New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia ordered a magisterial inquiry on Tuesday, into the alleged refusal by some private hospitals in the national capital to admit a seven-year-old boy suffering from dengue.


The inquiry would go into the refusal by five private hospitals to admit Avinash Rout, whose death was followed by the tragic suicide of his parents, a statement from the Delhi government said.


Sisodia instructed the divisional commissioner of Delhi to depute the local sub-divisional magistrate to conduct the probe and submit a report to the Delhi government within seven days, the statement added.

The director general of health services has already issued show cause notices to five private hospitals of South Delhi – Moolchand Khairati Ram Hospital, Max Superspeciality Hospital in Saket, Akash Arogya Mandir in Malviya Nagar, Saket City Hospital and Irene Hospital in Kalkaji – under the provisions of the Delhi Nursing Homes Registration Act, 1953, it added.

The statement said Sisodia directed it to be ascertained in the probe that when there were specific instructions issued to all hospitals of Delhi — whether government or private — that patients suffering from dengue should not be denied admission in hospitals citing lack of beds, then why and how the treatment was denied to the boy.

The inquiry should cover the responsibility of hospitals, particularly those concerned with admissions and treatment, it added.

The deputy chief minister also directed that the probe should recommend specific remedial actions to prevent recurrence of such tragic incidents.

Smart living is also about smart breathing.

By Himanshu Agarwal

While smart homes are typically about connected and automated devices and appliances, making it a super convenient and comfortable living experience for residents, there is one connection that we often seem to miss when we speak of smart homes -- the inextricable connection with the indoor home environment.

After all, smart living is also about smart breathing. Unless we breathe clean and pure air even within our homes, smart living remains an incomplete aspiration. Therefore, as we pivot big time to a modern lifestyle with nearly 24/7 gadgets, utilities, and network dependency within our homes, a sense of balance with respect to the indoor ambiance must also be attained. And this balance necessarily means breathing pristine, unadulterated pure air even at homes.

Don't forget we breathe 24/7 even when living in smart homes


Of course, in this time and age when we are actively using some smart device or the other within the premises of our smart homes most of the time, the point that we are also breathing 24/7 need not be as labored. However, the question is: whether the quality of the air that we are breathing indoors is commensurate with the aspiration for this so-called quality of life and experience of living in high-class homes. In other words, even as we think we are living the 'high life' using all the fancy gadgets and increasing convenience in life, unless we breathe the right air, the desire and dream of quality living will not find true meaning.
