Islamabad: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Health Dr. Zafar Mirza visited PIMS hospital here today. He inquired after the health of a girl child who was brought to PIMS with injury on her arm and later amputated. The family had alleged that the child’s arm was amputated due to negligence of hospital staff.
Dr. Zafar Mirza expressed sympathies with the family and presented the affected girl child with flowers and chocolates. SAPM on Health said an inquiry has been ordered and whoever is found responsible would be dealt with strictly. As soon as I learnt about the matter, I contacted Executive Director PIMS and asked to immediately constitute an inquiry committee to probe the matter, said Dr. Zafar Mirza. I suggested that the committee should include members other then PIMS doctors.
Dr. Zafar Mirza assured the family that in case inquiry establishes negligence, stern action will be taken. He urged the affected family to wait for outcome of the inquiry and rest-assured that justice would be done.
