Indore: Madhya Pradesh Human Rights Commission has taken cognisance in the case of negligence by the doctors of Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital who allegedly discharged a 75-year-old woman without treatment.

Dhamu Bai, resident of Shajapur, was severely injured after coming under an uprooted tree and was referred to MY Hospital on Monday night.

“Instead of admitting the patients to the hospital, the duty doctors gave her primary treatment and asked us to take her to another hospital. We requested the doctors to treat her there only as we are not economically well but the doctors took a sign on a paper and discharged the patient,” the family members told the media.

Staff of the hospital pulled the patient’s stretcher out of the hospital even when a unit of blood was being administered to her.

“When we forced the doctors to admit the patient, they gave us prescriptions of various examinations which were not possible to get done at night,” the family members alleged.

In its notice the Human Rights Commission has asked the hospital superintendent and regional director, health to submit a reply in 10 days with the detailed report.

Meanwhile, superintendent Dr PS Thakur said that they are looking into the matter.
