CMO strict on the arbitrariness of private hospital in Lucknow, orders for investigation – symbolic picture
The private hospitals of Lucknow live on arbitrariness. Government rules also openly violate the law. The extent is reached when human sensibilities are wired and recovery starts even under the guise of dead bodies of patients. Then somewhere the government machinery comes into action and then comes into action mode and hopes for action. One such case came to the notice of the authorities in Lucknow a few days back. On Thursday, Lucknow CMO has constituted a 2-member committee and ordered an inquiry into the matter. Although action is yet to be taken, but the families of the victims are hopeful that action will be taken against the private hospital.
Even after 5 hours of death, relatives were refusing to take the dead body
Actually the matter is related to AS Health City Hospital and Trauma Center in Nirala Nagar. After the death of a dengue patient here, the health department is also seen coming into action mode after the matter of withholding the dead body for five hours came to the fore. Meanwhile, the CMO office has issued a notice to the hospital. On Thursday, the hospital staff reached the CMO office to record their statement. According to the same CMO Lucknow Dr. Manoj Aggarwal, investigation is being done and if the matter turns out to be true, it will be recommended to close the hospital.

Neeraj 21, a resident of Pratapgarh suffering from dengue, was brought to KGMU on Saturday by the family members. When there was no bed empty, the ambulance driver took the patient to AS Health City Hospital and Trauma Center in return for commission. Describing the critical condition of the patient there, the doctors asked him to put him on the ventilator and asked the family members to deposit the money by handing over a bill of Rs 68 thousand. Meanwhile, the patient died at around 4 pm on Sunday. The doctors refused to give the body as the bill was not paid. Even after about five hours, the hospital operator did not give the body. As the ruckus escalated, the hospital handed over the body to the relatives. Taking the matter seriously, the CMO has formed a two-member inquiry committee. In this, the investigation has been entrusted to Dr. RB Singh and Dr. KD Mishra. After the notice issued by the CMO office, the hospital operator Alok had reached the CMO office to record the statement. Hospital operator Alok Singh argued that the dead body was not stopped. The attendants were adamant for the post-mortem. Because of which the dead body was stopped.
