Such a case of medical negligence was recently came to light at Hyderabad’s Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences as the doctors left a pair of artery forceps inside a woman’s stomach during surgery. Artery forceps or clamps are used by surgeons to remove tissues and hold objects during surgery.

 

 

Surprisingly, it remained there for the next three months. Maheswari Choudhary, a 33-year-old resident of Mangalhat, had complained of persistent abdominal pain following which she was readmitted to the hospital.

During a routine check-up, an X-report revealed the truth behind her pain. Soon, she was admitted and was taken in for surgery to remove the surgical tool.

A complaint regarding negligence by the doctors have been filed and in this two doctors have been booked. A Consumer Court is likely to look into the case as well.

Mahadev, a close relative of the Maheshwari, had said:

 

“She was complaining of stomach ache within days of surgery at NIMS. We tried different kinds of medicines but her condition did not improve. This is totally negligent on the part of surgeons because of which she had to suffer.”
