When patient was at the mercy of electricity
Pattan (Varmul), May 11: Doctors at the sub district hospital here had to run half a kilometer to get electricity restored which went off while they were conducting a gallbladder surgery on a patient, identified as Kulsooma of Khargam.
First, the doctors tried to start the generator only to find it without kerosene. It had developed a snag. At this, the doctors had to run on foot to the PDD office to restore the electricity as the patient was on the verge of death.
According to reports, the operation was resumed after half an hour and it was after the hardwork of Dr Imtiyaz Ahmad Yatoo that the patient was saved. The attendants were all praise for him but furious over the hospital administration.
“This is how our sub district hospital works. How the BMO allowed the operation even after knowing that the generator has now fuel is puzzling,” said Arif Husain, a relative of the patient.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Dr Imtiyaz said it was the duty of the hospital administration to keep the equipments in working condition. “I was asked to go ahead with the operation and I did,” he said.
Incidentally, the local MLA, Ifthikar Hussain Ansari, was holding a meeting of the Rogi Kalyan Smiti at the ITI when the incident occurred.
