LAHORE - The Punjab government has reinstated seven suspended doctors of the Mayo Hospital Lahore on their posts without waiting for recommendations of the newly constituted four-member inquiry committee of senior doctors. The inquiry report which is yet to be submitted to the competent authority, has reportedly held the re-instated doctors responsible for the death of a young girl, Sadaf Munir at the Mayo Hospital emergency. According to yet-to be submitted recommendations of the new inquiry committee, there is strong possibility that the girl, an FSc student of the Ayesha Degree College, Timber Market, Shahdra, might have died due to reaction of the low-priced Maxlon injection that was not included in the index of medicines of the Mayo Hospital emergency department. She died due to anaphlaytic reaction when she was treated with the Maxlon injection, reveal the recommendations. It has been learnt reliably that during the investigation process, the inquiry committee consulted Professor of Pharmacology, King Edward Medical University, Prof Dr Shabbir Bhatti, who endorsed that the girl had died due to reaction of the said injection. The Punjab government decision to reinstate the seven doctors without considering findings of inquiry committee report has put a question mark on government claims of ensuring transparency, accountability and merit in its decisions. The decision to reinstate the suspended doctors was reportedly taken on the immense pressure put up by the doctors' community that had threatened to go on strike for an indefinite period of time if the government did not restore the doctors. The committee, which has formulated its recommendations, is headed by Dr Arif Sadiqui, professor of Medicine Allama Iqbal Medical College/Jinnah Hospital, Lahore. The other members include Dr Muhammad Tayyab, professor of Gyne, Post Graduate Medical Institute (PGMI), Dr Sadaqat, professor of Surgery, Services Institute of Medical Sciences (SIMS) and Dr Ijaz Ahmad Sheikh, M S, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Lahore. A source in the Punjab Health Department claimed that the inquiry committee was to submit its recommendations to the Health Department on July 18 (Friday). The committee, however, withheld its decision of submitting the report till Saturday (today). It has been learnt that committee members are much perturbed over the decision and would decide in a couple of days whether or not to submit their recommendations to the Punjab Government. The Nation has reliably learnt that inquiry committee in its recommendations has highlighted the most important issue of purchase of a low-priced injection Maxlon (Metchlorpamid) that was administered to the FSc student instead of recommended Marzine injection and it caused her death. The said injection (Maxlon) was not found in the list of medicines of the pharmacy situated in the emergency department of the Mayo Hospital, Lahore. This low-priced injection was administered as alternate to the approved Marzine injection. It came to be known to the committee members during investigation that the young girl Sadaf Munir was brought to the hospital by his father on June 19 with complaint of vomiting. She was sick, but her condition was not critical at all. According to the recommendations, "When Resuscitation was attempted by the doctors, the bulb of laryngscope (Instrument to insert breathing tube in the mouth) was fused and so patient had to be shifted from second floor to ground floor ICU. In the meantime the girl was pronounced dead". Resultantly, both the administration and the emergency doctors are responsible for the death of the young girl, the report further reveals.
