Notices have been issued by the district health department to as many as 13 nursing homes and private hospitals in Phaphamau area. The owners of the nursing homes have been asked to submit the copy of their registration within three days at the CMO office.
They have also been warned of strict action in case they were found running nursing homes without getting licence and other mandatory registration.
Following the complaints that many nursing homes were running without proper licence in Phaphamau area, chief medical officer Dr Shantimal Singhavi recently constituted a team to check the licence of nursing homes, hospitals and private clinics. The team led by Dr VK Mishra checked 13 nursing homes and private hospitals in Phaphamau.
As most of the nursing homes failed to present the required papers, they were issued three-day notice asking them to produce the copy of at least four mandatory registration certificates.
"These are general licence certificate, CMO office registration certificate, bio-medical waste disposal certificate and a no objection certificate issued by the Pollution Control Board. In case any one certificate was found missing strict action will be taken against the owner of that nursing home.
A public notice has also been issued by the CMO in this regard and the owners of nursing homes need to be very careful," said Dr VK Mishra.
Dr VK Mishra said the nursing homes and clinics were checked following a complaint made by some local people that some doctors were running nursing homes and clinics in an unauthorised manner in Phaphamau. Very soon the other nursing homes in the city would also be checked, he added.
