Mangaluru: Hospital refuses to treat corona-positive pregnant lady, Khader steps in


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Jul 6: A pregnant lady had got herself admitted into a hospital here. During the course of checks, the hospital found that she had coronavirus infection. The hospital was unwilling therefore, to treat her. However, after MLA and former minister, U T Khader, intervened and put efforts, the hospital agreed to admit her for delivery.

The woman in question had got herself admitted into the said hospital for delivery. On Sunday, the doctors got her tested and the result of coronavirus test was positive. Therefore, the hospital authorities refused to handle this case.

The family of the lady brought this to the notice of Khader. The MLA got into touch with some private hospitals but none of them were willing to admit the lady. He then contacted the deputy commissioner of the district.

By then, the management of the hospital which earlier had refused to handle the case, agreed to take care of the lady. By evening, the woman gave birth to a baby, Khader explained.

Khader has urged the district administration to hold meetings of private and government hospital managements to discuss the issue and frame guidelines on the issue of admitting pregnant ladies who test positive for coronavirus. He said that this has become necessary to mitigate the hardships faced by the patients at the last minute.

    Alhamdullila. Leaders like him we need the most! May Allah grant him all the happiness. So many thoughts were running inside my head about this case. Because i myself being a pregnant was so scared.. thinking who is going to take up the cases for those who get positive. He has reduced the tension. May Allah protect all the pregnant ladies from this.

    We need to Name & Shame these Hospitals. In normal times they loot the Public with their inflated bills and exorbitant charges for unwanted tests. In critical times they now refuse to admit / treat the patients. We need to boycott these Hospital’s- strangely the doctors who own & run these Hospital’s are never true to the Hippocrates Oath.

    Very true Bennett sir and Shankar Sir. In this situation also, leaches suck the blood upto the fullest instead of charging nominal prices/avoiding unnecessary tests for common cold and fever because of the rains/rendering services to the needy one. So many years earned profit is not sufficient... ??? May god save ordinary/poor/weak/non influencial people from the clutches of these tentacles... Hearing about the bill only head reels... 🙏🙏
