Inquiry initiated at KEMU over stolen equipment


An inquiry has been ordered to probe into the case of stolen equipment worth Rs 2 million from Mayo hospital
Two dermatomes and a camera worth Rs 2 million were stolen from Mayo Hospital’s Plastic Surgery Operation theatre.
An inquiry has been initiated under KEMU controller examination against the KEMU Registrar AMS Nawab Deen and the budget accounts officer Mayo Hospital are members of the inquiry team.
The staff nurse in-charge in her written statement said that “Prof Farid Khan, KEMU registrar and Head of plastic surgery, used to take the equipment to his private hospital (Surgimed Hospital) in the past and she is unable to comment that who took it this time from the theatre.”
Young Doctors Association (YDA) has challenged the transparency of the committee and demanded Punjab health secretary to look into the matter personally.
It alleged that the equipment had been missing for two months and nothing would be recovered despite the inquiry.
