The Civil Hospital in the city is in controversy yet again for its functioning. This time the son of a man who had died and was cremated has posted a video asking some tough questions of OSD Civil Hospital Dr MM Prabhakar. The man got a message from the hospital stating that his deceased father was transferred to a COVID-19 facility. Interestingly, the message came almost a fortnight after his father had died.
Sagar Shah in the video said that his father Kishor Shah had died on May 16 at the GCRI hospital in Civil campus. But on May 30, he got a message stating that his father has been transferred from GCRI to the COVID-19 facility on the campus.
“I want to ask Dr Prabhakar who they are transferring when my father has died a fortnight ago . We are already under grief and your hospital sends us such messages,” the youth is heard saying in the video.
Sagar, a resident of Dariapur said that his father had trouble breathing and had been admitted to Civil Hospital . He said they have no clue as to whether his father was COVID-19 positive or not . He said after being admitted, his father’s phone had been taken away and they were informed on May 16 that he had passed away. We were not even told how he died, Sagar said.
