Authorities have ordered probe into the death of a woman due to alleged medical negligence at sub district hospital Kangan.

The family members of deceased Fareeda Bano (36) wife of Abdul Jaleel of Hillpati Gund Kangan alleged that she died due negligence of doctors and the paramedical staff at the SDH Kangan.

The family alleged that she was left unattended by the paramedical staff after she had been operated at 3 pm on Thursday in the hospital.

They alleged that the doctors after conducting surgical sterilization of Fareeda remained unavailable in the hospital and did not take adequate care of the patient  according to schedule from Thursday night to Friday noon “due to which she developed unbearable pain and her condition deteriorated.”

They said she was referred to SKIMS Soura Friday noon where she died “hours after she was operated at SDH Kangan.”

The family members and relatives of the deceased have demanded stern action against the paramedical staff and doctors at SDH for their negligence.

Yasmina Kangoo, superintendent sub-district hospital Kangan denied the allegations of negligence on the part of the paramedical staff or the doctors.

"There was no negligence from medical staff. The patient was referred to SKIMS for specialised treatment by the hospital ambulance only after doctors on duty suggested so."

Meanwhile, Mehraj-ud-din Shah SDM Kangan told Greater Kashmir on Saturday that he “has raised the issue with the CMO Ganderbal and he has assured enquiry into the matter.”
