Gynaecologist Slapped for Recommending Caesarean instead of Normal Delivery


Gynaecologist Slapped for Recommending Caesarean instead of Normal Delivery

Rajasthan: A gynaecologist working with the Sawai Madhopur district hospital recently became a recipient of physical abuse from an attendant of a pregnant patient, after the doctor suggested that the patient has to undergo a caesarean delivery whereas  the attendant kept on insisting the doctors to perform normal delivery.

The incident happened after the doctor informed the female attendant of the patient, that the patient who was in the Operation theatre would have to undergo a caesarean. This did not go well with the said attendant who started fighting that the doctor have to perform a normal delivery. With the altercation reaching heights, the doctor moved outside the operation theatre, when the woman chased him and slapped him. TOI reports that the hospital administration called the police to calm down the situation

“The position of the baby in the womb was not normal. So, the doctor told her attendant that it will not be a normal delivery. They have to perform caesarean delivery. But, the attendant wanted that the doctor should perform normal delivery. After altercation, the doctor moved out of operation theatre and she followed him and hit him that broke her bangles too,” Dr Umesh Sharma, principal medical officer, district hospital, Sawai Madhopur informed TOI

No case has been filed. The attendant signed consent form for allowing doctors to perform caesarean delivery,” Nemichand, station house officer, Kotwali said to the daily.

  1. THE WAY DOCTORS ARE VILIFIED EVEN WELL MEANING ADVICE & TREATMENT IF GOES NOT TO THE PATIENT / ATTENDANTS SATISFACTION WILL / MAY LEAD TO MORE VIOLENT REACTION & THIS TREATMENT WILL FEEL MINOR IN THE FUTURE

  2. It is wrong to slap a Doctor.Law must not be taken into ones own hands, and at the end of the day the attendant signed a consent for a Cesarean.So attendant is faulty

    Most of the doctors become commercial, instead of service. If there aim is only for service,there is a way. They should think of patients condition after spinal anesthesia.
    In order to control these type of practices, govt should make compulsory normal delivery minimum 15-20./ month.
    If unable to do quiet practice,again go for examination in obs and gynecology.

  4. Guess u did not read it properly. Baby position was not normal. So c-section.. Guess u shud study Mbbs again

  5. Where from have you taken your medical education? Are you a real doctor or a quack? A real doctor will make such a comment only if he is totally out of his mind.

  6. Are u a genuine qualified gynaec or a quack ….such a comment is not at all expected from a doc

  7. That\’s true the commercialisation is bad but only gynecologist\’s know when normal delivery is dangerous for new born or the mother. How can govt know patient can undergo normal delivery safely?

  8. It seems you treat all your patients for free because you believe in serving the mankind.
