A cough medicine dispensed by a government hospital in Bhopal, India had worms and fungus in it. The health department ordered an enquiry on the complaint.
Chief Medical Officer U.N. Khan said there will be an enquiry into the complaint received against state-run J.P. Hospital here.
The complainant, O.P. Sharma, told reporters that he took his ill son for treatment to the J.P. Hospital where he received a cough medicine on a doctor's prescription.
‘An infection of the lungs or upper airway passages can cause a cough and is often triggered by mucus that drains down the back of the throat.’
While taking the medicine, his son noticed worms in the dose, said Sharma who also saw fungus in the phial.
He said he then made a complaint to the medical officer.
