In June, a shocking incident of medical apathy, a 60-yr-old man from Haryana's Panipat, who was declared dead by doctors at Delhi's Ganga Ram hospital, was later found alive while being taken for last rites in an ambulance. Relatives of the man accused the doctors of negligence in performing their duty. According to relatives, they informed the doctors after they found that the man was sweating, then the doctors declared him alive. In the same month, a lady patient with a broken leg was dragged with the help of a bed sheet by her relatives, allegedly due to unavailability of a stretcher at a government hospital in Maharashtra's Nanded.
