Medical clinics detected to have wrongdoings

Health Minister Nguyen Thi Kim Tien and an inspection team from the Ministry's Department of Medical Examination and Treatment August 4 paid an unscheduled visit to medical clinics in Ho Chi Minh City.

The health minister and inspectors dropped by Sai Gon Medical Clinic at 132 Ly Thai To Street in District 10.

The inspection team discovered the clinic’s wrongdoings including nurses having no practicing certificates and practicing registration issued by the city's Department of Health. Though the clinic has medical records, patients’ documents have no address, age, disease diagnosis and treatment.

Health Minister Nguyen Thi Kim Tien asked the clinic to correct the available omissions.

The inspection team also checked A-Au beauty salon located on Thu Khoa Huan Street in District 1. The beauty salon staffs were using new technology that the Ministry of Health has not approved and its advertising document has not been done correctly.

The team asked the clinic to remedy the defects as soon as possible.
