A female patient admitted to the KIST Hospital in Gwarko, Lalitpur, died after falling from the first floor while using a bathroom on Saturday morning. Police said Lalita Khadka, 81, of Dolakha died after she crashed on the ground after slipping into a big hole in an under-construction bathroom lying adjacent to the common ward of the hospital. Khadka was
admitted to the hospital on Friday. Metropolitan Police Range in Lalitpur said the hospital should be responsible for such incident. DSP Pawan Giri, spokesperson of the Range, said the hospital should have locked the room if it was under-construction in the first place. He said according to witness, the hospital delayed its rescue measures.
Ganga Bahadur Khadka, relative of the deceased, said the hospital has been claiming it to be minor incident and denying any compensation to the family. No one was available for comments from the hospital side.
