SKIMS warns public about fraudsters raising money for patients
Srinagar, Aug 22, KNT: Kashmir’s premier hospital SKIMS has warned people about the fraudsters who raise money in the name of patients.
The management of SKIMS said that it has been brought to its notice that a few fraudsters allegedly raise money for patients by resorting to displaying patient reports of CT scans/PET scans and the like issued by various departments of SKIMS.
“These reports do not in any way convey any endorsement of a fundraiser by SKIMS. Any certificate that is issued by SKIMS certifying the requirements of finances by a patient for his investigations or treatment is always signed by the head of the respective department and countersigned by the Director, SKIMS.”
SKIMS requested the general public to note that SKIMS is not responsible for any fundraisers, genuine or not. “We only issue certificates certifying the need for total finances or recurring treatment of a patient. The certificates are always signed by the Director without exception. [KNT]
