“Contrary to this, the hospital provided a basic life support ambulance, which lacked oxygen and other basic facilities. The Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) in Gurugram has been found guilty of “grave negligence, lapse, and unethical and unlawful act” by a committee probing allegations of overcharging in a case related to the death of a seven-year-old girl who died of dengue in September. Also, a notice has been issued to cancel the licence of its blood bank that overcharged for platelets transfusion, which was done 25 times,” said Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Wednesday. The Minister further said that as per rules, the hospital has to provide information about dengue patient to the local civil hospital, but the Fortis hospital did not do this. The parents of the girl apprised the panel that the hospital administration forged their signature on the consent letter,” said the Minister.
