Diagnostic centres running without doctors, technologists

Update : 09 Mar 2014, 09:33 PM

The Directorate General of Health Services officials yesterday found two diagnostic centres in Green Super Market of the capital running without any doctor and technologist.

The Hospital and Clinic Department of DGHS conducted the drive on the 3rd floor of the market and found no doctor or medical technologist at Delta Diagnostic Centre and Bangladesh Diagnostic Centre. There were only lab attendants who did not have any kind of professional training.

The inspection team seized a bunch of blank papers meant for pathological reports with the signatures of pathologists.

Expired chemical reagents used for medical tests were found in refrigerators.

The diagnostic centres’ licences were not updated and they could not also provide the patients’ register.

Inspection team leader Swapan Kumar told the Dhaka Tribune that there were no police with them, and so they could not take any action against the owners of diagnostic centres.

Prof Dr Abdul Hannan, director of the Hospital and Clinic Department, said they would issue show-cause notice to the owners of the diagnostic centres.

Swapan said an application was submitted to the DGHS for opening a diagnostic centre named BD Zin Limited, but the address mentioned in the application form was not found in the Green Super Market.
