Girish Maliye industrialist and resident of Chidmabar nagar succumbed to his injuries and died in hospital after he was hit by a tipper early on Thursday near Argan Talav. An cycle enthusiast, Girish as per his regular routine went cycling and a tipper hit him near Argan Talav. He was 47 and is survived by his wife, son and daughter.
The driver of the tipper has been arrested.
Tarun Bharat in a report mentions that Girish died due to lack of timely medical treatment given by the hospital. He was taken to a hospital where he was asked to pay and do registration where he said first give treatment and then formalities would be done. But the hospital did not accept and this and he was shifted to another hospital and inbetween due to loss of blood he died.
The Skandan committee in its report to the supreme Court says that any doctor refusing to treat road accident victims should face disciplinary action as per the norms laid down under the Medical Council of India (MCI) guidelines. The MCI and the Ministry of Health will issue norms to hospitals on admitting accident victims, specifying that those accompanying them should not be detained or asked to pay fees. Hospitals, which don’t comply, could have their licenses revoked. The Supreme court has also issued orders in this regards. So will any action be taken on the private hospitals which refused treatment?
