Huge cases of negligence are being exposed in Himachal Pradesh hospitals. There was a sudden stir at Chambaghat crematorium in Solan district when the body sent from Maharishi Markandeshwar Medical College Kumarahatti was found by someone else.
Ram’s wife, a corona patient living in the Jaunaji area undergoing treatment at Maharishi Markandeshwar Medical College Kumarhatti, had died two days earlier. The family went to Haridwar only to immerse the ashes of Rama’s wife. According to only Ram’s grandson Jagdeep Thakur, meanwhile, his family received a call from the hospital that
When he opened the PPE kit, he saw that the body of his grandfather was not there. This corpse belonged to someone else. He said that this is gross negligence of the hospital management. If we did not open the PPE kit, we would have cremated another person. The hospital management declared our surviving grandfather dead.
The body of the unidentified person was brought back to the hospital from the crematorium. When the hospital management investigated, it was found that the body was found by someone else. The family expressed a lot of anger against the hospital management.
Dr. Rajan Uppal, CMO of Solan district, said that there has been negligence in the private hospital management. Investigation has found that only Rama, who was said to be deceased, is alive. The other person Dhaniram died. The hospital staff had misdiagnosed the patient slip, due to which it was negligent.
