Early Times Report

Jammu, May 18: In a shocking revelation, none of the Health institutions in the State had maintained the records of end user patients to whom the medicines worth over Rs 100 crore were issued in last five years, raising the suspicion of embezzlement.
Sources told Early Times that non maintenance of end user records by health institutions in Jammu divisions to identity end user patients have raised many doubts on proper distribution and consumption of the medicines in absence of which it could not be ascertained as to whether the medicines/ drugs had actually been received by the patients visiting these Health institutions. "In view of the fact that none of the health institutions from the level of Medical College Hospital down to Primary Health Centers had maintained any verifiable end-user medicine distribution and consumption records, the distribution of drugs/ medicines and other consumables over Rs 100 crore purchased by these units during the last five years to the patients, could not be revealed by the health institutions," they said.
Astonishingly, the Medical Superintendents/ Block Medical Officers of many health institutions, while admitting that no verifiable end user records were maintained, attributed same to lack of adequate man power in IPD/OPD wings of the hospitals and due to failure to formulate a policy for making proper records of end-users, they informed. In another issue to assess the extent of availability of drugs/ medicines in the health institutions under beneficiary survey which was carried out among many patients, the survey data showed that of the 572 medicines prescribed for the patients, only 323 durgs/Medicines were provided free by health institutions and 43 per cent medicines had to be procured by patients from the market and moreover the medicines which were provided were not adequate.
