Legal cases with fixed pricing, standardized processes, and firm timelines
A government hospital in UP denied to treat a 11-year-old boy suffering from fever, because his family failed to bribe the doctor with INR 5000, which resulted into his death. Pushpraj Singh Yadav, Uncle of the unfortunate kid, Vinod claimed that the doctor-in-charge of OPD demanded bribe of INR 5000. When he failed to pay this amount, he was told to shift his nephew to some other hospital. He carried his nephew on his lap to the district hospital where he dies while he was waiting for a slip to be made. He carried Vinod’s dead body to District Magistrate Divya Prakash Giri and lodged a complaint against the doctors.
City Magistrate Ramesh Tiwari and Deputy CMO MP Pal, are been asked to look into the matter and submit the report for the purpose of further action to be taken. Dr. Bijendra Nath, the principal of the medical college defended the accusation claiming that since the condition of the boy was really bad, so the doctors asked to take the patient to other hospital for treatment, and refused that there has been any incident of asking bribe.
