MP: High Court stays doctors reinstatement in medical negligence case

Indore : The Indore bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court stayed an order reinstating a lady doctor who was suspended on the charge of negligence following the death of an infant at the district hospital here.

A division bench of Justices P K Jaiswal and D K Paliwal stayed the order while hearing a public interest litigation.

“The bench has stayed the June 30 order of the government reinstating Dr Anubha Shrivastava,” said the petitioner Zeeshan Khans lawyer, Shanno Shagufta Khan.

Besides Dr Shrivastava, a nurse, an attendant and a sanitation worker were also suspended. But the doctor was reinstated within a month without waiting for the report of a magisterial probe, the lawyer said.

Sangita Baghel, who lives here, gave birth to a girl on June 3 at the district hospital. Two days later, the newborn was administered a vaccine after which she developed high fever and died on June 6.

The parents alleged that negligence of the hospital staff was responsible for the death. They also alleged that her body was left unattended in the hospital mortuary, and ants were found to have eaten a part of it.

    Ants, rats eat parts of dead bodies the so called mortuaries are nothing but dirty rooms which are not secure, without cold storage. If such incidents happen doctors are easy meat; RMO, MS others are suspended.
