Zirakpur, October 14

A team of the district administration and the Health and the Police departments today conducted a surprise check at Swastik Hospital, Gazipur Road, Zirakpur, and sealed the hospital till further orders after major irregularities were found. The administration has recommended an FIR against the management of the hospital and sought necessary action from the Mohali Civil Surgeon.

Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Dera Bassi, Kuldeep Bawa said illegal activities were being run on the pretext of treatment. A team comprising a medical officer, Dr Mehtab, the MC Inspector, Zirakpur, Rishab, ASI Barinder Singh and the SDM was formed. The team found illegal practices there, including an attendant, Ajinderpal Singh, acting as a qualified doctor without any documents of a qualified doctor. He only had the paper of a trainee pharmacist, which expired on July 31, 2020.

Bawa said Ajinderpal disclosed that Dr Pragati was running the affairs of the hospital, whose duty started in the evening but her documents did not establish that she was a qualified doctor except that she was an Ayurvedic doctor. The team also found bogus stamps from the hospital in which Dr Pragati was termed an MD. —TNS
