Another allegation of medical negligence against CRH Manipal

Gangtok, August 20: A video of a grieving man who allegedly lost his wife claiming that her heart stopped due to an ill administered injection at CRH Manipal. “She was just suffering from a minor case of low blood pressure and was scheduled to discharge this evening,” said the husband in an interview with a reporter.

According to the husband, the woman had been admitted to the ICU on Monday, following a check-up on Sunday when they were asked to come the next morning for uric acid tests. On Monday the patient and party didn’t get to meet any doctor and they were advised to admit her in the ICU since they were told that better care and regular doctor visits would be provided there.

On Wednesday the patient was advised to shift to level 7 as the doctor had said that the woman was 100 per cent, okay and all her parameters were normal. The patient was feeling good, speaking well and tending to her attire as well. The husband maintained that he asked the nurse for discharging but the nurse said that only the doctor had the authority to discharge, the husband missed his chance to ask in the afternoon as he was out to buy medicines, and then after the nurse injected the woman her health started deteriorating and moments after was put on a ventilator and was told to be in a critically final stage.

“She told me she was feeling good and wanted to eat rice; she was doing okay one moment and since she was injected this happened. How can that happen? These people took her away,” alleged the deceased mother-in-law.

“The doctor let me in the ventilator but I couldn’t even go near her or touch her. Then they told me to go out, and I couldn’t even go in or see her, and when I ask, the doctor says it’s her last stage. I can’t understand that the woman who was scheduled to be discharged in the morning was told to be in her last stage,” the husband shared to the reporter as he broke down into tears.

In less than 48 hours, CRH has been blamed for two deaths and more and more citizens have been discussing how irresponsibility of medical institutions and officers could lead to such awful experiences for people who only want themselves or their loved ones to recover.
