Kolkata police summon Apollo Hospital vice chairman and HR

Kolkata: The city police investigating the alleged extortion and medical negligence by Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals in connection with Sanjay Roy’s death last month has summoned private hospital’s two top officials, including vice-chairperson and HR, to depose before the Phoolbagan police station on the VIP Road.

Sources said the vice-chairperson, whose station is Chennai, has already arrived in the city and is expected to appear before the investigating officers by this afternoon.

Ruby Roy, the widow of Sanjoy Roy, filed an FIR with the Phoolbagan police station, alleging extortion and medical negligence on the part of Apollo Hospital leading to death of her 30-year-old husband.

Sanjoy Roy breathed his last on March 23 at the SSKM Hospital, few hours after being shifted from Apollo hospital, which delayed about five hours to release the patient of accident victim after ensuring deposition of FDs and other fund certificates to clear dues.

The Kolklata police earlier quizzed several medics and hospital staff, including the DGM corporate affairs and the head of HR department.

  1. Corporate hospitals billing and fees are a night mare experience
    I had my 87 year old mother admitted at BGHS hospital Bangalore recently
    The Physicians ans nurses and medical care was world class
    We were discharged at 7 am by doctors
    But it was 11.30 am by the time billing department withmultiple cross checks to avoid letting 1 rupeebeing missed anywhere!!
    Finally i lost it when the cashier instead of accepting my money started calling some department to query a charge
    If for a cash paying patient they took 5 hours imagine plight of poor patients with no money

  2. The situation arising out of sad demise of Sanjay Roy could have been avoided if Kolkata Police had acted sensibly on my petition dated 1/4/2013 against the conduct of high officials of the hospital in connection with my FIR 101/2010 with Phoolbagan PS. I lost my younger brother in the same clinical establishment due to apathy of health care workers. My representation to the Health Department for cancellation of registration of the hospital under WB Clinical Establishment Act, 1950 was not even acknowledged. No body is bothered about the health of a common man. Very soon the drama will end. Thanks to the memory of the public, which is very short.
