Indore : An elderly woman patient admitted to MY Hospital, with multiple problems, died allegedly due to medical negligence of a staff nurse, who administered her wrong injection.

He demanded strict action against the accused nurse and filing of a police case. Following his complaint, MY hospital superintendent Dr AD Bhatnagar constituted a committee, comprising comprising Dr Sumit Shukla, Dr ND Punjabi and others, to probe into the charges.

About son of the deceased claiming to have a video confession of the nurse, Dr Bhatnagar said that the hospital was not been provided any such clipping. “If the deceased’s son has the video clip he should produce it, either to me or to the committee setup to look into the case,” he added.
