Jamshedpur: Unruly scenes ruled the day at MGM Medical College and Hospital on Wednesday. A group of junior staff of MGM Medical College Hospital created ruckus at the hospital superintendent’s chamber to protest negligence in treatment of a woman whose tubectomy surgery failed.
The situation turned hot after gynaecologist, Dr Shikharani under whose unit the patient was being treated refused to get a dressing done of the patient identified as Rani Patro.
Rani’s husband Suru Patro who is a staff of the medical college hospital had pressed the gynaecologist to get the dressing properly.
Patro (38) pointed out he had got his wife to undergo tubectomy surgery at the medical college hospital in the year 2017.
“We are in a state of shock. A month ago, Rani (32) conceived despite having the sterilisation surgery. After the consultation with the gynaecologists, Rani who is a mother of two children had to undergo tubectomy for the second time after abortion of the conceived child on June 14,” narrated Patro.
Patro said he was upset that the second tubectomy was done, the wound did not heal up. “The wounds failed to heal, I requested the gynaecologist concerned to see if the dressing was done properly. She got angry and she refused to do the dressing. Then only I protested and went over to meet the hospital superintendent, demanding action against Shikharani, ” Patro pointed out.
The staff said four years ago gynaecologist Mridula Shrivastav did a wrong tubectomy surgery and another gynaecologist refused to get the dressing done for the wound caused due a failed sterilisation surgery.
While approaching the superintendent, Patro along with his about 30 supporters raised slogans against the gynaecologist responsible for the negilgence .
Sanjay Prasad, superintendent, MGM Medical College Hospital confirmed about the protest by a section of junior staff over alleged negligence in treatment.
