Health Minister Svatopluk Němeček has called emergency consultations with the heads of Prague hospitals in the wake of another incident when a patient in critical condition was refused admission to a number of institutions. The patient with heart problems was reportedly driven around Prague for two hours before paramedics found a hospital willing to take him in. According to the internet news site novinky.cz the minister is furious over the matter and has threatened that heads would roll once the incident was properly investigated.
