Ganga Ram Hospital accused of declaring alive patient Dead

Delhi: In a severe allegation against a premier multi-speciality hospital in the city, a patient’s family alleged that the man declared dead by doctors was later found ‘alive’ by them, while he was being taken for last rites in an ambulance.

According to a recent report by ANI, a 60-year-old “deceased” patient was being taken for the last rites when the family claimed that they found him ‘sweating’ . They soon informed the doctor about the condition who confirmed that he was alive.

Blaming the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, the family accused the doctors of medical ‘negligence’.

However, the hospital has denied the allegations saying that the patient was discharged and was not declared dead by anyone.

“Patients’ condition is critical & he needs further treatment. Patients’ attendants want to discharge patient, hence, he is being discharged on Leave Against Medical Advice (LAMA),” read the discharge certificate of the patient.

    It is unfortunate whether patient attendant failed to understand doctors advice or hospital failed to make it clear the latest condition of patient to attendants.

    In either case it is fault of hospital who failed to counsel the patient attendants about medical condition of patient.

    Because no matter how stupid one could be, but a family attending members are the best well wisher of a sick family member and don\’t have nerve to burn a dear one alive, had they known the fact.

    Poor discharge Counselling is at fault.

  3. Absolutely wrong views of u regarding hospital. If attendants want to take their patient against medical advice, not thinking of patients poor condition, dn y the hospital will hold them. The attendants hardly listen to counselling

    Absolutely true . This has become the habits of attendants to blame doctors & hospital for everything.
    Hospital can\’t make this type of mistakes.
