With Hospital’ s Negligence A Mother Loses Her Unborn Child
Sad news coming from SMGS Hospital, Shalamar where a woman has lost her unborn child and the family is alleging that they’ve lost their child due to the hospital’s negligence.
While talking to the media a family member said “today morning around 12:30 we arrived at the hospital. The lady is my sister who has arrived from Punjab. Earlier also she has come here for a check-up. Today, she has come for the check-up and during the check-up, the doctor asked her that they have to immediately operate on her, but before the operation, she has to undergo a RAT test. When she went for the test the doctors there told her that they will start the test at 2 pm but they did the test at 2:30 pm and that too when we insisted. After getting the negative report we went to the operation theatre. At the operation theatre, the doctor asked us that first, they have to prepare the file. To complete the file they took around 2 hours. The pulse rate of the unborn child at 12:30 was around 126 and before the operation, they tore the report and again did an ultrasound and that pulse rate was the same. Then they refused to operate and eventually the child died inside the womb. Still, they are not operating. My sister is also in a critical situation.”
