisticated diagnostic tests and charging hefty amounts for these, adding that experts believe that more needs to be done in the direction.
Sources believe that surprise checks were conducted to 'streamline the functioning of diagnostic centers & clinic establishments and to curb menace of quackery.
Sources also said that BMO Pattan collected blood sample from Lalpath Lab Located at Pattan.
The officer had visited the said collection center and found no such facilities available in the Center which is compulsory for a Lab to collect the samples.
The officer has said that the sample collection will be sent to Srinagar for observation as there is no proper way of carrying the sample to such a distant place, as I found no vaccine carrier in the Lab, sources while quoting the BMO as having said.
The BMO has appealed the locals of Pattan area to visit SDH Pattan for any type tests as all type of tests are done in the hospital free of cost for pregnant ladies.
