Rama II hospital temporarily closed for turning car park into out-patient building
The Rama II hospital which was accused of refusing to accept for treatment a woman attacked with acid last Friday night has been ordered closed temporarily for turning a car park into an out-patient building without permission.
Health Service Support Department director-general Dr Natthawut Prasertsiripong said Wednesday that the hospital had already been fined for the offence of turning a car park into an out-patient building illegally, but he added that this was not a serious offence.
He said that the hospital had been told to properly renovate the building within 15 days otherwise its operating license might be withdrawn which would result in the hospital being closed down.
Regarding the case of the acid-attacked woman who died while being driven to Bang Mod hospital after being allegedly rejected by the Rama II hospital, Dr Nattawut said the case would be presented to a meeting of the department on Monday.
He added that it was the responsibility of the police to probe into the death of the woman.
