Kano closes hospitals for alleged unethical practise

13 September 2013, 08:40

Kano - The Kano State Government on Thursday ordered the closure of two health centres for alleged unethical practise, poor sanitary conditions and illegal operations.

The centres are Triple Care Diagnostic centre and Ali Dental health centres which were located at Jakara ward in Municipal Local council and Kurnar Asabe, respectively.

The diagnostic centre was closed for alleged unethical practise and poor sanitary conditions, while the dental centre was sealed over alleged illegal operations.

Three members of staff of the hospital, who were arrested according to the statement, will be criminally charged.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Private Health Institution, Dr Salisu Ahmed,  frowned at the attitudes of proprietors of some private health institution toward their clients.

Ahmed said the present administration was fully committed to sanitising and improving the health care services in the state.

The aide, however, warned that the state would not tolerate any act of indiscipline and unethical conduct in the health sector.
