GUWAHATI, Aug 2 - The Joint Inspection Team of the Kamrup Metro district administration carried out a surprise inspection at the city-based Good Health Hospital today and found a number of discrepancies at the place.

Senior district administration officials said the team, led by Additional Deputy Commissioner F Ahmed, found that the hospital was conducting operations in general surgery, orthopedic and urology without having the requisite permission.

�On the spot written notice was handed over to the hospital authority stating that such operations cannot be performed till the hospital receives necessary permission,� said an official.

The inspection team also found that the fire safety NOC, trade licence and the certificate from the Pollution Control Board with the hospital had expired in March 2014.

�While hospital officials said they have applied for renewal of these licences and permission, they were not able to furnish the appropriate papers. So tomorrow, the hospital will be issued a show cause notice by the team,� said the official, adding that action against the hospital will be taken if it fails to rectify the shortcomings and take necessary action as per provisions of the law.

Besides Ahmed, the inspection team which visited the hospital also included Extra Assistant Commissioner (EAC) Sujata Suchibrata and Joint Director of Health Dr Ganesh Kalita, along with other officials.

Sources said similar inspections are likely to be carried out in other city-based private hospitals and health centres in the coming days.
