The fact that NMMC hospital does not have a proper treatment facility or room to accommodate a dying person with TB gets many questions. When contacted, authorities stated that they don’t have proper facility to accommodate such a severe TB patient patient. Human Welfare Association has decided to file a complaint toNMMC, CIDCO M.D. and hospitals denied room for patient.

Ragunathan Nair, president of Human Welfare Association, said “with a dying patient we were running from hospitals to hospitals just to rescue one life even that in midnight. But experience from the hospital has put us to file a complaint against the problem. Reji Thomas, a Panvel resident provided his to rescue this person. Panvel police also tried to help our mission. we want authorities to make such emergency arrangements for TB patients in NMMC hospital. NMMC hospital is a common mans hospital from Mankurd to panvel and all navi mumbai.”

Doctors from NMMC hospital also said “he was in dangerous condition of TB and potentially infectious.”
