The Kandy District Health Services Directorate has launched an investigation into an incident of paying nearly Rs.250,000 as three-month salary to a nurse who had left the service without any notice.

The nurse has been working at the Hatharaliyadda Regional Hospital and had gone abroad without reporting for work for about three months.

It was revealed that this nurse had suddenly left for a job in Singapore.

An official of the Kandy District Medical Officer of Health Office said the nurse, who has been transferred from the Teldeniya Hospital to the Hatharaliyadda Hospital, has not informed the management about leaving the job.

The nurse’s salary has been credited to her bank account for about three months after leaving the service and going abroad, it was revealed during an audit.

An investigation has been initiated under the instructions of Kandy District Health Services Director Dr. Senaka Thalagala in this regard.

Statements have been obtained from several members of the staff of Hatharaliyadda Hospital and from a group of officials who are in charge of the documents related to the salary payment of hospitals belonging to the Provincial Council.

It was reported that arrangements are being made to recover the extra amount paid to the nurse.
