Jamshedpur: A case of recklessness in treating a patient came to light on Sunday when a patient, one Pinki Rajak, complained of acute pain in her stomach owing to an ‘incomplete surgery’.
The woman, who had undergone a surgery for stone in her stomach in February last, was admitted to MGM Hospital where she was advised to go for an ultrasound diagnosis. Her relatives and BJP leaders supporting her alleged that the doctor who had operated her had not removed the stones properly owing to negligence.
The alleged recklessness transpired when the woman suffered from pain and bleeding. District BJP president Dinesh Kumar took the woman to MGM Hospital and complained to the hospital superintendent Dr Ashok Singh over phone. Soon, in the absence of senior doctors, the patient was referred to other hospital.
The BJP leaders put up a protest to oppose the apathy shown to the patient and demanded improvement in the hospital’s functioning.
Later, the BJP president talked to the DC of East Singhbhum Amit Kumar and requested him to get the patient admitted to a private hospital.
Eventually, the patient was taken to Tata Main Hospital. The patient’s kin expressed their inability to bear the expenses of her treatment. The BJP leader assured to help the family in every possible manner.
