Ranchi’s Medanta Hospital Slammed By Jharkhand Government For Medical Negligence
Recently Jharkhand State has found Medanta Hospital’s negligence in kidney transplantation case. The allegation of negligence in the kidney transplantation of patient Rajesh Kumar Paswan in Medanta Hospital Ranchi has been found correct in the departmental investigation. While reviewing complaints in the weekly review program of Jansamvad Kendra on 4th June 2019, Principal Secretary to CM Sunil Kumar Barnwal ordered action against hospital management and returning the entire amount taken for the treatment to the patient.
The family members of Rajesh Kumar Paswan complained in the Jansamvad Kendra that a doctor of Medanta Hospital Ranchi who had transplanted the kidney of the patient was threatening to kill them and asking them to take the case back which was against them in the police station. Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Sunil Kumar Barnwal said that if the doctors are threatening, then they will have to face legal action against them.
Other shocking revelations were made by Hanish Patel he said, “ His father Rasik Lal Patel who got brain stroke on 23rd March 2019 was brought to Medanta Hospital in Ranchi for treatment, he stated that the first aid given to him was not proper. No senior doctor was available at that time and no Neurosurgeon was called to attend the patient.”
He said, “Doctor came to visit on 24th March afternoon to see the patient.” The patient was attended by Neurosurgeon after 12 hours of admitting in the hospital.
On 24th March when I met another Doctor in the evening he stated that “ We were giving instructions over “Whatsapp Group” for the treatment of the patient.”
Thousands of patients die due to medical negligence in hospitals across India, the number steadily rising. Doctors, on the other hand, are ruing the fallen doctor-patient trust which they say is the lowest today.
