Hyderabad: Congress demands probe into deaths at Chest Hospital
Former Minister and ex-Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir demanded a high-level probe into the deaths of two patients who were allegedly denied oxygen and ventilator support at Chest Hospital
Hyderabad: Former Minister and ex-Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir demanded a high-level probe into the deaths of two patients who were allegedly denied oxygen and ventilator support at Chest Hospital.
Shabbir Ali, in a media statement on Tuesday, said that both the patients have recorded selfie videos explaining their health condition while alleging that they were being neglected by the hospital authorities.
"The patients looked fully conscious and concerned in both the videos although they were recorded a few hours or minutes before their deaths. They have exposed the poor treatment facilities at the Chest Hospital and negligent attitude of the government," he said.
The Congress leader said instead of ordering a probe into the allegations, Health Minister Eatala Rajender has not only given clean chit to the hospital authorities, but found fault with the patients who complained of negligence which later resulted in their deaths.
"Minister Rajender should not behave in such an insensitive and inhuman manner. Why would a patient in critical condition make false allegations against the hospital authorities?", he asked.
