Delhi: Mob vandalizes Dr Baba saheb Ambedkar hospital after a patient dies

New Delhi: Late Last evening witnessed a mob of around 40 attendants, creating a ruckus and vandalizing the property of Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital, after the death of an RTA patient. The mob is reported to have vandalized large sections of the hospital including the emergency room, the hallway, and even the minor OT.

The case was of one Parvez, age 40 years, who met with a truck accident and was rushed to Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital. The patient is reported to have suffered massive blood loss and was brought to the hospital in a state of shock . Owing to his feeble condition and high blood loss, the patient finally succumbed to his injuries at around 9.30 pm at night. By that time, a crowd of 30-40 attendants had gathered at the hospital. Alleging the doctor’s fault in unable to prevent the blood loss, the crowd began creating ruckus and vandalizing the hospital property. Seeing the crowd in action, the security personnel deployed at the hospital fled. The doctors and medical staff also ran away fearing their security, leaving the mob to its vandalism. Fortunately, no hospital staff was attacked/injured in the process.

    Growing antidocto rmania.

  3. Hospitals are clearly extremely unsafe places to work in nowadays. Those in-charge (senior doctors, administrators, governing bodies, police and politicians) must take serious notice of such incidents, discuss and work-out why they happen, and how they can be prevented.

  4. SOME OF THE GUYS IN THE THE MOB WHO VANDALIZED THE HOSPITAL MUST HAVE BEEN BORN IN THE SAME HOSPITAL OR IN A SIMILAR HOSPITAL. VANDALIZING THE HOSPITAL PROPERTY OR ATTACKING THE MEDICAL PERSONNEL IS LIKE SPITTING ON YOUR OWN MOTHER. GROWING INDISCIPLINE IS THE CAUSE OF ALL SUCH ATTACKS. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD REMEMBER THAT THE DOCTOR OR THE HOSPITAL WILL NOT BENEFIT IN ANY WAY BY DOING WRONG TO THE PATIENT OR GIVING AN UNWANTED OUTCOME. AFTER THE ACCIDENT OCCURED THE PATIENT WOULD HAVE DEFINITELY DIED IF LEFT ON THE ROAD, HAVING BROUGHT TO THE HOSPITAL THE MEDICAL TEAM STRUGGLED AGAINST NATURE TO MAKE HIM SURVIVE. NOT ALL EFFORTS OF DOCTORS WILL BE SUCCESSFUL, BECAUSE THERE IS A LIMIT TO THE MEDICAL SCIENCE. IF ALL THE EFFORTS OF DOCTORS WILL BE SUCCESSFUL, THEN WHY DID INDIRA GANDHI OR ABDUL KALAM DIE INSPITE OF BEING ABLE TO AFFORD FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE MEDICAL CARE IN THE COUNTRY. TO THAT MATTER, EVEN DOCTORS DIE OF ACCIDENTS OR DISEASE. PEOPLE SHOULD LEARN TO RESPECT MEDICAL TEAM THAT HAVE SACRIFICED SO MANY THINGS TO BE ABLE TO GIVE A PROPER MEDICINE FOR YOUR SMALL FEVER OR BIG CANCER.
