On Thursday 30-10-2014 Girish Maliye an industrialist and a cycling enthusiast was hit by a tipper near Argan Talav Belgaum when he was cycling on his daily route. An ambulance was called and taken to a private hospital where he wasnt admitted as there was no relative to sign the form and hence the ambulance made it to another private hospital where again he was not given timely treatment. Girish’s legs were broken and he was profoundly bleeding and this could have been the cause of his death.
There was chaos this morning at KLE hospital as aggrieved well wishers of Girish broke glasses at the emergency. It was only after their protest that the KLE’s Dr.Prabhakar Kore Hospital issued a written commitment.
With regards to the same the KLE’s Dr.Prabhakar Kore Hospital has issued an “Written Commitment” with its seal saying “There was some delay in admitting a patient and the negligence in the administration with regards to an accident patient Girish Maliye would be thoroughly investigated. The commitment further promises strict action against including administrative and legal action against all the people involved in the episode. The investigation would be completed as soon as possible.”
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 licences revoked. Now an executive order has to be passed to this effect.
So will any action be initiated or will this be just another investigation.
