PARENTS of a four-year-old girl, who died after being admitted to a hospital in Klang on Monday, were shocked when a doctor allegedly claimed she was already dead on arrival, Makkal Osai reported.
P. Premsri said she had taken her daughter, who had fever, to the hospital a few days before she died but doctors told them it wasn’t serious.
On March 20, she said, they were advised by a private clinic to get her daughter admitted again because she was still unwell.
Premsri said her daughter was still alert when admitted during their second visit to the hospital. But after being told to wait while her daughter received treatment, she and her husband were stunned when a doctor told them the girl was already dead even before they reached the hospital.
The parents claimed their daughter would still be alive if the girl had received proper treatment earlier and are considering legal action against the hospital.

SPB, as he is fondly known, has sung tens of thousands of songs in his long career, many of them by the composer.
The legal notice was reportedly sent by Ilaiyaraaja’s lawyers to SPB and another famous singer, Chitra. They are currently on a world tour.
