    North India’s first multiple sclerosis treatment centre at Vimhans

    New Delhi’s first specialised multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment centre was inaugurated by the Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit at Vimhans in the presence of the patients, caregivers and doctors. The MS center at Vimhans would reportedly be North India’s first dedicated MS-care centre where patients will get comprehensive management by a team of experts, including neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, physical and occupational therapists, urologists, and radiologists, all under the same roof.

    Absence of Free Treatment for Poor Patients

    In 2001, Times of India reported that Vimhans was in violation with an agreement by the Delhi Government. The agreement stipulated that the hospital has to provide free treatment to 70 percent of its admitted patients. Vimhans ignored this stipulation, and then stated it would provide free treatment to 40 percent of its admitted patients. The latter promise was neither followed through by the trust operating the hospital.

    Medical Negligence of Female Patient

    In 2005, Vimhans treated a 43-year-old female patient. The patient suffered a partial paralysis and was admitted to the hospital. During the treatment, the hospital staff mistakenly administered a high dose of steroids into the right arm of the patient. The arm immediately began swelling, the doctors advised that it wasn't dangerous. Eventually, the arm had to be amputated. She was transferred to AIIMS.
