Man dies for want of medical care

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Picked up by a Police Control Room van after being hit by an unknown vehicle on Monday night in Jehangirpuri here, a daily-wage worker was shifted from one hospital to another and finally died at Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan Hospital premises on Tuesday morning without getting adequate medical treatment.

The victim, Ram Bhor, was taken to Babu Jagjivan Ram Hospital by a PCR van and was provided basic medical care before the doctors referred him to the Sushruta Trauma Centre stating that there wasn't enough medical facility available to treat the victim. At the trauma centre too medical facilities weren't up to the mark according to the doctors who then referred the victim to JPN Hospital.

Paper work

“Here the victim stayed in the CATS ambulance while his paper work was being completed. Ram Bhor died in the ambulance at 4-30 a.m. before getting any treatment at the hospital and after having been taken to two other medical centres. We have ordered a probe into the matter and a committee has been set up to look into the incident,” said Delhi Health Minister Prof. Kiran Walia.

Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly V.K. Malhotra said he was shocked at the attitude of the government hospitals and how an accident victim had to be taken from one hospital to another without getting proper medical care.
