Taking stern action against the rule breaker Nagpur Municipal Commissioner, Radhakrishnan B, has imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh and suspended Covid test facility at Dhruv Pathology Lab for not following Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) norms until the further notice.
Earlier NMC gave notice to three laboratories Dhruv Pathology Lab (Ramdaspeth), Vishwas (Ramdaspeth) and Metro (Dhantoli) for violating the directives of ICMR
In the inspection, NMC officials found that there was a difference in the online registration data and lack of real time record of the test and many reports were pending without monitoring the registration.
Officials had received complaints about these laboratories delaying testing samples and taking a long time in issuing reports to patients.
It was found that Dhruv Pathalogoy lab failed to report NMC the exact number of patients who were found positive while being tested at the lab and the number of test conducted in a day were also pot recorded.
