License Revoked for Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh

"We are upgrading government hospitals and setting up mohalla clinics and polyclinics".

Earlier, talking to reporters, the chief minister said, "In the field of education and health, we are very sensitive".

A day after cancelling its license, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Saturday said Max Hospital in the national capital had become a "habitual offender" and the government had "no option" but to revoke its permit.

The decision to cancel the licence of Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh was "harsh" and "unfair" and it will severely limit patients from accessing treatment, the hospital group on Friday said.

According to the government, indoor patients already admitted in the hospital would be given a choice by the hospital to continue treatment there or be transferred or shifted to another hospital of their choice.

India Lose to Argentina in Semis
Due to deep depression in the Bay of Bengal the city will receive heavy rain in next 48 hours as predicted by the Met department. That followed a period of sustained pressure from India as they tried hard for the equaliser, pushing Argentina deep.

The Delhi government cancelled the licence of the super specialty facility in north-west Delhi with immediate effect for alleged medical negligence including the twins case in which one of the babies was found alive after being declared dead by the doctors. We had received complaints against this hospital even in the past. "Investigation against the doctors concerned or staff is expected, but why should all other departments and the hospital suffer?"

The Minister assured the members of Indian Medical Association (IMA) to review certain controversial provisions in the Clinical Establishment Act 2010.

The baby boy was declared dead by Max Hospital on 30 November and handed over to the parents in a plastic bag, along with his still-born sister. Minutes before the last rites, the family discovered the baby was still breathing and rushed him to a private nursing home. Private hospitals bear 80 per cent of the patient's burden in Delhi.

DMA's president-elect Ashwini Goyal said, "The decision to shut the entire hospital is irrational and autocratic".

Meanwhile, terming the Delhi government order harsh, the Max Hospital said they were not given adequate opportunity to put forth their side of the story. However, the cancellation of licence is too harsh a step.
