Not against private hospitals but can’t ignore negligence, says Kejriwal

TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/ Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said his government is not against private hospitals, but can’t maintain silence on their inhuman criminal negligence.

His remarks came in the wake of protest staged on Saturday by the employees of Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh area of north Delhi after the government on Friday cancelled its licence with immediate effect for erroneously declaring a newborn dead.

“Delhi government is not against private hospitals and is fully aware of their importance. But Max hospital left us with no option other than to take action. This is not happened first time. Such kind of erronous act was done by the hospital on many occasions in the past too,” Kejriwal said at a public gathering in west Delhi’s Mundka.

“Our conscience would have pricked us. Had we remained silent on such inhuman criminal negligence? Doctors are saviours and we salute the work they do. Their hard work is admirable. But, if any hospital does wrong with people, we will not spare it and maintain silence. We will take action.”
