Doctors’ negligence takes three lives in Sindh hospitals

F.P. Report

SUKKUR: Doctors’ apathy towards their patients at hospitals has no bounds as two women and a man breathed their last due to doctors’ negligence in different Sindh hospitals on Friday. Sons of a woman, who died at a private hospital in Sukkur due to the alleged negligence of doctors, went wild and smashed everything that came in their way to vent their anger.
The woman had been brought to Mustafai Hospital for the treatment of pain in her pancreas. But Dr Mumtaz Channa, who was on duty at that time, prescribed laser operation for the woman, who was in her complete consciousness, to which her sons agreed.
After the laser operation failed to produce the desired results, the doctors shifted her to an emergency, saying she required another operation and demanded bottles of blood for her. And after the blood was arranged, she was again operated upon. After the operation, which lasted for 45 minutes, the doctors left the operation theater and fled.
Seeing this, the woman’s sons lost their temper and resorted to vandalism. However, later Dr Mumtaz was handed over to C-Section police station. A woman breathed her last at Larkana’s Chandika Hospital due to the doctors’ alleged negligence.
26-year-old Mehtab could not survive the treatment she was given by the doctors at the emergency ward where she was brought in a serious condition. Her relatives staged a protest against the doctors who also refused to allow an ambulance to transporting the dead body to Garhi Yaseen.
Later, they arranged a private vehicle to take the body of the woman to their hometown. In another incident a 45-year-old man died due to the negligence of a doctor at a hospital in Nawabshah on Friday. His relatives said they brought Imran to the hospital after he felt chest pain but there was no doctor present on duty in the coronary ward. A dispenser present on the occasion talked to the doctor on phone and jabbed the patient with an injection which resulted into his death. The relatives then staged a protest demanding justice. They said they were later told that the doctors were sitting in Dubai who they could be brought here.
