Jewel Chowdhury, Habiganj /
Private hospitals and diagnostic centers have sprung up in different parts of Habiganj. And most of these do not have a license. Some people do not have inexperienced doctors, technologists. Even then they are doing their throat cutting business. Taking advantage of the vulnerabilities of ordinary patients, the patients are being taken away from the hospital through brokers. After taking them here, they are collecting large sums of money. It is often seen that these hospitals are being fined by the mobile courts for various reasons including arrest of fake doctors. But even then their reins are not going to be pulled.
A mobile court on Sunday (September 26th) fined hospital authorities and a doctor for providing treatment using the names and surnames of doctors abroad at Moon General Hospital in Shaistanagar.
A team led by RAB-9’s Habiganj camp commander Nahid Hasan and an executive magistrate raided the hospital on a tip-off. At that time, after checking and sorting the documents of doctor Tasnim Sultana, it was seen that she had passed MBBS. But without internship, he is giving treatment using the name and surname of others. The executive magistrate of the mobile court fined him Tk 25,000 and sentenced him to two months imprisonment for non-payment.
Meanwhile, the hospital authorities fined him Tk 10,000 for hiring him without checking the documents. Earlier, an executive magistrate of the district administration raided Moon Hospital and arrested a fake doctor. Even then the patients are being cheated in this hospital.
In this regard, RAB Habiganj camp commander Nahid Hasan said, Tasnim Sultana has been using the name and surname of a doctor who has been abroad for a long time. He was fined after conducting a raid on the basis of secret information. They have a list of a few more private clinics. These hospitals will also be raided in phases.
In this regard, District Civil Surgeon Dr. Mostafizur Rahman said, “We will prepare a list and send a letter to each clinic and will take action after checking the documents of the doctors of these hospitals.”
