‘Thrown out’ by hospital staff, ailing girl dies at its doors; premises sealed
A 17-year-old girl died right outside a hospital in Uttar Pradesh`s Mainpuri, allegedly after the staff removed her from there after treating her for two days.
A disturbing video shows the seemingly lifeless girl collapsed over the seat of a motorcycle as a woman accompanying her cries — apparently on realising that the girl is now dead. No hospital staff is around.
The authorities have suspended Radha Swami Hospital`s licence and sealed the premises over the incident in Mainpuri`s Ghiror town on Thursday. Her family said she was given “wrong treatment” at the private hospital.
The clip showed a man and a woman “possibly staff members” going back up the stairs of the hospital. They had apparently brought her outside up to her relatives` motorcycle.
“Tumne bahar nikal ke dal diya patient,” a man is heard saying, accusing them of removing the girl from the hospital even before a vehicle was arranged for her.
UP Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak, who handles the state`s health department, ordered action against the private hospital on Thursday.
“Action will also be taken to cancel the registration of the said hospital and lodge an FIR,” the minister posted on the microblogging site.
