In a shocking incident, a woman admitted at a private nursing home in Kishanganj district of Bihar, who was allegedly declared dead by the hospital authorities on Saturday was found alive. The negligence of the private nursing home has led to the outrage of the patient’s family. The angry family deliberately started protesting and sabotaging the hospital.
The woman was suffering from a heart disease and was shifted to the ICU after her health deteriorated on Saturday. She was undergoing treatment under the supervision of Dr. Asif Reja, as per the reports.
According to the woman’s family, the hospital doctor declared her dead without any medical check-up. Moreover, while questioning the nursing home doctor, he erupted on reporters and threatened media persons and asked them to turn off the camera.
After the incident got reported at the concerned police station, head inspector Shyam Kishore Yadav rushed to the spot along with the team force. Meanwhile, SDO Shahnawaz Ahmad Niji also calmed down the agitated family members on the spot.
The woman died on her way to Purnia where she was being taken for further treatment.
This is not the first time in Bihar wherein an alive patient was declared dead. A similar incident took place in the Khairabad locality, which is under the jurisdiction of the police station in Nalanda where a six-month-old who was declared dead by a doctor woke up while being laid to rest during the funeral.
According to the witnesses, even as the family members were covering the body with soil, someone in the crowd noticed movement and suggested the victim’s father take the baby out of the ground. The baby was soon rushed to the local state-run government hospital where the doctors on duty admitted him to the emergency ward after finding his condition critical. But he survived after proper medical care.
