Three Women Die After Caesarean Section at Government Hospital in Odisha

Three women died five hours after a caesarean section was conducted on them at the VSS Medical College and Hospital in Odisha's Sambalpur district. Doctors at the hospital suspect the death to be due to the reaction of the drugs administered to the women. The hospital administration has temporarily stopped use of medicines supplied by the government in the gynecology ward.

An official said, "After conducting caesarean on nine women on Friday, doctors at the VSS Medical College and Hospital kept them in the observation room before shifting them to the ward within 24 hours. However, three of the women died within five hours of the surgery."

Dr. Lalmohan Nayak, assistant professor of gynecology said, "We had conducted surgery on nine women. The post-surgery condition of the women was all right. But, the condition of three women deteriorated suddenly after taking medicines. After a bout of severe vomiting, they foamed and died. There was no problem with the surgery. The death could be due to the reaction of the drugs administered to them."

Raseswari Panigrahi, ruling Biju Janata Dal MLA, said, "An inquiry is going on and the truth will come out after the inquiry."
