Delhi: The Delhi Govt issued show-cause notices to 5 private hospitals, Moolchand Khairati Ram and including Max Saket, for their alleged Rejecting to admit a 7-year-old dengue patient who later died in New Delhi.
Reacting to the terrible incident, Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain said the government had issued notices but it was unlikely that their registrations would be cancelled outright.
The government move comes after parents of the boy, who died of suspected dengue after allegedly being refused admission by the private hospitals, committed suicide by jumping from a building in South Delhi’s Lado Sarai.
The couple’s only son, Avinash, died of dengue on September 8 after allegedly being ignored admission by the private hospitals.
Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain said the government had issued notices but it was unlikely that the hospital’s registrations would be cancelled completely.
Reacting to the terrible incident, Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “It is completely unacceptable that some hospitals didn’t accept a patient n he died. Strict action wud be taken against them”.
Satyender Jain said, “The 5 hospitals have come to light and we have issued notices to all of them. We have asked them to specify the reason behind their Rejecting of admission. Govt will do whatever it can, including strict action against Guilty hospitals.”
“If such Case arises that they Pressure the government to cancel their registration, govt will also do it. But it can’t be done on today’s date. Now is the time to fight dengue,” Satyender said.
