The local government of Mandaluyong City has decided to shut down the clinic where a patient died on Sunday after going through multiple cosmetic surgeries.

Mandaluyong mayor Menchie Abalos and the Department of Health issued a cease and desist order against The Icon Clinic on Shaw Boulevard because of inconsistencies in paperwork.

The establishment was registered under two different companies: The Manage Care and Icon Clinic.

“The Managed Care has a permit for ambulatory surgical service; Icon Clinic does not. We are still investigating why this is the setup and [will] wait for their explanation,” said Mandaluyong public information office chief Jimmy Isidro.

According to a report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, “the permit is very important as it certifies that a certain clinic has enough equipment to allow it to perform surgical operations safely.”

Th clinic will be given 72 hours to respond.

29-year-old Shiryl Saturnino died after undergoing breast revision, liposuction and butt surgery.

Authorities have yet to release the results of the autopsy.
