Kerala CM apologises for medical lapse in Kollam

Covai Post Network

Kochi: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday sought apology from the kin of Murugan of Nagercoil after he died without getting proper medical​ attention the other day.

The hospitals dented admission to Murugan as there was no bystander. This had become a major media discussion.

Pinarayi said it was a shame for the State. It was cruel on part of the hospitals to deny treatment to Murugan who was working as a casual labourer in Kollam, he said, adding that the Government, if needed, would amend laws to prevent recurrence of such incidents.

He was responding to a notice in the Assembly moved by Thirvanchoor Radhakrishnan of the Congress.

Murugan had suffered head injuries when a two-wheeler collided with his. The local people and members of a voluntary outfit TRAC took him to various hospitals where some did not have ventilators free while others insisted on having a relative as bystander.
