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

A case of alleged medical negligence was reported at the Aga Khan University Hospital in Karachi on Thursday, when attendants claimed that their patient had died after being administered wrong medical treatment by a trainee doctor.

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.
