Fake doctors or quacks as we call them, are a reality in India and there is no denying the fact. While you are bound to be treated inaccurately if you end up consulting one of them, what do you do when you are betrayed by doctors of the highest quality, boasting of a pile of degrees? You don’t have a choice.
Reportedly, in a gut-wrenching incident that took place in Kolkata, a 24-year boy suffered a painful death at one of the city’s reputed hospitals. Reason? Improper treatment and negligence of the hospital. Well, as per reports.
Sanglap Deb, an employee of the Indigo Airlines in Delhi, reported at the AMRI hospitals, Dhakuria, on 15th of July with severe stomach pain and partial liver damage. He was accompanied by his mother throughout and was admitted immediately.
On 18th of July, Sanglap was struck with a similar pain but there was no one to come to his aid despite the boy shouting his hearts out. According to several posts on Facebook, Sanglap was maltreated by the hospital authorities starting from the wrong insertion of the catheter to doctor’s changing their statements overnight.
Sanglap was kept in ventilation for a stretch of 21 days starting from the 19th of July. It is to be noted that Sanglap even asked his father not to sign the bond that comes with ventilation giving them the hint of injustice.
On 8th of August, after putting up a determined fight, Sanglap breathed his last at the hospital with the authorities claiming a multiorgan failure.
Several reports also claim that the patient expired a few days ago but the doctors kept him under ventilation intentionally to scoop out a lump sum amount from the concerned party.
In memory of the brave hero. family and friends of Sanglap will conduct a candlelight march on 10th August 2018 at 5 pm from Jadavpur 8B bus stand to AMRI hospital, Dhakuria in peaceful protest.
However, all of the above information has been extracted from a plethora of posts on social media platforms. But for a fact, AMRI hospitals don’t have a good record on their side and have been held guilty by several patient parties previously. While the truth behind the episode is yet to be revealed, we sincerely hope that justice is served to the innocent.
