Pakistan: The Sad State of Punjab Hospitals


There is a common perception, based on public experience, that while Pakistan boasts some of the best medical professionals, patients often suffer from complications due to poor quality of care in hospital wards, even in intensive care units.   As per expert opinion, one out of every ten patients in emergency wards usually requires attention in an intensive care unit.

Half a million children are being prescribed the drug every single year, even though there are strict guidelines regarding the painkiller, all of this is coming fresh to us from a new study.
