Team of doctors seal nursing home, pathology for lack of facilities

A police team on guard outside a nursing home, as doctors team inspects the facilities, in Mysore on Saturday. DH PhotoLatha Nursing Home in that locality was sealed by a team of officers led by District Health and Family Welfare Officer Dr D S Nagaraj Rao on Saturday.

The officer told Deccan Herald that the particular ‘hospital’ lacked proper infrastructure, the only reason forcing the team to close it down.

The doctors at the hospital had been told to improve the facilities during the recent visit. However, they had defied the instructions.

Pathology lab locked

Likewise, a pathology in the same locality, run by a lone technician was also locked during the raid.

Named ‘Biotech’ it was functioning in a little space of 6x3 feet. What’s further shocking was, the premises was devoid of toilet, and pathologists to validate the results- requisites according to the law.

The only experience the technician had was having studied the similar subject.
The officer said it’s a warning to the similar institutions that have been blatantly violating the orders.

DC’s instruction

When the issue was brought to the notice of Deputy Commissioner Harsh Gupta in a recent meeting, the officer had instructed to initiate stern actions against such erring firms, the doctor added.

The team also comprised District Surgeon Vamdev, Indian Medical Association (IMA), Mysore chapter president Dr Harish, District Cholera Control Officer Dr Somashekar, and District Ayush Officer Dr Nagesh. A police team from Udayagiri Station provided security cover to the raid.
