HIV infected woman thrashed by doctors in hospital

An HIV-infected woman was allegedly thrashed by doctors at Gorakhpur medical college hospital for failing to inform them about the infection. According to the sources, the woman, a resident of Basti district, about 200 kilometres from Lucknow, was nine months pregnant and had been admitted to the hospital in a critical condition on Tuesday night. She delivered a healthy child late in the night, sources said. The lady doctors flew in rage after they saw the blood report of the mother and child the next day. Both were HIV infected. They allegedly thrashed the woman for failing to inform them about the infection. The incident triggered panic in the ward and many women patients and their attendants reportedly ran away from there. Senior officials at the medical college, however, feigned ignorance about the incident.
