SHCC recommends penalty on Dar ul Sehat Hospital
KARACHI: Sindh Health Care Commission (SHCC) recommended a monetary penalty on Dar ul Sehat Hospital and ordered the medical facility to sack the ‘untrained’ staff in wake of mistreatment and resultant death of toddler girl Nishwa.
According to the report, the commission has recommended for a fine of Rs. 500,000 on the hospital for ‘negligence’.
The recommendations were made in the report that SHCC drafted on the orders of Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah.
The report will be presented to the provincial chief executive today.
Meanwhile, the male nurse Agha Moiz and midwife Sobia have been declared as responsible for administering the injection to the toddler, which ultimately resulted in her death due to brain damage.
Nishwa was brought to Dar ul Sehat hospital on April 14 where an overdose of Potassium Chloride had severely affected her brain, leaving her nearly brain-dead.
She was subsequently transferred to Karachi’s Liaquat National Hospital where she died on Monday, April 22 after remaining under treatment for nearly a week.
