Elderly man dies at RML hospital due to shortage of ventilator

Elderly man dies at RML hospital due to shortage of ventilator
Shortage of ventilators at Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital resulted in the death of 62-year-old patient Zafar Ahmed on Monday evening.

Hailing from Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh, Ahmed was admitted to the hospital at a critical state.  Ahmed was undergoing treatment in the hospital since November 19.

According to the sources, situation of Ahmed deteriorated on  Sunday and there was a requirement of him to be put on ventilator. The shortage of ventilators, however, caused the doctors at RML to keep on deferring it. 

Ultimately, a delay in providing life saving ventilators resulted in the death of Zafar Ahmed. Ahmed breathed his last at 5.00 pm on Monday evening.

Shortage of ventilators has been a big challenge at RML. Sources indicate that shortage of ventilators have also resulted in 2-3 deaths of patients earlier at the hospital.
