Plea to frame binding critical care guidelines: HC seeks response of hospitals
NEW DELHI: The Delhi high court on Wednesday sought the response of the Delhi government and three private hospitals here on a plea seeking directions to frame binding critical care guidelines for Delhi government-run and private hospitals. The court also asked five doctors of the three private hospitals to file their replies to the petition filed by a woman, whose mother had died of cardiac arrest due to alleged medical negligence. Justice Vibhu Bakhru listed the matter for further hearing on April 23.
The Delhi govt, which was asked by the court to file its response to the petition earlier also, was granted more time to submit its reply. The court was hearing the plea filed by the woman, a neuroscientist in the US, who has prayed for directions to provide basic and advanced critical life support cardiopulmonary resuscitation training to all the doctors and nurses under the Delhi govt's jurisdiction.
