Junior Doctors’ Negligence Kills Patient Ahead of Surgery

A patient bled to death in an operation theatre here at Ranchi because junior doctors did not attend on him after cutting open his stomach as the senior surgeon was away, media reports said Saturday.

Deerju Mistry, 60, had been suffering from intestinal bleeding and doctors at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) cut his abdomen for a surgery.

He died Thursday after no doctors attended to him for more than 12 hours after that, the reports said.

RIMS director N.N. Agrawal said: "A probe has been ordered into the incident. Anyone found guilty will not be spared.

"After cutting open the patient's stomach, the junior doctors waited for the senior surgeon to arrive but he didn't turn up. The patient bled to death after sometime," Agrawal added.
