A pregnant woman, who was suffering from fever, died at Faridabad’s Asian Hospital on January 11.
The Hospital administration handed over a bill of Rs 18 Lakh to her family for a 22-days treatment.
According to uncle,”She had fever but was shifted to ICU. They said she has typhoid & later said she has a perforated intestine. They asked us to submit Rs 3 Lakh for operation & said it’ll be done once the entire amount is submitted. We submitted Rs 10-12 Lakh so far. They asked for Rs 18 Lakh.”
However, Relatives demanded an investigation against hospital administration.
