Punjab Chief Minister’s Visit to Government Teaching and Mayo Hospital, Assessment of Facilities
Lahore: (Suno News) Punjab Chief Minister Mohsen Nauvi visited various wards of Government Teaching Hospital Shahdra, inquired about the patients, and assessed medical facilities.
Despite the presence of stock of Ringer’s injection in the pharmacy, patients raised concerns about non-provision and ordering injections from outside.
Chief Minister Mohsen Nauvi said that there was a stock of Ringer’s injection in the pharmacy. After observing the situation, he expressed serious concern, reprimanded the senior medical officer, and ordered the immediate return of money to the patients who ordered injections from outside.
Mohsen Nauvi said that despite having stock in the pharmacy, there was no justification for ordering injections from outside. Poor patients spend money to get injections from outside, and if the hospital’s pharmacy has injections available, then what kind of management is this? If such complaints are received in the future, strict action will be taken.
Later, Chief Minister Mohsen Nauvi visited Mayo Hospital and inspected the construction work of the under-construction Emergency Block up-gradation, including the Ground, First, Second, Third, and Fourth floors. He examined the pace of construction work on each floor.
