Man alleges negligence by two Delhi doctors for wife’s death
A native of Guwahati has alleged medical negligence by two doctors of Jaipur Golden Hospital and Navjeevan Hospital in North-west Delhi in connection with the death of his wife.
Anamika Ray, who was an assistant professor of the Gauhati University, had undergone a minimal access surgery (gall bladder) on July 17 at Navjeevan in Pitampura, following which she was shifted to Jaipur Golden Hospital in Rohini, according to her husband Ankuran Dutta.
But on July 19, she suffered several heart attacks within an hour and collapsed at Jaipur Golden, he claimed.
Dutta, in a written complaint to the police, claimed that while doctors stated that his wife did not have an ‘enlarged heart’, it was contrary on the part of the doctors to attribute heart attack during the surgery to be the cause of her death.
Dutta, who furnished several medical documents to support his claims, said that “the report of the echocardiograph says that the heart size of the patient was normal which means it was not enlarged.
“In that case, is it not contrary to what the doctors had attributed to the cause of death and significantly this eco-cardiograph report is not enclosed in the indoor case file of Jaipur Golden hospital. I collected this report from the Cardiology Department on my own,” he said, adding that the medical records and circumstances strongly indicates “gross negligence” by two doctors.
