PESHAWAR: A security guard was examining patients at the Khyber Teaching Hospital in Peshawar according to a notification issued by the hospital director on Tuesday.

The notification asked the chairman and another senior hospital administrator to “submit recommendation why the above officials should not be terminated for incompetence”.
The director asked for the committee to consider termination of one senior medical officer, two service line managers and three nurses who should have been present at the time.
“The services of the following are hereby charge sheeted on account of allowing a security guard to examine the patients, with immediate effect”
