Medical Negligence: UP doctor conducts 42 sterilization operations in two hours

Kushinagar, Nov 14 (ANI): In yet another medical negligence by Uttar Pradesh health department, 42 sterilization operations were conducted in a government owned Primary Health Center in Nebua Naurangia village in Kushinagar, in a record two hours. Not taking any lesson from the recent similar incident in Bilaspur where at least 13 women died post sterilization operation, this hospital carried out the operations amidst gross negligence and un-hygienic environment where post surgery operated women were dumped on the ground, as no beds were available for them. However, Dr Harish Kumar Gautam said that the conditions were hygienic and that patients were provided with mattresses and sheets. According to the report, women started gathering at the PHC since morning but the surgeon came at 3:30 PM and within two hour he conducted 42 operations. Nov 14, 2014
