A man injured in a mishap in Kerala was being denied medical treatment by various hospitals in Kollam and in Thiruvananthapuram. The 30-year-old man from Tamil Nadu struggled between life and death for almost seven hours before he succumbed to his injuries.

The man was taken to at least two private hospitals in an ambulance soon after the mishap in Kerela’s Kollam late last night, police said today. However, as there were no bystanders, the hospitals refused to admit him, they said.

Kollam Police commissioner Ajitha Begum said the ambulance driver’s complaint had been received.Two hospitals in Kollam, including the well-known Medi city, have denied treatment to the patient.

“A case of medical negligence has been registered against them,” the police commissioner said, reported PTI. Though the patient was taken to the Thiruvananthapuram medical college, treatment could not be provided as the emergency room was full, she said.

The seriously injured patient was in the ambulance for nearly seven hours. The ambulance driver said they were informed after nearly two hours that there was no ventilator facility available at the Trivandrum medical college and the patient was sent back.

“This is a wrong precedent. We have got a complaint and we will enquire If private hospitals have refused admission,” she said.

The deceased, Murugan, hailing from Tirunelveli was seriously injured in a motorbike accident at 11 PM Sunday night and died at around 6 AM on Monday.
