Caught on Camera: Haryana hospital peon stitching patients wound, Doctor sitting nearby

Rohtak: In a shocking incident of gross medical negligence, a fourth-grade employee was caught on camera stitching a patient’s wound at Rohtak Civil Hospital. The incident took place on November 10.

Sharing details of the incident, the patient said, “I went to the hospital. The doctor checked me once and did not come to see me after that. I wasn’t offered any painkiller and I was continuously bleeding. Thereafter, a fourth-class employee, a peon, came and started stitching the wound. The doctor was also sitting nearby. I am not sure how well the wound has been stitched since it is still painful. When I consulted another doctor, I was told that the stitches are not right, and he again bandaged me.”

On November 12, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, when asked about the incident, said that his “government has almost doubled the seats of MBBS admissions to tackle the problem of doctors shortage.”

There is a requirement for more doctors. When we came to power in the state in 2014, a total number of 7,500 MBBS admissions took place. The number has doubled to 14,500 this year. However, it takes five to seven years for an individual to become a doctor, so as we get more doctors these difficulties will be resolved. As of now, our situation is better than many states,” Khattar had said.

In August this year, a similar incident was reported in Gujarat’s Baruch Civil Hospital where a sweeper stitched the wounds of a patient.

  1. This is the common practice in almost every government hospital for years because of shortage of doctors.There is only one doctor in the emergency in most of district and sub district hospitals ,who is supposed to provide treatment to emergency patients, prepare medicolegal reports of accidental cases and assault cases, (who only come to government hospital ),reffering the serious cases to higher center , sending police information .. a lot of paperwork besides clinical work , managing the hords of rude attendeds of the patients and a lot more. A delay in treatment means a lot of fury from the crowds. It is not supposed to be a breaking news as shown in the media whose credibility is known to all.

    Such things are common in most of the GOVERNMENT MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITALS, SPECIALLY IN THE AUTONOMOUS MEDICAL COLLEGES , MOST OF THEM ARE LOCAL PRIVATE PRACTICNERS TAKEN JOB AS A FACULTY HAVING ADVANATAGE OF CASTE COMMUNITY, REGION, LANGUAGE AND RELIGION (+ ILLTRAINED MONEY ?). JUST DISAPPEARE TO THEIR NURSE SING HOMES,. HOUSE PETALS.,…..LABO ROTRIES, DIA GHOST IC CENTRES, LEAVING THE RESPONSIBILITIES TO ILLTRAINED,IRRESPONSIBLE INTERNS . ( With new found freedom & money most of them think they are masters of the ring ) . That\’s WORLD\’S HIGHEST NUMBER OF HOSPITAL DESTHS OCCURS IN INDIA & SO ALSO BROUGHT DEAD CASES FOR THROWING AWAY THE PATIENTS FROM HOSPITAL TO ANOTHER. GOLDEN HOUR BECOMES RUSTING IRON HOUR. A SICK TURNS INTO SERIOUS , SERIOUS INTO SENSELESS , SENLESS INTO BREATHLESS, PULSE LESS, B P LESS, WITH NONE AUDIBLE HEART BEATS& BREATH SOUNDS WITH PUPILS DIALATED FIXED NOT RESPONDING LIGHT SENT COOLY INTO MORTUARY OR HAND OVER TO THE RELATIVES. MANY PROBLEMS – ONE SIMPLE SOLUTION, TRANSFER DOCTORS REGULARLY EVERY 2 – 3 YEARS. LIKE IN THE CASE OF MAGISTRATES , JUDGES, POLICE, & D C …… TOTAL BAN ON PRIVATE PRACTICE . NOT TO POST DOMINANT CASTE DOCTORS OF THE AREA / REGION BEYOND 10 % . MUST STAY IN THE HOSPITAL PREMISES . TO ACT IMMEDIATELY TO THE PUBLIC GREVENCES . TO MAKE IT COMPULSORY RFID, CCTV, BIOMETRICS . MOST IMPORTANT TO PUNISH THE HEAD OF THE INSTITUTION LIKE DEAN DIRECTOS PRICIPAL , MEDICAL SUPERINTENDENTS …BEING LAZY, CORRUPT….& NEGLIGENT . NOT TO GIVE ADMISTRATIVE POSTS TO RELATIVES OF THE LAWMAKERS, BABUS, DOMINANT CASTES OF THE REGION.
