CIMS hospitals gets show cause notice, after discrepencies found in audit
Ahemdabad: After finding inconsistencies in the services and charging process, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has issued a show-cause notice to CIMS Hospital Ahmedabad.
According to a recent media report, the private hospital came under the radar of the civic body after discrepancies were found in the billing process and admission of hospital staff. The hospital allegedly admitted non-health staff under the health quota and also served exuberant bills to patients.
It has been alleged that the hospital also wrongly claimed the reimbursement for the treatment of covid-19 patients under the civic body quota. Moreover, the medical records of some of the patients were also found to be missing by the authorities. However, extending its support to the hospital, the Ahmedabad Hospitals and Nursing Homes Association (AHNA) criticized AMC's stand and termed it as "vindictive", "unjustified" and "authoritarian".
