This is the first time Clinical Establishment Act is being used against a hospital in the state. The minister directed the district registering authority with the collector as chairman and DMO as vice chairman to investigate the incident clearly. The health department had conducted an investigation in the situation where allegations were raised that patients were continuously dying due to medical negligence. The action is based on this.

More complaints are being raised against the hospital. Relatives had complained that there was lapse in the treatment of Karthika, who died the other day. Karthika, a differently-abled woman, died during a surgery. The family alleged that the cause of death was the mistake in giving anaesthesia.
