An eight-month-old pregnant woman, suffering from pain, was declined for two days by four hospitals and succumbed to exhaustion due to not being admitted on time. After complaining of chest pain, Ambrin’s husband Ejaz took her to Sultania Zanana Hospital where he had to wait for four hours at the gate, after which the guards let him in. However, after a brief examination, the doctor asked Ejaz to take his wife to Hamidia Government Hospital.
A case has come up in Bhopal, the capital of Madhya Pradesh, which has once again exposed the health system. The health system has collapsed during this period of Corona, whose example was seen on Saturday.
In fact, 23-year-old Ambarin began to have severe pain and difficulty in breathing on the morning of 26 May, after which Ejaz approached the Mansi Private Hospital near Aishbagh where he was asked to come at seven in the evening. During this time, Ambrin endured a lot of pain. Later in the evening she reached the hospital where the doctor examined her ECG and gave her pain killers.
But seeing that the pain did not subside, Ijaz took him to the Jaypee Hospital on the same day, but there he was asked to go to another hospital citing symptoms of Covid-19 and advised to be admitted to Indira Gandhi Women and Children Hospital. Aijaz then went to Indira Gandhi Hospital but was not admitted there citing the absence of a doctor.
After circling several places, he reached Sultania Hospital at 12 in the morning of 27 where she was admitted at four in the morning, but after a brief examination, the doctor told him to go to Hamidia Hospital. After this, they reached the Hamidia Hospital via ambulance at around nine in the morning.
Ambrin was admitted to Hamidia Hospital and shifted to the ICU ward and underwent various tests. After seeing the x-ray report, the doctor said that her chest is filled with water and then at one o’clock in the afternoon the family asked to put her on a ventilator. But after three hours, the hospital sent him to the Covid-19 ward.
After a few hours, the nurse told the family that the child had died in the womb, after which the child’s body was given to the family after the operation. At the same time, on 28 May, the hospital declared Ambrin dead after being worried by the family and demanding to see Ambrin.
After suffering for two days and losing his wife and child, Ejaz said, “When we reached Hamidia after facing denials from four hospitals, she was not so serious, both the lives could be saved.” But I lost my wife and child due to the hospital’s negligence.
On this whole incident, the state Health Minister Narottam Mishra said that he is not aware of any such case but if any complaint comes, he will get it investigated.
