Editorial The Nation 03-05-14: Fragmentation, not devolution
The Punjab Institute of Cardiology has been slowly degenerating, after
having been devolved to the provincial government. Presently, seven out
of nine operation theaters in PIC are closed for sterilization, and all
nine have been branded unsafe for use. This is alarming, considering the
hospital serves almost the entire province and there are few
alternatives. The bigger problem, outside of hospital administration, is the fragmentation of power and devolution gone wrong.
