Health dept initiates inquiry on reaction after injection

Health department has initiated an inquiry within the district hospital Rajouri after some patients developed reactions after injected with Intra Venous Fluids while some sources are suspecting it to be a plot to defame the Jammu and Kashmir Medical Supplies Corporation Limited so that free distribution of medicines and other allied products among the patients gets affected.
As per details available with Greater Kashmir, an inquiry has been initiated inside district hospital Rajouri which is headed by Officiating Medical Superintendent Dr. Rakesh Sharma and is probing the possible cause behind the developing of reaction among several patients in which one young boy had died already.
Sources stated that inquiry has been started which is headed by Officiating Medical Superintendent Dr. Rakesh Sharma while Chief Medical Officer Dr. Younis Ahmed is himself supervising it. ” It has been observed by the department that majority of the cases of reactions reported from district hospital are from Emergency and Medicines ward while no major reaction case has been reported from other wards of the hospital ” sources stated.
” Samples of those IV fluids, Drip Sets and Needles have been seized which were used while treatment for patients who developed reactions and all these samples are being send for further test ” sources further added.
Meanwhile some sources within the health department while showing another picture associated with this issue pointed out a suspicion about a plot to defame JKMSCL so that free distribution of medicine supply in government hospitals is affected.
” Medicines worth several crores has been received in hospital for free distribution among the people while an order has also been issued in which doctors have been directed to prescribe the medicines available in the hospital store and this all is a matter of problem for some outsiders ” sources stated.
Same supply of IV Fluid and other products has been made in other hospitals where there is no reaction case and it indicts something fishy cooked for district hospital Rajouri ” sources predicted.
Why reaction is only confined to some specific wards of the hospitals when same supply is being made in all the wards ” they further said.
When contacted Chief Medical Officer Rajouri, Dr. Younis Ahmed, he said that an inquiry is going on in district hospital Rajouri to find out the possible cause of the reaction among the patients and they cannot predict the exact reason of reaction at this time.
” IV fluid, Drip Sets and Other things used with those patients who developed reaction have been seized and rest things will only be clear after the inquiry and seized samples are being send to higher authorities for further probe ” CMO added.
It is pertinent here to mention that six patients have so far developed reactions after injected IV fluid in Emergency and Medicines Ward of District Hospital Rajouri out of which one 20 years old and Graduation Ist year student namely Shakeel Ahmed son of Ghulam Qadir resident of Dodaj Darhal developed severe reactions and was referred to GMCH Jammu on 29th of June but he died on the way.
