Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Feb 12: Many of the private hospitals in Jammu and Kashmir divisions of the state are running without the necessary legal formalities, while as there are some others whose registration has expired long back and the same has not been renewed as yet.
Registration of a leading private hospital of Srinagar expired seven years back in January 2012 and the same had not been renewed so far. The people manning the affairs of the hospital were virtually risking the lives of the people who would go there and receive treatment for various ailments.
Many complaints were lodged by the people in this regard and it took Directorate of Health Services Kashmir more than seven years to wake up and take punitive action against the hospital known as Imam Hussain Hospital. The hospital is located in the Bemina area and is situated just few kilometers away from the city centre.
The Directorate of Health Services Kashmir sealed the Ultra Sonography (USG), Dialysis and Theatre sections of the Imam Hussain Hospital today. These sections were not registered under the necessary Act and in a way the people getting attention in these sections were at the risk of extreme danger.
Sources told Early Times that if this is the situation in the heart of city one can easily imagine the situation prevailing in the other districts of Kashmir and Jammu divisions respectively. They said the health administrators need to crack a whip on private hospitals and nursing homes that are working without registration or have not gone for renewal of registration.
A spokesman of the health department said that taking cognizance of frequent complaints against Imam Hussain Hospital, Directorate of Health Services Kashmir swung into action in the best interest of patient care under Jammu & Kashmir Nursing Homes & Clinical Establishments (Registration & Licensing) Act, 1963 Amendment 2006 and sealed three sections of the hospital.
"The three sections USG, Dialysis and Theatre were running illegally and were not registered as per the Act in vogue. In this regard a committee of officers was constituted by Director Health Services Kashmir vide order no: DHSK/Reg/Legal/747-52 dated 11-02-2019. The committee was headed by Dr. Peerzada Fayaz Ahmad, Deputy Director Health Services (Schemes) Kashmir for the purpose of sealing the said hospital units," said the spokesman.
The spokesman said that the said hospital authority had been many times warned not to run the hospital facility without getting it renewed as the registration had already expired on 23-01-2012 which they did not respond. From time to time the hospital administrators were informed to fulfill the criteria for renewal of the registration, he said.
"For the same inspections were conducted to ensure they improve the facility under norms, but the deficiencies found by the inspecting teams were not fulfilled which resulted into issuance of notices too at times. Since the said facility was run illegally in violation of the Act it was deemed fit by the appropriate authority to seal the unregistered facility with immediate effect," said the spokesman.
