GYNAECOLOGIST GOES ON CASUAL LEAVE, PATIENT DIES IN HOSPITAL!

In a pathetic incident a young would-be mother died only because the Gynaecologist who was supposed to conduct delivery of her infant had gone on two days casual leave without informing the patient or her relatives and anybody in the hospital. Sources in the BMS hospital in Kamalpur said that Anjana Deb (25), wife of Chranjit Deb of Baligaon hospital, had been under the treatment of Gynaecologist Dr Sukanta Bhuiyan ever since she had conceived a child. The doctor got Anjana admitted to BMS hospital on last February 21, Thursday and the delivery was scheduled to happen on Friday morning . 

But on that crucial morning Dr Sukanta Bhuiyan was missing as he had gone on two days casual leave without handing over charge to any other doctor. Having no other alternative the nurses in the hospital performed the delivery duty but the baby died shortly after coming out . This triggered tension as a large number of people had rushed to BMS hospital but the guilty and callous doctor Sukanta Bhuyan was not found . Earlier he had been responsible for the death of one woman and two other babies. The subdivisional medical officer (SDMO) Dr Anjan Das admitted the incident and expressed his regret , saying he would bring the matter to the knowledge of higher authority.
