Misdiagnosing Rajasthan Governor: Health Department faces HIGH LEVEL probe

Rajasthan: Rajasthan State Health Medical Department has now found itself in trouble after the Governor of the state was incorrectly diagnosed with swine-flu at the state-run SMS Hospital.

The governor, who was diagnosed with swine flu at the state-run Sawai Man Singh Hospital, rushed to New Delhi to get a re-test done at the Apollo Hospital, where he was found negative for H1N1 virus, Rajasthan health minister Kalicharan Saraf told the assembly.

“We again got the swab sample tested at the SMS Hospital, which confirmed he is swine flu positive,” Saraf informed the House.

 Earlier in the day, Singh had said in a statement: “After being diagnosed with swine flu at the state-run SMS Hospital, a fresh test conducted at the Apollo Hospital was negative.”

He then sought a high-level inquiry into “the circumstances that led to the faulty report”.

Saraf said a three-member inquiry committee comprising principal secretary (Health and Medical Education) Anand Kumar, SMS Medical College principal U S Agarwal and Dr R K Maheshwari had been set up.

It would submit the report in three days, he added.

  1. So, how about setting up new medical colleges now, when an age old premier institution in State is in controversy on a simple routine test, and that too on a topmost VIP of State????
