Nurse relieved from duty as family alleges negligence

Jalandhar, May 6

A staff nurse of the Sub Divisional Hospital, Phagwara, has been relieved from her duty, after family members of a patient alleged negligence on her part. On the directions of Kapurthala Civil Surgeon, Dr Parminder Kaur, the staff nurse has been moved to the community health centre, Panchat.

In a complaint to SMO Kamal Kishore, husband (Balveer Singh) of deceased Jasvir Kaur (57) alleged: “After condition of my wife deteriorated, she was taken to a private hospital in Phagwara, from where she was referred to the Phagwara Civil Hospital (Sub Divisional Hospital). The staff nurse used foul language with us and did not listen to us for 10 minutes. After the intervention of the SMO, she put the patient on oxygen, who died soon after.”

Tomas Sethi, kin of Jasvir, said: “She refused to entertain us for around 10 minutes saying the SMO is unnecessarily sending patients to them. Then we called the SMO. We checked on the patient again and saw no oxygen supply was given to her. Later, an injection and oxygen was given to the patient, but it was too late.” — TNS
