Doctor blamed for homemaker’s death
BANGALORE: A case of medical negligence has been filed against a gynaecologist of St John’s Hospital here by V Damotharan after his 31-year-old homemaker-wife Rani died on Saturday due to complications after undergoing laparoscopy surgery.
In his complaint to Koramangala police, Damotharan, stated that Rani died due to alleged medical negligence of doctors.
But medical superintendent of St John’s Hospital Dr George D’Souza denied any negligence. “We attended to the patient who developed complications. Her case was a serious one, as there was injury to her large intestine. We earnestly attended to all her medical requirements, but unfortunately she died due to complications during treatment. This isn’t medical negligence as we did our best for her,” Dr D’Souza told TOI.
