Minister displeased by quality of healthcare at Ctg Medical Center Hospital

Dhaka, July 06 - Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr. Samanta Lal Sen dropped in at Chittagong Medical Center Hospital on Friday evening, as part of his drive to pay surprise visits to different medical institutions in order to get a better idea of the care and service on offer.

Overall he came away from this latest inspection unimpressed as the hospital even failed to produce its license to operate as a medical centre.

The health minister also expressed dissatisfaction at not seeing the doctors on duty at the hospital wearing aprons.

"The two doctors I talked to did not have any aprons on. The hospital did not have a license during the visit," Dr Sen said.

There was also no sucker machine in the emergency department, he added.

After the inspection, the health minister expressed his dissatisfaction over the overall quality of healthcare in the hospital, and told the hospital authorities that he would take necessary steps having seen the unsatisfactory state of healthcare at the hospital.-UNB
