Hospital denies care to homeless man

The police are investigating the death of a homeless man who was denied appropriate care at the Trnava hospital, daily SME reported.

The city police, who brought the man, Cyril K., to the hospital, sued the physicians who refused to hospitalise him. The homeless man was dehydrated, traumatized, and suffering from psychic problems. However, physicians did not find the problems a strong enough reason to pay more attention to the patient.

Health Minister Rudolf Zajac sent an inspection team to Trnava to investigate the circumstances of the affair.
