Hospitals & Clinics in KARACHI are in the grip & stronghold of untrained medical staff who pretends to be a physicians & who dispenses medical advice too.
A bunch of unprofessional, fake doctors, compounders, untrained nursing staffs [male/female] have confined the hospitals & they act as a medical quack or charlatan.
A deceiver, a cheater or trickster who impresses the attendant and behaves like a doctor but they are not a ‘’real doctor’’ but a fraudster. They are regular threat to the community & a curse to the society, said the victims’ family who lost their loved one.
There is a gang of such elements working under the noose of ‘’medical doctors and hospital management’’ who appoints such illiterates to run the clinical works with inexperienced staff on low wage.
The hospital’s management fosters & pampers the growth of such mafia with the aim to save money instead hiring competent & qualified doctors
They hire untrained & unqualified person, most of the hospitals running in Karachi don’t have eligible trained nursing staff but ‘’quack’’ causing loss of human lives.
Quackery is one of the leading causes of increasing mortality rates in Pakistan, says Dr Tipu Sultan.
They are aggressive & ruthless, killing innocent people & that’s KARACHI encountered last month with 4 consecutive deaths reported in media.
The attendants arrive at the hospital in even and odd hours with their loved ones to treat but back home with the dead body. The consecutive 4 deaths in Karachi, the reason behind this tragedy were dispensing wrong injection by wrong people.
It’s not only the ineptness of medical doctors or hospital management but ineptocracy of Sindh Govt.
Chief Minister Sindh, Health Ministry, Sindh Health Care Commission (SHCC), Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner [in Karachi] have failed management where GOVERNANCE from Sindh govt. has been a big question mark?

The parents of the deceased girl in their statements to the police said that their daughter died within minutes after being administered the injection. My daughter had cough and flu, she was administered an injection by a man claiming to be a doctor. Immediately after the injection, her condition deteriorated and she passed away
On the suspect’s advice; the family took the girl to the nearby Al-Mustafa Medical Centre in Gulshan, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
The suspect, after questioning the father regarding the girl’s symptoms, wrote down a few medicines on his prescription pad and asked him to procure them from a nearby medical store.
“He injected my daughter and her condition deteriorated within moments. The (suspect) doctor had not even withdrawn the syringe from her arm and she began foaming at the mouth,” the girl’s father shared his agonizing episode with the media.

Nashwa an infant girl who suffered brain damage due to negligence of doctors of a hospital in Karachi passed away on Monday after being under treatment for a week.

Following the injection, Nashwa lips turned blue and she started to have trouble breathing, the father said in his report. The infant was then taken to the intensive care unit (ICU) and was administered CPR for 45 minutes and her breathing was restored.
Nashwa was then put on a ventilator. After her ventilator was taken off, doctors told Qaiser that his daughter may have suffered brain damage due to the CPR being performed on her for 45 minutes.
It’s a medical negligence because of using untrained staff help who was not eligible to extend medical support when the patient arrives at hospitals
On April 7, one of the two children, identified as Nashwa, was allegedly administered an overdose of potassium chloride and that too not via a drip, the FIR said. Minutes later, her lips turned blue and she began having trouble breathing.

On April 12, when Nashwa was taken off the ventilator, doctors informed the father that she “may have suffered a brain injury” due to lack of oxygen supply to the brain that might have been a result of CPR performed on her for 45 minutes.
Though Sindh Health Care Commission (SHCC) has sealed Darul Sehat Hospital’s out-patient department (OPD) and suspects are under trial in the court but lives lost certainly will not come back, sad the aggrieved father.
It also stated that around 70 out of 165 nurses at the hospital were untrained. The SHCC, in its report, had termed Nashwa’s death “an act of grave negligence by the duty nursing staff”
Four suspects — including a female doctor Sobia, nursing in-charge Atif Javed, deputy administration officer Ahmed Shahzad, security in-charge Adeel and another employee, Agha Moiz — have been detained and booked along with five senior staffers of the Darul Sehat Hospital over alleged wrong treatment of the child on April 7 that paralyzed Nashwa 9 month old baby.

Both the doctors appeared to join the trial after obtaining protective pre-arrest bail from the Sindh High Court.
Its need of the time to get rid of quack, a forged doctors killing our children using lethal injection, malpractices and negligence on the part of hospitals must immediately be ceased, demanded by group of victim family for not to appoint unqualified and untrained nursing staff in the hospitals – the recent example of Aids detection in Rotadero Larkana is vivid that how fake doctors dispensed wrong injection resulting made the entire community infected with Aids.
