Bengaluru: The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials on Saturday, October 31 said that they have decided to take exemplary action against seven hospitals in the city for violations of its directions for reserving 50 per cent of beds in each category for government referred patients in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, .

Under the Karnataka Private Medical Establishments (KPME) Act, the BBMP has issued show-cause notices to the seven hospitals seeking a response on the matter, failing which their licenses shall be suspended invoking Section 15 of the KPME Act.

If no proper explanation is received within 24 hours along with compliance of reserving 50 per cent beds for BBMP sponsored COVID patients, the BBMP will be constrained to close down the OPDs at the first instance and thereafter all the existing patients admitted in these hospitals will be shifted to some other alternate hospitals and subsequently, these hospitals will be closed down.

The show-cause notices were issued to Artyem Hospital, Rangadorai Memorial Hospital, Sanjeevini Hospital, GVG Healthcare Pvt Ltd, Srinivas Hospital, Medstar Hospital, and Nandana Healthcare Services India Ltd.
