CM URGED FOR MASCLAV1.2 STOCK REMOVAL
Sunday, 26 April 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Members of the Balangir Action Committee led by its president Gopalji Panigrahi on Saturday submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik through CDMO Dr RN Tripathy seeking withdrawal of all stocks of antibiotic injection Masclav1.2, which were found unusable recently, and actions against corrupt officials involved in supply of the injection.
Among others, Gopal Acharya and advocate Bhavani Satpathy were in the team. Their three-point charter of demands included withdrawal of antibiotic injection Masclav1.2 (Batch no ML 1485), testing the vials and conduct of an inquiry to know the side effects if any patient or patients have suffered due to intake of the injection in hospitals across the district.
Hospital records show that these injection vials have already been distributed to Sub-Divisional Hospitals of the district. The members too showed the CDMO some poor quality injection syringes which were for use at the DHH. They also expressed concern that the Sunstroke Ward at the DHH was not equipped with adequate facility and poor quality gloves were being used in the hospital.
