Crisis Case: What Happened


A patient named Meenakshi Shelar (who was 9 months pregnant) was diagnosed with Dengue and was admitted to Vashi Fortis after getting shifted twice from 2 hospitals earlier. The platelets count of the patient was way lower than the dangerous level (12000 Platelets). Looking at her condition, it was anticipated to the family that the life of her baby was at risk. The baby died during the treatment, however the patient was saved. The final bill amount was way higher than the one initially estimated by the hospital. This as well as death of the baby created chaos. The matter later on got taken up by Shivsena and they threatened the hospital and did not even pay the bill amount, ultimately taking away the patient from the hospital.
