Doctors’ negligence put out girl’s precious life

Sun, Jul 10, 2016, 05:45 PM
Hyderabad, July 10: Ramesh, an uncle of Ramya, who died after battling for life for nine days on Saturday night, said the NIMS was alone responsible for the death of the nine-year-old kid.

Ramesh alleged that NIMS doctors did not touch the baby for four hours and when demanded that they attend and start treatment immediately to save the life of the girl, the former replied like illiterates saying the scanning machine was in the other building, and they cannot operate without it. The doctors simply said they were observing the condition of the patient. The wailing family members narrated their tale of woe to minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav at the Care hospital before the girl's body was shifted to Osmania General Hospital for post-mortem on Sunday.

“Doctors bluntly told us to take the girl to Yashoda hospital if we wanted a better treatment”, Ramesh complained. The family members said the girl would have survived had the doctors at the NIMS started treatment. "She was conscious for two hours after the accident and with no proper medical aid coming from NIMS doctors, she slipped into unconscious and her chances of survival diminished," they added.

It was a heart-rending scene when Ramya's mother Radhika, who is undergoing treatment at Yashoda hospital after being seriously injured in the accident at Banjara Hills-Panjagutta flyover on July 1, was taken in a medical van to Care hospital to have the last sight of her beloved daughter's body. She came to know of the baby's death only this morning. Ramya's grandparents are still in serious condition and undergoing treatment in ICU.

Srinivas Yadav said the government was taking a serious note of the accident in which one of Ramya's uncles Rajesh died on the spot, grandparents and mother seriously injured. "The police have booked a case under section 304(2)(B) which will try the accused for not just an accident but also for criminal negligence as the driver did not hold a license. The police are even trying to book cases on the other five passengers in the car along with the accused, who were all drunk at that time," the minister said.

Expressing his deep condolences to the family, Yadav personally monitored the post-mortem arrangements and assured to order an inquiry into the negligent behavior of doctors at NIMS.
