Darul Sehat Hospital OPD sealed

The Out-patient Department, OPD of Darul Sehat Hospital has been sealed by the Sindh Health Care Commission (SHCC), on Wednesday night, says Chairman Health Care Commission Dr. Tipu Sultan.

The hospital management has also been ordered to transfer all the in-house patients to other medical facilities within 48 hours.

As the SHCC team, along with a contingent of police personnel and area assistant commissioner, reached the DSH, they faced resistance from the hospital staff.

According to an SHCC official, there were 45 in-house patients admitted to the hospital when the team reached the premises.

The staff also shouted slogans and attempted to stop the officials from entering the premises. The protesting staff was faced off by citizens, who were calling on the officials to seal the facility.

Earlier, reportedly over 100 employees of Darul Sehat hospital reached the Shahrah-e-Faisal Police Station for apprehension to register their protest, four of them were taken into custody by police.

This development came after the directives of the chief minister Sindh, who had earlier expressed reservations over the report submitted by the commission regarding the case of the minor girl Nashwa, who passed away after being administered the wrong medication at a private hospital earlier this month.

The Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah said that “I am not satisfied with the report and even the health minister has expressed her reservations over it”. He further added that strict action would be taken against the doctors involved in the incident.

CM Sindh also said that the health commission had mentioned in its report that more than 50% of the staff at the hospital was untrained.
“This is a serious matter and cannot be tolerated,” he said.

Mr. CM also said that the persons nominated in the FIR registered by Qaiser Ali, Nashwa’s father, would be arrested. “This is not a question of influential or privileged people. The law will take its course,” he further stressed.

According to the report, released by the SHCC on Tuesday, Nashwa was wrongly administered an injection at Darul Sehat Hospital (DUSH) which “proved to be lethal for her”.

The report also indicated that the Midwife Sobia and Nursing Assistant Moiz “responsible for negligence”. Their case should be referred to the Nursing and Midwifery Council for disciplinary action, it suggested.

The report also held the DUSH “liable for medical negligence” and recommended Rs500,000 penalties on the hospital. “DUHS administration should immediately remove all untrained staff,” it added.
