16

The Punjab Healthcare Commission on Wednesday sealed three operation theatres and banned admissions of new patients in a private hospital for carrying out an unsuccessful procedure, resulting in a patient’s death.

As per details, a complainant Shoaib Ahmed had submitted an application with the PHC maintaining that his wife went to a cosmetic and plastic surgery hospital (located in Johar Town) to get the liposuction surgery.

However, she collapsed during anaesthesia and could not recover.

The applicant has attributed the death to non-professionalism, gross medical negligence and insufficient emergency facilities at the private hospital.
