Delhi High Court Directs Hospital to Provide Necessary Medical Facilities

A city hospital affiliated with the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) was asked to provide medical facilities to a 29-year-old daily wageworker by the Delhi high court.

The lad, Nagender Prasad, suffering from renal failure was on hemodialysis for the past three years fell short to make sufficient contribution to make him eligible for the scheme and petitioned for medical assistance.


Justice Rajiv Shakdher of the High Court issued notices to the Union Government, the ESIC and Bhagwati Hospital on the petition. The Court said it required consideration whether the medical facility by an empanelled hospital for an ESIC beneficiary could be stopped midway.

As the petitioner could not generate an income due to his illness, he discontinued his contribution with the ESIC. The petitioner's counsel Ashok Agrawal argued and asked the Court to ascertain if necessary medical facilities could be provided to Nagender at a government-run hospital.

The Court directed Bhagwati Hospital to continue providing the necessary medical facilities as the hospital had stopped providing haemodialysis and other medical facilities since the beginning of the month.
