In another instance of attack on medical practitioners, a doctor, S K Verma, at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital (Coronation hospital) was beaten up with slippers by the relatives of a patient who died of a heart attack on Monday. The relatives of the patient, Rajesh Kumar (48), who was a resident of Shahid Rajesh Rawat Colony, alleged that a wrong injection was given because of which the patient suffered a heart attack and died.
Following the incident, the hospital administration has decided to keep the hospital shut until the culprits are nabbed. Patients had a difficult time after the hospital was shut down.
Wife of the patient, Asha Devi, alleged, “My husband complaint of pain in the left shoulder and arm and went to the Coronation hospital OPD at around 10 am. Doctor prescribed some painkiller injection to him and upon reaching home he started sweating heavily and died on the spot. This is sheer medical negligence.”
