Indore : Family members of a 3-year-old boy created ruckus in Shri Aurobindo Institute of Medical Sciences (SAIMS) on Friday after his condition deteriorated during the treatment.
The kin claimed that the patient died due to the negligence of the doctors, whereas the hospital staff claimed that the patient very much alive and on ventilator support.
One Anuj Bachania, resident of Musakhedi, was admitted to SAIMS on Wednesday after his conditions started deteriorating during a MRI procedure.
“We had come to the hospital for MRI examination after being referred from ESIC Hospital. Anuj is suffering from epilepsy and the doctors of ESIC Hospital had sent us to SAIMS. My son was healthy before the MRI test was conducted,” Ashok Bhachania, Anuj’s father, said.
He further said that they reached the hospital for MRI on Wednesday and the doctors gave some injections to the patient before going for MRI.
“At the time of examination, electricity fault had taken place twice and then the doctors stared conducting MRI again. Anuj got red marks and pimple all over his body and he got severe fever then doctors admitted him to ICU,” Ashok said.
Father of the patient added that the hospital staff later referred us to ESIC and then again to SAIMS, where he died.
“Hospital staff shifted him on ventilator even after his death,” he added.
Meanwhile, spokesperson of Aurobindo Medical College GS Khanuja said, “The patient had reached the hospital in serious conditions as he is suffering from some mental disorder and has a medical history. We shifted him on ventilator has precautionary measure. The patient is live but his condition is serious.”
He rubbished the allegations and said that no negligence was done during the patient’s treatment. Anuj’s father said that they will lodge a complaint with police and the senior health officials on Saturday.
