TWO clinics were sealed for violation of Nursing Act. The action was taken by a district administration’s team as per State Administration’s directives.
It needs to be mentioned here that the district administration has started tightening noose on private nursing homes, clinics and private hospital owners to make sure that Nursing Act norms are strictly followed. Raids are being conducted regularly in this regard.

In a similar raid that was reportedly conducted by a block-level team comprising Sarangarh Naib Tehsildar Ms Madhu Gabel, Block Medical Officer Dr J R Dhritlehare and Kosir Station House Officer Vivek Anand, two clinics were sealed on violation of the Nursing Home Act-2013. The sealed clinics were Sushant Bakshi Clinic and Shyamlal Malakar’s clinic.

The team also recovered expiry date medicines from the clinic of Dr Prabhu Dahya Khare, informed the sources, adding that further actions were on.
