Woman’s death at Cheluvamba: Doctor suspen ded

Mysore Medical College and Research Institute Director Dr Krishnamurthy has suspend­ed Dr R C Pramila for alleged negligence of duty leading to the death of Roopashree (26) at Cheluvamba Hospital on Friday

Dr Pramila had performed a laparoscopic sterilization surgery on Roopashree who became critical after that and had to be admitted to a private hospital where she breathed her last on Tuesday.

The victim, a resident of Hootagalli was admitted to Cheluvamba Hospital on May 11 and underwent the surgery on May 13. Though women who underwent such a surgery on that day were discharged, Roopashree was not brought out from the op­eration theater for a long time, alleged family members.

The doctors too did not provide any information on her well being. Much later, the doctors came out and said that Roopashree was suffering from severe bleed­ing and her pulse and BP had gone down drastically, they alleged.

Immediately she was shifted to Apollo Hospital in an unconscious condition and the doctors there de­scribed her condition as seri­ous. Later, Roopashree died of cardiac arrest.

She is survived by her husband, C S Umapathi and two sons. Her husband lodged a complaint against the doctors at Cheluvamba hospital at Devaraja police station. The family members even staged a protest de­manding action against doc­tors and sought a compensa­tion of Rs 25 lakh.

Dr Krishnamurthy met the family members of the de­ceased and assured action against the guilty. He said: “During the time of operation some complications had de­veloped and the doctors had to shift Roopashree to Apollo hospital. As of now we have given a compensation of Rs 50,000 to the family mem­bers and they will be given As 2 lakh as compensation through insurance.”
