- +

The Department of Health Service Support (HSS) and police have launched an investigation into Sunday's blaze at Praram II Hospital that caused the death of a patient who was kept tied to his bed. 

Pol Col Nakarin Sukhonthawit, superintendent of Tha Kham Police Station in Bang Khun Thien district, identified the dead man as Manote Thepsa-nguan, 42.

He was admitted to hospital on Friday evening with a lung infection and was isolated in a room on the fourth floor. His hands and ankles were tied to the bed, apparently because he had tried to hurt himself.
