On Wednesday, a major case of medical negligence was reported against a governmental hospital, Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Civil Hospital, in Haryana. The scam came to highlight after thirty patients who had done their eye operations in the hospital complained of severe eye pain and infection.
They were taken to Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) in Haryana’s Rohtak for further treatment. It is being suspected by a group of doctors of PGIMS that many patients among them who underwent cataract surgeries in the hospital between 27 to March 11 could lose their eyesight due to “mishandled procedure and incorrect medicines”.
The doctors of PGIMS has claimed that their condition is “critical”. Meanwhile, all the eye surgeries of the LNJPN Civil Hospital have been suspended by the Kurukshetra district health authorities. To investigate the case, a team led by Dr. Arshudeen, chief of the Haryana health services, visited the hospital.
Dr. Arshudeen said that samples of medicines, chemicals, roof, and floor of the operation theatre have been taken to find out the cause of the infection. The senior surgeon who executed around100 cataract surgeries is also being questioned.
Many patients were also taken to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh. “Till now 19 patients have been operated…all the patients are doing well on topical and systemic antibiotics. Their vision is gradually improving. None of the patients has complete loss of vision. Eleven patients have been discharged and advised regular follow up,” PGIMER said in a statement.
PGIMER Medical Superintendent, Dr. Manjit said that a group of doctors is assessing the situation and that they will suggest the state government to pay the medical bills of the affected patients.
