LAHORE, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 12th Sep, 2018 ) :Taking action on complaints, the Punjab Healthcare Commission on Wednesday sealed two healthcare establishments after probe into the matter for wrong treatment and non-implementation of the minimum service delivery standards (MSDS).

According to available information, a 23-bed Meer Unani Hospital at Chowk Yateem Khana was closed after a probe was completed on the complaint of 23-year-old Muhammad Ishaq.

He had maintained in his application that Hakeem Asif Meer had assured him of walking on his feet after a six-month treatment though he was paralysed.

The promise remained elusive despite five-year-long treatment, and toes of the patient were amputated by the hakeem to save his legs.

Upon thorough probe into complainant's allegations, the PHC closed down the hospital, and sent the case of Hakim Asif to the Pakistan National Council for Tibb for further action.

The second complaint was received via e-mail about a drug addiction and treatment centre- New Life Welfare Centre, Toba Tek Singh.

The PHC team visited the facility, and found that there were no emergency cover, psychiatry and health professionals, while 13 inmates were kept in subhuman conditions, and were often brutally tortured.

All the detained ones were shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital for treatment, and the centre was closed down.
