Healthcare @ Public Hospitals: Expired Kits in use?
Faulty diagnostic kits were being used to test blood meant for transfusions in major public hospitals.
Apparently - the expiry dates on these diagnostic kits had been tampered with. From prelimanary reports this went on for a year or more.
Result: In West Bengal, cases of Hepatitis and HIV have spiralled.
Cause: ZERO Accountability. Rampant Corruption.
And What is the Health Minister busy with?
Calling institute body meeting of AIIMS - to discuss charges against its director. Read Here.
Dear Mr Health Minister - there are very large number of public health care centers in india, most of them in total mess. Have you ever called a meeting to discuss that?
