Udaipur : Family members of a pregnant woman created ruckus at the district civil hospital in the early hours of Tuesday after the woman died when she was referred to Udaipur for treatment.
Neeta Yadav wife of Shubham was admitted in the government MG hospital on Monday evening. Family members said that she was fine until late night when she went in labour and delivered a baby. Both the mother and child were fine but around 1 am, her condition deteriorated and she started bleeding excessively after the staff removed her uterus due to some complications, family members alleged. The doctor referred the woman to Udaipur due to shortage of blood in the hospital and while the family members had gone to arrange for the ambulance, the staff disconnected the oxygen supply and laid her on a stretcher and sent her downstairs.
The woman could not breathe and died, her relatives claimed. They cried medical negligence on the part of the staff who, they alleged, didn’t wait until the ambulance having proper oxygen cylinder arrived. They protested over the death and created much commotion at the hospital premises. Police was called in to control the situation which remained tensed for some hours. The deceased’s family demanded police complaint to be lodged for medical negligence while the hospital authorities tried to pacify them. A medical board was constituted to conduct an autopsy.
