Jaslok Hospital advises doctors against prescribing Ranbaxy drugs

Mumbai: Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, Mumbai has reportedly put up a notice at the receptionist’s circular desk advising its doctors to avoid prescribing drugs manufactured by Ranbaxy Laboratories.

The notice doesn’t give any reason, but merely states that Ranbaxy medicines won’t be available at the hospital and doctors should, as far as possible, not prescribe these drugs, according to a senior doctor who consults at Jaslok.

The move follows Ranbaxy Laboratories recently agreeing to pay a $500-million penalty to US authorities for “selling adulterated drugs” in the American market. It is not known whether the two are linked, reports ToI.

    Too little, too late.
    There should have been an instant total ban on Ranbaxy drugs all over the country.
    Their old man must be turning in his grave and wondering–So much money, yet so much greed !
