NEIGRIHMS imbroglio: Meghalaya govt urges Centre to order probe
By Nenow 15-May-2019
The standoff led to the shutdown of Cardiology department’s services.
The state government urged the Centre eight months ago to remove Dr DM Thapa, the director of the North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS) in Shillong.
Meghalaya health minister A.L. Hek said the Centre has been apprised verbally of what is going on at NEIGRIHMS, and he would officially write to union health minister J.P. Nadda on the need to institute an inquiry committee.
Earlier, surgery of patients could not be conducted in the Cardiology department of NEIGRIHMS due to non-availability of required equipment such stents and pacemakers.
The NEIGRIHMS administration claimed that the services of the Cardiology department were shut down because the head of the Cardiology department was not co-operating with the administration with regards to making treatment of poor patients affordable as per the union health ministry regulations.
But Dr Animesh Mishra, the head of Cardiology department, denied the allegations, and said that not a single patient was operated by violating the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority guidelines.
