SFI blames doctors for death of 2-year-old baby

Demands suspension of doctor at Sadali hospital

Members of Students Federation of India (SFI), Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) workers Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) and Karnataka Prantha Raitha Sangha on Friday evening demanded that doctors responsible for the death of two-year-old baby girl be suspended.

They staged a protest in front of Zilla Department of Health and Family Welfare’s office and urged that the baby’s family be compensated.

The protesters have held the doctors and other staff at Sadali hospital in Shidlaghatta as responsible for the death of couple Gayatri and Venkatareddy’s new born
Talking to reporters, SFI district unit president Munindra said: “Gayatri and Venkatareddy, both who work as daily wage workers, brought their new-born daughter to Sadali hospital in the taluk on Thursday. After a doctor gave the two-year-old an injection, she took ill.

Though the other doctors were informed about it, they refused to act. As a result, the child died at 9 am on Friday.”

It is horrifying that there were no doctors and other staff members at the hospital when the incident happened, he added.

He urged the Department of Health and Family Welfare officers and deputy commissioner to take stringent action against the negligent doctors and the staff.
