The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Thursday issued notice to the state government over the death of a patient in Bijnor district, due to the “unavailability” of oxygen in the ambulance.
The notice was issued after taking suo motu cognizance of media reports regarding the death of asthma patient in Chandpur area because the oxygen cylinder in the ambulance was empty. Relatives of the patient had reportedly protested, and the Chief Medical Officer had promised a probe into the matter.
“Taking a serious view of the alleged medical negligence, the Commission has issued a notice to the government of Uttar Pradesh through its secretary, Department of Medical Health & Family Welfare, calling for a report within four weeks,” said an NHRC spokesperson.
