Women made to lie on carpets after sterilisation surgery in MP

In a shocking incident, Women at a Madhya Pradesh health centre were allegedly made to lie down on carpets after a sterilisation procedure.

On being inquired about the gross negligence, the officials of the health centre said women were asked to lay down on a carpet as repair work was going on in the hospital ward. “When I inquired about it I was told that the room is being repaired and there were many patients. So they were made to lie down on carpets on floors. They should have given them beds. I have given them strict instructions,” said DN Gautam, Satna CMHO.

An investigation has been ordered in the matter by the state health department citing gross negligence.

“This is inhumane and can’t be tolerated. I have directed officers to conduct an investigation and take strict actions against people responsible. A doctor must always be sensitive. Staff should have been more alert,” said Rustam Singh, Madhya Pradesh Health Minister.

He further added by saying, “We are already introducing and implementing various schemes to aid people but such incidents give a chance to people to complain. The sensitivity towards children and women should be higher. We have recently appointed more than 700 doctors.”
