A month and half after teenager died due to PGI doctors' negligence, parents who lost their only child continue to get false hopes
A family lost its only child due to the carelessness and negligence of the doctors at the region's premier tertiary care institute, PGIMER, and all that the parents have got after over a month and half is a bundle of false hopes. Anupama, a promising teenager who met with an accident on July 17 and subsequently died at the PGI after struggling for life on July 25 owing to alleged delayed treatment and negligence by the doctors and the hospital staff, is now just a picture on the wall.
Tall claims of the PGI Administration, at the time of her death, to bring out the facts to light, are belied if juxtaposed to the present scenario.
Sample this: The four-member internal inquiry committee which was constituted immediately after Anupama's death with a deadline of 48 hours, gave a clean chit to PGI, denying any negligence or delay
in treatment and instead had blamed the overcrowding in the hospital as the reason for the unfortunate incident.
After media uproar and family members' pressure, the PGI administration under acute pressure form all quarters agreed to constitute an external inquiry. Finally, an external probe committee was constituted on August 3 comprising Dr S S Gill, vice-chancellor of Baba Farid University of Health Sciences and a former head of the the Orthopedics Department, PGIMER, who is the chairman of the committee, Prof M C Mishra, head of the department of general surgery and chief of the Trauma Centre, AIIMS, New Delhi, Dr Rajiv Vadera, medical superintendent, Government Multi Specialty Hospital, Sector 16 (GMSH-16), Prof Y K Batra of the Department of Anesthesia, PGIMER, and Dr Vipin Kaushal, deputy medical superintendent, PGIMER, who is the convenor of the committee.
