Family claims ‘medical negligence’ caused patient’s death, AKU vows probe

The issue surfaced on Friday after a video went viral on social media in which the son of the deceased patient is seen complaining about the alleged negligence of the AKU hospital staff which reportedly resulted in the death of his father.

Following the alleged negligence, the hospital administration was compelled to issue a statement in which it expressed condolences with the bereaved family.

However, the hospital claimed that the family had resorted to violent behaviour towards the hospital staff and administration.

Moreover, the AKU hospital management has said that it will investigate the incidence of alleged medical negligence.
