Dengue death: Fortis booked for negligence

The father of the seven-year-old Adya, who had died of dengue while undergoing treatment at the Fortis Memorial Research Institute in Gurgaon after a 15-day stay, alleged on Wednesday that the corporate hospital had offered him money to end his campaign against them. "This was the biggest negligence which has apparently taken the life of the patient", the minister added. He said action against it is also being taken.

The state health minister Anil Vij said that the Haryana govt will lodge a police case against the hospital for negligence. The parents of the girl had accused the super-speciality hospital of charging them nearly Rs 16 lakh for 15-day treatment.

"In simple words, it was not a death, it was a murder", Vij alleged at a press conference.

Even though the hospital authorities on Wednesday said that they had not received a copy of the inquiry committee's report, the probe panel has found things that may land the hospital in serious legal trouble. The parents of the girl have also registered their statements before the Committee.

Other violations include a failure to report the case to the Civil Surgeon, as was required under the Epidemic Disease Act, and failure to adhere to the LAMA (leave against medical advice) policy, the channel said. Her condition worsened to "dengue shock syndrome" and she was moved to the ventilator. "Moreover. we have also given a notice for cancellation of blood bank in that hospital", the Haryana minister told reporters. He said that the hospital administration deliberately used expensive medicines rather generic and affordable medicines in treatment of the girl by violating the IMA norms. Apart from this, the hospital has carried out platelets transfusion for 25 times and bill has been overcharged in this practice.

He said the Haryana government has initiated action against the hospital. According to this MoU, the hospital was expected to provide 20% of its beds at cheaper rates to the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), but it has not followed this condition, according to him. "If need be, their lease should be cancelled", he said. Adya was admitted to Fortis on August 31 with severe dengue; she died on September 14. The state government had set up the three-member committee under the chairmanship of the Additional Director General (Health) to probe the matter.
