‘Reaction to antibiotic injection’
Sarfaraz alleged that on April 23, he and his wife went to Park Hospital in Dundahera village in Gurugram for an abortion. Sarfaraz said, ‘After the miscarriage, the doctors at the hospital gave my wife an antibiotic injection, which caused a reaction in her body. The doctors told us that the reaction is spreading, so the right hand has to be amputated. ‘
‘Hospital is asking for a large amount of money for operation’
Sarfaraz said, “Despite the negligence on the part of the hospital, they are not ready to accept our request and are demanding a huge amount for the operation.” Sarfaraz said, ‘My wife was operated on on 23 April and was discharged on the same day. She has been in a lot of pain since then and the next day on April 24, we again went to the hospital and the doctors changed her medication. The ultrasound of the hand was done on 25 April and later we were referred to RML Hospital in Delhi.
The doctor said – infection has spread, hands will have to be cut
Sarfaraz said that the doctors at RML Hospital told him that his wife’s infection had spread due to the reaction of antibiotic injection. If the operation was done within 6-8 hours, there is no need to cut the hand. But since he arrived at the hospital four days later, he would now have to amputate the hand to stop the infection from spreading.
Husband said – there is no money for the operation
Sarfaraz said that his wife was the sole breadwinner of the family, as he was unemployed himself due to Kovid-19 and had no money to eat. Recently an NGO provided some food items to the family. He also claimed that he no longer had the money for his wife’s operation.
CMO said – no complaint received, will take action
Meanwhile, Gurugram Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Virendra Yadav said, “The Health Department has not received any complaint regarding the case.” Action will be initiated against the hospital as soon as the matter is reported. No one was available for comment from the hospital management.
