Bhopal(Madhya Pradesh): In the last six months, the government-run JP hospital has seen three cases of women losing their lives due to alleged medical negligence either during delivery, sterilization or any other medical procedure.
A pregnant woman Chanchal Tiwari died during delivery on the intervening night of Saturday-Sunday at the hospital. Family members created ruckus at the hospital accusing the hospital administration of medical negligence. After the family was informed that the child had died in the womb, the family members claimed that they had repeatedly pleaded the doctors to operate upon the woman and remove the fetus but Dr Shradha Agrawal allegedly did not pay any attention leading to the death of Chanchal.
