A team of vigilance bureau (VB) raided the local veterinary hospital near Modi College on Thursday, and conducted checking for about six hours.

Patiala vigilance SP Paramjit Singh Virk said, “The hospital records regarding medicines and other medical facilities were not preserved as per directions.”

“The hospital has a mobile ambulance to provide medical facilities in far and near areas. But, in the ambulance records, the staff has only mentioned the name of the livestock owner. No record of semen distribution has been maintained for past three months,” Virk said. “Only the attendance record was maintained properly.”

He said, “Records were checked for availability of doctors/staff on duty and emergency medicines. Physical verifications of essential equipment were also done. Entries made in the register were checked for authenticity. Measures for sanitation in the hospital were also inspected.”

He said it was a routine check on the directions of higher authorities of the vigilance department. We verified local purchases done by the hospital. A report on this will be submitted to the higher authorities.

“Recommendations will also be made to the government regarding deficiencies in services, and shortage of medicines and equipment in the hospital,” said Virk.
