Gorakhpur tragedy: Doctor who spent from own pocket to save lives sacked


Daijiworld Media Network

Gorakhpur, Aug 13: The 'hero' doctor whose persistent efforts managed to save lives and control the death toll of children in Gorakhpur's Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College has been terminated from his job.

At least 36 children died since August 10 in BRD Medical College due to the lack of oxygen supply. The death toll would have been higher if not for the efforts of Dr Kafeel Khan, the head of the encephalitis ward.

On the night of August 10, the central oxygen pipeline in the college premises started beeping, indicating low supply of the gas. The supply through the emergency cylinders could be maintained for 2 hours. Dr Khan knew that for the critically ill children, uninterrupted oxygen was the only ray of hope.

When the supplier was contacted, the hospital staff was informed that the fresh supplies will be sent only after clearance of their dues.

The hospital authorities immediately started contacting other suppliers, who too refused. However, Dr Khan was not the one to give up.

He along with two other hospital staff drove to his friend's private nursing home and borrowed three oxygen cylinders which extended the supply to half an hour in the central pipeline.

He then directed his junior doctors to keep pumping Ambu bags if the oxygen supply further reduced in the central pipeline.

By then it was 6 am and several children were developing convulsions for want of oxygen.

He then drove again to different nursing homes and managed to collect around 12 oxygen cylinders and made four trips to the hospital to deliver these cylinders.

When he returned to the hospital he was informed that a supplier was ready to deliver cylinders but on cash payment. Dr Khan paid Rs 10,000 from his own pocket and also took care of the delivery expenses.

Dr Khan is being appreciated by many parents and hospital authorities for not giving up and working persistently to bring the situation under control. However, he has been terminated from his services in the hospital on Sunday and replaced by Dr Bhupendra Sharma. He is the second person from the hospital administration to be terminated. The reasons are not yet revealed.

    These innocent angels would definitely have been saved by timely supply of Oxygen by the highest ranking persons in the Health Ministry/Political establishment, had they been born as 'Calves'.

    Unfortunately, there is absolutely no value for children born to poor parents, in U.P.

    The BJP government is responsible for this disaster. If Dr. Kafeel had the authority to sanction and release funds to the suppliers then he is responsible, otherwise, someone else is responsible.

    From the news reports, it seems to be a case of red tape and corruption by the government. The bills of supplier were pending since a long time so it does not look like he is responsible. Doctors should be tasked to handle patients only and not the management of supplies. They should only report about required supplies.

    Who is responsible for the payments of suppliers. How can doctors be blamed for payments. hospital administration and finance department should be held responsible and should be questioned why there was delay or short of funds and they should present any correspondence made to higher authorities who is responsible for issuing of funds. if higher authorities have delayed in issuing of funds they should be sacked not the grass route workers.

    We cannot blame each and everything on doctors. Their focus and specialization is in medical treatment and not on logistics. simple theory to understand.

    If there was no money to pay bills, these management people could have approached bank and take loan. Even if they need 10 crores banks would have given. Hospital itself is a guarantee for the lender.

    There are so many solutions instead of blame game. In Karnataka - Bangalore itself bbmp has put its own office for loan guarantees and raised crores of loans....

    Yogi has been taking march and raising this issue in loksaba on this, but as CM the action he took is not adequate it appears.. Also he must investigate how few docs with questionable credentials, 12 hrs pvt practice, rap*e charges can head depts.? Who stopped oxygen flow only for enceptilitis dept?

    The former head of Gorakhpur-based BRD Medical College Rajeev Mishra, who was suspended after 32 people lost their lives due to alleged disruption in oxygen supply, has said that he had written several letters to top officials requesting the release of funds to be paid to the oxygen cylinder vendor, but there was no prompt action.
    Besides, he also claims that he had forwarded the reminders sent by the vendor for an urgent payment. "I wrote at least three letters to the health department on July 3, 19 and August 1. I had attached reminders from the Lucknow-based vendor in my letters," said Mishra.

    Instead of sacking health ministry, Yogi is busy in suspending doctors and principal !!

    You'd better go back to school and learn some basic biology. All animals (and humans too) inhale air that contains around 21% oxygen, of which around 4% is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood and remaining 17% oxygen along with 4% carbon dioxide which a by product of respiratory process is exhaled. Looks like along with history, biology also being rewritten in our country.

    Humanity still prevails and Dr Kafeel Ahmed is its best example.When senior official of the Uttar Pradesh health department were sleeping in their cosy air conditioned rooms, this young Doctor managed to get six cylinders using his contacts and resources to save many lives.

    The UP government insists that the deaths are unrelated to any oxygen shortage, though they are yet to explain why 23 children died on August 10. The state government consistently denied any lack of oxygen supply and send official Twitter message;

    गोरखपुर के बीआरडी मेडिकल कॉलेज में ऑक्सीजन की कमी से किसी रोगी की मृत्यु नहीं हुई है।
    7:56 AM - 11 Aug 2017
    Apart from the denial CM Adityanath said, “There are many diseases spreading from mosquitoes, including encephalitis. You have heard the news coming in the media on BRD Medical College for the past few days. In this accident, the death of children took place because we are not living a clean life.”

    Faced with outrage at the number of deaths at a Gorakhpur hospital in the last few days, the government of Uttar Pradesh now says that the death of 60 children in five days is not an abnormal figure. “Seven deaths on average per day in this hospital is normal.

    Dr Kafeel who became angel for the dying children has been sacked from his position in order maintain the government version of story to defuse the crisis.

    When UP government can send 'dictate' for Madrasa, why can't they send circular for adequate supply of basic oxygen need and payment held?
    If Yogi version of unhygienic have to be believed, he must have taken personal responsibility of cleaning for 'Swachh bharat' mission which world saw him cleaning already cleaned streets.This is nothing but criminal negligence of the UP government and CM Yogi should take moral responsible for the crisis and resign from his post.
    Is this case not enough to understand the Modi bhakt that Hindu Rashtra they wanted to establish is not for benefit of citizen? Do they need enlightenment from God?

    Situation in Karnataka too is not much different. Live saving drugs are in short supply in Government hospitals. Health Minister has announced recently that government has arranged supply of all essential medicines and doctors giving prescription to outside will be suspended from service. Reports emanating from insiders are shocking and we are floating on a bubble. With dilapidated building, unhygienic operation theaters, lack of infrastructure, non-availability of essential life saving drugs, non functional equipment and shortage of funds makes our government hospitals next behind UP and any thing can happen at anytime. Government is slowly withdrawing from essential service sectors. Education is more or less privatized and the private universities has brought the standards to unspeakable levels. Health care system is gripped by PPP model and government will exit gracefully in the near future. Over a period of time, tax collection and fund management alone will be left under the complete control of government and that domain, being lifeline of democracy, will never be parted to anybody. Welfare measures are reaching people through full front page newspaper advertisements with smiling faces of politicians. Amount spent for paper advertisements alone is enough to revitalize the essential sectors and to meet the need of marginalized people. Embracing this form of democracy in the name of civility is proved to be nothing short of foolishness. Who told democracy is a system to ensure you are delivered always less than what you deserve....?

    The 'truth' will be created easily because our leaders know very well people will blindly believe and follow them. That's their strength. We are in the biggest risk of losing humanity and one or the other way, we all will be victim of that..

    Even if BJP supporters shield Yogi & Co and claim he is innocent then where did this suspension orders to this doctor come from????. If BJP was true, honest and patriotic party then they should have hailed this doctor and appreciated profusely his noble and charitable gesture and promoted him. Now, people you decide who is corrupt, chor and lootbaaz. No wonder people didn't vote them to power for 70 years. They are looting the country as if there is no tomorrow.

    As the real example of a typical RSS/VHP/BJP pink outfitted rule of India, in UP, cow health is the mandate. Human beings, especially the children are not listed in the agenda. Thus, events will be repeating like this.

    Is this not height of corruption, crime and loot on part of Yogi and BJP as a whole????. This is proof that this govt is not interested in innocent children's lives and whoever wanted to save these children at the 11th hour they eliminated them because there was a greater extortion racquet going on for the higher bidder.
