Colour coding to prevent theft of medicine in govt institutions

JAMMU: The government is contemplating a new mechanism to check pilferage of medicines from the government health institutions.
This was announced at the introductory meeting of the officers of the health department chaired by the health minister Bali Bhagat.
The meeting was informed that a specific color strip would be embossed on all the medicines supplied to the government health institutions to differentiate the same from the similar medicines available in the market.
The minister called upon the medical fraternity to set new benchmarks to improve the quality of healthcare in the health institutions across the state so that a visible impact is created on the ground.
