Eldery Man Dies After Being Rejected 36 Times By Hospitals
Eldery Man Dies After Being Rejected 36 Times By Hospitals

A 75 years old Japanese man died after being rejected by 25 hospitals 36 times in a space of 2 hours, some citing lack of beds and doctors to treat him, Japanese officials said.

The pensioner who resides alone in the city of North Tokyo called an ambulance after he experienced breathing problems in January.

 The paramedics rushed to a man’s home but they were turned away 36 times in 25 different local hospitals because there were not free beds or doctors for a man.

 The ambulance eventually made a 20 minute drive to a hospital in neighboring Ibaraki prefecture, but the man was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. The cause of death has not been made public.

One of the paramedics told Jiji Press they had never experienced "a patient being rejected so many times"

Japan is supposedly one of the countries with world class health standards.
