Youth's health deteriorates following 'wrong' medical treatment in Nagaon
Alleging wrong treatment to a patient by a physician
Patient's family and relatives go on a rampage, case filed against doctor
NAGAON: Alleging wrong treatment to a patient by a physician, the family members, relatives and other neighbours of the patient hailing from Nagaon Gomariati village, went on a rampage and vandalized the hospital on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the irate mob staged a protest against the physician concerned at the Nagaon Haiborgaon-based GD Nursing Home and Research Center and demanded immediate arrest of the physician. Significantly, witnessing the anger of the protesters, the physician finally had to flee from the hospital, sources added.
Sources claimed that the physician of the hospital, Dr Gopal Roy conducted a surgery on a youth to remove his appendix a few days back as he was suffering from pain in his stomach. But when he felt the same pain right after the surgery, the family of the patient was advised to admit him in Nagaon PB Civil Hospital.
The doctors of Nagaon Civil Hospital carried out various medical tests in the hospital and it was found that no surgery was done in GD Nursing Home and Research Center. The family members of the youth immediately contracted Dr Gopal Roy and asked why he misled them in this way. Dr Roy said that he would conduct the operation to the youth and they immediately agreed to his proposal.
Subsequently, Dr Roy carried out an operation in this regard at Nagaon GD Nursing Home and Research Center, Haiborgaon a fortnight ago. Following the operation, the health of the youth deteriorated and the family members of the patient shifted him to Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) where he was still undergoing treatment in the Intensive Care Unit, sources said. When they came to know from the doctors of GMCH that he was struggling for his life due to the alleged wrong treatment initiated by Dr Roy, the family members, relatives as well as other neighbours of the patient went on a rampage on Wednesday morning, sources added further.
Interestingly, the physician Dr Roy allegedly admitted his fault and assured the victim's family to bear all medical expenses of the youth. But the family of the youth did not accept his offer and went on a rampage and staged a protest against the physician. Besides demanding immediate arrest of the physician, they filed a case in Nagaon PS in this regard, sources said further.
