Ministry regarding an incident of a broken syringe needle found in a thigh of a
five-month old infant. Penang healthdirector Datuk Dr Lailanor Ibrahimsaid the state
Health Department had carried out the initial investigations and was monitoring
the baby's health. “A report has been sent to the Health Ministry,” he said in
a statement here yesterday. A report in a Malay daily on Jan 5 quoted
26-year-old mother Nora-shilla Razak as saying that she found the broken needle
in her baby's thigh after returning home from a clinic in Jalan Perak here. Norashilla
said she suspected something was amiss when her child cried non-stop after
returning from the clinic. “When I removed the cotton placed over the injected
area, I was shocked to see a broken needle in the baby's thigh,” she said.
