Hours after a video that showed a Gynecologist and an Anesthetist fighting with each other in very unprofessional manner inside Operation Theatre, Rajasthan Government Health department released a press note that both the doctors involved in the Fight are suspended but there is no loss of life in the incidence.
Earlier nearly all mainstream media reported that the newborn died in the incident. Hindustan times and nearly all print and electronic media reported that the Newborn girl of patient Anita who was in the operating theatre for a C-section died after birth.
Gynecologist Ashok Nainwal and Anaesthetist Mathura Lal Tak were seen shouting at each other in the cell phone clip shot by the nursing staff of Umaid Hospital.
The high court took suo motu cognizance of the case after the video was extensively shared. It ordered the district collector to include the Jodhpur metropolitan chief judicial magistrate in the inquiry committee formed by the state government. The court asked for a report by September 4.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Government released a press note that both the Doctors are suspended and an inquiry initiated but there is no loss of life as reported by media. A true copy of the press note.
Mean while doctors community are passing a joke on social media that High courts never take Suo moto cognizance when Doctors are assaulted. The doctors in question did wrong but they were actually fighting for patient safety only. Any death leads to assaulting mob attack on doctors only. We hope high court will also take similar action on doctors safety. Said, senior consulting doctor of Jaipur.
