Srinagar, Feb 12 : Taking cognizance of the frequent complaints against Immam 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 viz USG, Dialysis & Theatre as the same were run 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 headed by Dr. Peerzada Fayaz Ahmad, Deputy Director Health Services (Schemes) Kashmir for the purpose of sealing the said hospital units.
It was informed 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 said hospital administrators were informed to fulfill the criteria for renewal of the registration for which 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 illegally run in violation of the Act it was deemed fit by the appropriate authority to seal the unregistered facility with immediate effect.
