Dr Harsh vardhan Rubbishes The Allegations Of Victimization Of CVO In MCI
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is facing allegation of a chief vigilance officer , attached to Medical Councils of India .Now Ministry ,calling these charges baseless, said that the repatriation of this CVO to his parent department is to be decided by DoPT
Dr Harsh Vardhan regretted that this “non-issue” had been turned into a personal attack on him by some media. He said, “My agenda to reform medical education and root out corruption in all institutions continues notwithstanding these reports
Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Health Minister, has stated that the media reports based on the Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) attached to the Medical Council of India (MCI) are without basis on facts and end up confusing the people.
“Some reports say I have removed him, which is absurd. Others say that I put the officer to personal risk by not repatriating him, which is equally untrue,” the Minister said here today.
The Updates provided by The Ministry are as under
[1]The CVO in question, Mr H. K. Jethi, an officer of the Allied Services ie Indian Ordnance Factories Service, was unhappy with his appointment which goes back to October 3, 2013. He had written three letters (dated April 29, 2014, August 25, 2014 and October 1, 2014) to the Ministry of Health requesting repatriation to his parent cadre.
[2]The fact of the matter is that the Ministry had indeed forwarded his applications to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT).
[3]The post of CVO in MCI comes under the mandate of DoPT while the appointing authority is the Central Vigilance Commission.
[4]The Ministry had taken a sympathetic view of Mr Jethi’s complaints as to his personal safety when he made a personal representation to senior officers. His request had been forwarded to the DoPT, the Minister stated.
[5]In fact, the previous CVO of the Ministry, Mr Vishwas Mehta, who was in charge of dealing with MCI, had referred a letter from Mr Jethi alleging some misdemeanour on the part of the MCI authorities to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI),

Dr Harsh Vardhan Asks Doctors to Strive for Zero Child Deaths in Hospitals

Dr Harsh Vardhan Asks Doctors to Strive for Zero Child Deaths in Hospitals
Union Health Minister Dr Harsh vardhan ,Today Inspected Capital’s Kalavati saran Children’s Hospital And Asked Doctors To Achieve United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals.
Conscious of the government’s responsibility to reducing the number of maternal and child deaths in accordance with United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDG), Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Health Minister, today asked doctors at the capital’s Kalawati Saran Children’s Hospital to be “zero tolerant” to inefficiency and be pro-active in the execution of their duties.
“The MDG deadline is September 2015 and we are still a long way off. There are many things you all could do to reduce the mortality rate of children. If developed countries can do it, we too should because there is no paucity of money or human resources,” he told the doctors and staff of the hospital.
Health Minister spent close to two hours inspecting every ward and department of the hospital.The Minister noted inconsistencies in the prescriptions written out by the resident doctors. Minister frankly communicated to Dr Atul Murari That “Senior doctors need to train the juniors on the necessity of rational prescribing of drugs.” He even inspected the toilets . Minister patiently heard the problems of the different departmental heads. One of them told him About The Shortage Of Technicians which affects their attention to the surge of patients. Another head of department related that apart from treating children suffering from cancer he has to serve as nodal officer for the hospital’s new building project.
Minister Said That “There should be TV sets constantly playing health education films in the OPD waiting area. This will make the parents of infants and children aware of how to avoid diarrhoea and other simple diseases and reduce the burden of this hospital,” Dr Harsh Vardhan said.
Since 1956, Kalawati Saran Hospital has served as a government facility for tertiary treatment of children. Its present bed strength is 375, but demand is far greater. An expansion programme is under implementation to accommodate 1,000 patients.
Dr Harsh Vardhan was accompanied by the Health Secretary, Mr Lov Verma, and the Director General of Health Services, Dr Jagdish Prasad, and senior officials. This was his fourth inspection of a central government hospital in Delhi since assuming office. Earlier the minister had been to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, All India Institute of Medical Sciences and Safdarjung Hospital.
Reviewing the infrastructure, Dr Harsh Vardhan said the administration should forward all proposals as soon as possible, and the Ministry would ensure that they are expeditiously cleared. He also assured that the vacant posts of doctors and staff, and the faculty at Lady Hardinge Medical College (which is part of Kalawati Saran Hospital) would be filled up soon.
“I will be keen to see improvements in your hospital because it is crucial to our objective of meeting the UN deadline”, Dr Harsh Vardhan said before leaving.
