The Abu Dhabi’s Department of Health (DoH) has ordered a hospital in the city to close for a month for alleged violations of several healthcare laws.
“The results from the audit indicated that there were several violations at the hospital which necessitated temporary closure of the health facility for a period of one month and can be renewed for a period not exceeding six months from Thursday (May 2, 2019). This is according to Article 21, paragraph (2) of Federal Law No. 4 of 2015, concerning private health facilities,” the agency said on Instagram.
The department added that all patients admitted at the hospital have been transferred to other health facilities in the emirate ”in a smooth and proper manner to continue receiving better health care services based on their conditions.”
During the closure period, DoH will monitor the health facility and will allow for its reopening once it complies with safety and health laws.
