Case registered against the doctor and staff after the death of a patient due to negligence in Health Clinic

Jalandhar: Following a patient died after doctors and staff of the community health center of Jalandhar West did not take the vital signs of the person who came for treatment. The police have registered a case under Section 304-A against all the staff members and doctors posted on duty of the Urban Community Health Center. 

    All the accused are absconding. The police station in-charge said that the patient died due to the negligence of the existing doctors and staff of the Urban Community Center. After this, the police registered a case and started raids.

     Due to the death of a patient in the Community Health Center located in Basti Gujan, the relatives created an uproar. It was alleged that their patient died in agony but no one took his essence. 

    Health department officials and police administration reached the spot and calmed down the matter. Satnam Singh, a resident of Basti Mithu, said that his father Sher Singh reached the hospital to take medicine for shoulder pain. He himself drove the scooter to the hospital where he also got his x-ray done. After some time, he got information on the phone that his father's health has deteriorated and he has fallen down. 

    He immediately reached the hospital and saw that his father had fallen at the entrance gate of the hospital. He alleged that none of the doctors on duty took the essence.

   Even the person who was helping the father was accused of threatening him by saying that it was a police matter. They have demanded the police and the district administration to register a case against the hospital doctor and suspend them.

   The family protested outside the hospital for about 5 hours. After a case was registered against the doctors and staff, the relatives of the deceased took up a dharna. 

   Hospital doctor Mahesh Prabhakar has denied the allegations. He said that X-rays were conducted for the examination of the patient after making a prescription and the treatment process was going on. He collapsed after deteriorating health. He died before being shifted to Civil Hospital.
