Bijnor: In a surprise raid at a private hospital in Bijnor, it was found that surgeries were carried out without authorised surgeons and there were sales of prohibited medicines from unlicensed medical stores.
Families of patients had earlier made several complaints on the matter. Senior officials, including SDM, Sadar, Mohit Kumar; deputy chief medical officer Devidas; drugs inspector Umesh Bharti; and circle officer Anil Kumar were involved in the raid.
The team found recuperating patients, including five women, at the hospital. But, no one knew about the surgeon. The patients were later shifted to district hospital for treatment.
SDM, Mohit Kumar, said a medical store was being run without licence on the premises of the “illegal” hospital.
“Besides, there was no fire NOC. A certificate for ETP was found, but no plant present. So, the hospital was sealed and an FIR registered against its staff and the owner,” Kumar added.
Deputy chief medical officer, Devidas, said, “Such raids will continue to curb illegal medical activities.”
