Lapses in working of Pvt Hospitals in Telangana

Hyderabad: The surprise inspection by Telangana State Medical Council (TSMC) of private hospitals, nursing homes and clinics in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation limits led to the discovery of number of lapses. TSMC discovered that few consultants from other states were practising without TSMC registration, while some of the registrations had expired. The TSMC was shocked to learn that many hospitals had appointed AYUSH doctors as Duty Medical Officers (DMO’s) while a few have gone one step further and appointed Pharm degree holders as Duty Medical Officers and were also writing the case sheets pertaining to the patients.

Following the inspections, the TSMC directed all the super speciality hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, private hospitals and also the Registered Medical Practitioners in the state to appoint only MBBS degree holders as DMO’s.The TSMC said that in case of any violations, appropriate action will be taken as per the The Telangana Medical Practitioners Registration (TSMPR) Act and NMC Act 2019 against those found guilty.
