An elderly homeless man who was admitted to the Panadura hospital by the police had allegedly been chucked out by hospital staff yesterday.
The Panadura police, who found the feeble elderly man stranded on the road and suffering from some medical complications, had admitted him to the Panadura hospital two weeks ago.
Police had however heard yesterday that the man had reportedly been moved back on to the road by the hospital authorities despite the wet weather.
When the police intervened again, the hospital staff had taken the patient back into the hospital where he was granted a small space outside the Outdoor Patients Department.
When Daily Mirror attempted to contact the Hospital Directress to inquire about the incident she was not available for comment another female staff member attached to the OPD had rudely refused to comment on the matter saying it is not their problem.
