Haryana pollution board issues notice to Gurgaon hospitals
Source: Indian Express, Date: August , 2015
The Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) has issued a
notice to hospitals and clinics in Gurgaon to create a ‘garbage stock point’ on
their premises to segregate bio-medical waste from other hospital waste.
According to sources, the notice has been sent to around 50 smaller clinics –
those having less than 25 beds run by single doctors – that failed to follow
HSPCB guidelines. In July, an official said, notices were served to 150
hospital and clinics. While the General Hospital was served a showcause notice,
the others — including big hospitals and renowned clinics — were served final
notices for ignoring norms despite repeated reminders.
