Nurse in Mysuru private hospital booked for posing as doctor


MYSURU: Nearly seven months after a nurse passed himself off as a physician and prescribed medicines to patients, police have booked him for impersonation and dishonest. The action came on a police criticism filed by the Mysuru taluk health officer, Dr Umesh.

The case dates back to July 23, 2018, when Jameel Pasha went to a personal clinic for remedy. Doctors were not to be had at the time. However, Dinesh, a nurse, posed as a physician and tested Pasha. He additionally wrote a prescription. Again, on September 17, Shrinivasa visited the clinic and used to be “handled” by Dinesh, mentioned VV Puram police.


News of the impersonation soon unfold and an investigation used to be introduced in opposition to Dinesh and the clinic under the Karnataka Private Medical Establishments (KPME) Act. The KPME nodal authority for Mysuru (registration) introduced a probe and submitted a report back to the directorate of health in Bengaluru. The director ordered the Mysuru DHO to sign up a case in opposition to Dinesh.


An FIR has been registered in opposition to Dinesh under sections 416 and 419 of IPC. DHO Dr B Basavaraj mentioned, “He used to be a team of workers nurse. The clinic sacked him long ago. We carried out an investigation and ready a report by accumulating CCTV photos, pay slips,” he mentioned.
