In any medico-legal case, be it an accident or a hit-and-run or snake bite, medical staff in government hospitals have to handle patient's relatives wisely and with courtesy, principal secretary (health) Shalini Rajneesh said.

Recently, a three-year-old boy, who died in a hit-and runaccident, was taken to Anekal General Hospital where he was declared brought dead.According to media reports, the hospital refused to provide a hearse van and the father had to ride pillion on a scooter with his son's body.

Issuing a circular on Thursday, Shalini said: "The staff must handle each case meticulously, let the patient's family understand the legal aspects, and give them courage. Taking their assistance, the staff has to report to police and tackle legalities. In case they fail to follow the same, they will be held responsible and action taken against them."
