Hospital converts ICU into storage unit Minister urged to probe wastage of public funds

KUWAIT CITY, June 21: The Administration of Mubarak al- Kabeer Hospital converted the Intensive Care Unit, which is highly equipped at a cost of half a million dinars, to a storage unit for surplus equipment, reports al- Seyassah daily.

Sources from the Ministry of Health criticized what they said was negligence and wastage of public funds, and requested the Minister of Health Dr Ali al- Obeidi to conduct investigation on the incident, as it reflects mismanagement of the health sector in general.

The same sources asked for holding to account individuals responsible for the incident and those in charge of planning for purchase of device and medical equipment. They have requested that specialists be included in the committees responsible for acquisition of hardware to specify the required quantities of equipment needed, so as to reduce the trend of buying in excess.
