Imphal, Sept 25
In an embarrassment to the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), one Medical Diagnostic X-Ray equipment of the Institution has been sealed by a team of Atomic Energy Regularity Board (AERB) after inspection today. 10 other Medical Diagnostic X-Ray equipments have been warned to seal if the RIMS authority failed to procure license for operation within 30 days from today.
The AERB team yesterday paid a surprise visit to 3 private run hospitals which have the Medical Diagnostic X-Ray. Of the three only one run by the Babina Clinic was found following regulations, but two others including the one at Langol View Clinic were warned to seal if they fail to procure license.
“For violation of Rule 3 of the Atomic Energy (Radiation Protection) Rules, 2004 under Section 16 & 17 of the Atomic Energy Act, 1962, This Medical Diagnostic X-Ray facility is sealed till further order”, this was paste at one of the ray room at RIMS which was sealed by the team.
