Alive woman sent for post-mortem in RIMS

An unidentified woman was shifted to the emergency ward of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) after doctors found her in the post mortem section of the hospital.

The woman was mistakenly sent to the postmortem wing of the hospital late on Friday but doctors there found that she was breathing.

She was admitted under Dr Umesh Prasad at the emergency ward but but later succumbed to age-related diseases on Saturday morning.

Director RIMS SK Choudhary said that she was one among the unidentified patients belonging to poor family who are left on the hospital campus by their attendants.

"We generally offer treatment to such patients and handover details to local police to verify the whereabouts but in this case she was probably lying unconscious and was taken for treatment," he said. Choudhary however denied the woman being taken for post mortem before being admitted in the emergency. "We have also asked the deputy superintendent to investigate the matter and find out if she was lying unattended for a long time," he said.

Sources at RIMS however said that the woman was lying on the ramp that is used by trolley man to carry patients on trolley to upper floors. Being old and sick she was unable to move in any direction and probably fell unconscious because of sickness and hunger. Security men at the hospital on being informed by some trolley man arranged for her body to be taken to the morgue in post mortem unit where the attendant Raju Ram noticed that she was still breathing.

"I suspected trace of life in her and asked the trolley man to take her to emergency," said Ram. Had she not been noticed to be alive she would have been kept in the refrigeration unit of the morgue till the time someone turned up to claim the body. source-timesofindia.indiatimes.com
