Doctor community comes together to expose fake news by reporters
• Background of the case:
80 Y/F Patient was admitted at DHS Multispecialty Hospital on Sunday 07th June, around 1 PM in critical condition due to Covid-19. The patient was on a ventilator when shifted from Sola civil hospital and later at night around 1 AM she was succumbed to Covid-19. A total advance amount of 1.5 lakh rupees was taken by the DHS Multispecialty Hospital.

• Allegations by deceased patient's family:
The hospital charged 1.10 lakh rupees and did not return the advance which was submitted before treatment.

• Doctor's defense:
The total cost of treatment was 40k rupees and 1.1 lakh rupees were refunded back out of the advance amount submitted, which can be seen in the bill attached in the images.

I, Dr. Hardik Shah, Director of DHS Hospital want to clarify, "we have been misquoted by media as defaming attempt by relatives showing billed amount as 1.1 lakh which is false and that can be confirmed by checking in the bill showing as refund amount."

Also, after the patient's death, none of her relatives accompanied for last rights. After 4 hours of long discussions in the end at 5 am, hospital staff, night manager and pharmacist, took the body to Crematorium in private ambulance and did last rights.

I am extremely grateful to my colleagues and peers for clearing the air around this gross negligence in reporting.
