That some hospitals in Tianjin fed newborn babies Dumex formula powder to cultivate their dependence on the brand again rings an alarm about doctor's ethics and the borders of business, says an article of the 21st Century Business Herald. Excerpt:
Public hospitals should save people's lives, not be blinded by commercial profit and trade. It is an abuse of power for the nurses of the hospitals in Tianjin to feed babies Dumex formula to gain kickbacks from the company.
In fact, it is a universal phenomenon that some public departments and officials seek commercial profits and powers in China. For example, some local governments require construction crews to use certain brands of building materials because officials' relatives hold shares with a particular company.
Thus, law enforcement agencies and central governments must take action to deal with the public departments' interference with the market with effective supervision and hold the wrongdoers responsible for their actions.
