A government hospital of Bhopal alleged in a case of negligence by the hospital authority, left needle inside the body of a pregnant woman after giving her Spinal Anesthesia during her delivery.
The incident occurred at Sultania Zanana Hospital, where the carelessness of the doctors came to light when 23-year old, Rakhi Ganota complained about a pain in her back, after coming back from unconsciousness post surgery.
For few hours, the doctors and the family of the women didn’t pay heed to her complain; it was only after 16 hours, the doctors examined the woman and found needle in her spinal cord and removed it.
“After 16 hours the needle was removed from my daughter-in-law’s body. This is gross negligence by the hospital authority,” said Urmila Ganota, mother-in-law of the woman.
Meanwhile, the hospital superintendent Karan Pepre accepted that it was a case of negligence and assured actions against the one responsible for the incident.
