Tangmarg SDH refuses surgical treatment to patient

She Was Not Fit To Be Operated Upon: BMO

AAQIB ASHRAF

Srinagar, Nov 14: A patient at the Sub-District Hospital in north Kashmir’s Tangmarg area was asked to “leave” the hospital due to non-functional heating system. The patient had to undergo gallbladder surgery.
 Mehmooda’s family alleged that she was kept in the operation theatre for almost an hour but the doctors later asked her to leave as there was no facility, particularly the functional heating system, to undertake the surgery. “When my mother was taken out, another patient was operated upon in the same OT,” Mehmooda’s son, Basit Shafi, told Greater Kashmir.
 Mahmooda had gone to the hospital to get operated on the date assigned by the hospital administration. “After completing all the formalities and procedures, and even after the patient was kept in the OT for an hour, we were asked to leave,” Shafi alleged. “We came all the way from Pattan to Tangmarg. If the hospital was without facilities, we should have been told earlier and not given the date.”
 The patient also alleged that the hospital authorities advised them to get the operation done from a particular private clinic.
 When contacted the Block Medical Officer Tangmarg, Asif Ahmad Khan, said the patient was not fully fit to be operated upon.
 He denied that anyone from the hospital advised her to go to any private clinic.
