Bogus patho labs mushrooming in Khurdha

Bhubaneswar: Even as the government has taken so many initiatives to provide facilities of free diagnosis at all government hospitals in State, hundreds of illegal diagnosis centres are allegedly exploiting poor patients regularly in Khurdha district.

Health department sources said more than 500 unregistered clinical laboratories are functioning in Khurda district while only 294 are providing service with valid registration.

Out of total registered laboratories, Bhubaneswar has maximum 202 diagnosis centres. Similarly, 14 authorised centres are running in Khurda sub-division while Jatani and Balipatna have seven and three registered labs respectively, sources added.
