Madhya Pradesh Government hospital denies treatment to pregnant woman over non-payment of fee

Damoh: A pregnant lady was allegedly denied treatment by government hospital staff for not paying Rs.5000 in Damoh’s Tendukheda on Tuesday. The relatives of the pregnant woman claimed that they were asked to leave the hospital when they couldn’t pay the demanded amount.

The areas Sub-Divisional Magistrate, Narayan Singh, said that “Statements of relatives revealed that hospital staff had demanded money. Proper action will be taken.” However, according to hospital staff, proper treatment was accorded to the patient but it was a transfer case and they could only recommend them to another hospital.

Apparently, the woman wanted an abortion in the fourth month of her pregnancy, which the hospital couldn’t provide the services for.

  1. One sided story, distorted facts.. As per the news a 4 month pregnant lady wanted abortion, not delivery.. No hospital can allow abortion of 4 month pregnancy without consultation by at least 2 gynecologists (MTP act). If they were advised to go to higher centre , then what is wrong? Who knows they were not driven by SD? Usually patients come for MTP at 4 months are after SD only.. Kindly verify and publish facts and change the headlines..
