HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội’s Department of Health has suspended operations of Vĩnh An Đường clinic for further investigation after a series of violations were discovered, local media reported on Tuesday.
The department also temporarily seized all original business licences and documents related to health checkups and treatment at the clinic.
A health department official said an unexpected inspection at the clinic, located on Thanh Xuân District’s Nguyễn Trãi Street, led to the discovery of many drugs with Chinese names, of which several tablets and capsules had no label and did not mention place of origin.
Additionally, inspectors discovered the clinic’s staff was mixing drugs with material of unknown origin.
“This violates the Ministry of Health’s regulation,” the official said.
The clinic also hired an employee of Chinese nationality who had no certificate to package and prepare medicines for patients. — VNS
