Boy's death: KMC issues notice to hospital

Expert panel submits report to Health dept

 An expert committee set up to investigate the death of Bupin (7) at Cauvery Hospital in Siddarthanagar Nagar in the city has submitted its report.

Based on a complaint filed by the father of the boy, the Karnataka Medical Council (KMC) has issued a notice to the hospital and sought an explanation from the authorities within the next 15 days.

The committee had been constituted by the Health and Family Welfare department. The five-member team led by Dr B Krishnamurthy, Dean of Mysuru Medical College and Research Institute, has submitted the report to DHO Dr B Basavaraju. The report would be forwarded to the department commissioner.

Bupin, son of Mukesh, a resident of Kushalnagar, had been admitted to the hospital on March 3 as he was suffering from pain in the urinary tract. As the boy died during a surgery in the hospital, his parents lodged a complaint of medical negligence  demanding the intervention of the Health and Family Welfare department.

The DHO had issued two separate notices to the hospital after registering a case under Karnataka Private Medical Establishments Act. Meanwhile, based on a complaint lodged by Mukesh, KMC has issued a notice to the hospital and has sought an explanation from hospital chairman Dr Chandrasekhar and others including Dr Sarala Chandrasekhar, Dr Keshav, Dr R M Aravind, Dr Shivu and Dr Vydyanathan. Alanahalli police have sent samples taken from Bupin’s body to the forensic laboratory for tests.
