A bizarre incident was reported from Rajasthan wherein a doctor removed the functional kidney instead of the non-functional one of a patient in Jhunjhunu. As soon as the report surfaced, the Rajasthan government took swift action by cancelling the registration of the hospital with immediate effect. The state government has also initiated the process to cancel the empanelment of the hospital in various government health schemes.

Additional Chief Secretary of the Medical and Health Department, Shubhra Singh, said that a serious case of removal of the left kidney of a female patient instead of the right kidney had come to light at the Dhankar Hospital in Jhunjhunu. Taking the matter seriously, the Medical and Health Department has taken strict action against the hospital. The clinical establishment registration of the hospital has been cancelled with immediate effect.

Hospital to be seized 

Singh further said that action is being taken to cancel the empanelment of the hospital from different schemes of the Rajasthan government. Besides, the action to seize the hospital is also under process, she stated. The Additional Chief Secretary also added that as per the guidelines of the Supreme Court, a five-member investigation team has been formed to probe the matter. 

Doctor performs wrong surgery in Kerala

In a similar kind of incident, a doctor at the Government Medical College Hospital wrongly conducted surgery on the tongue of a 4-year-old girl instead of the procedure intended on her finger in Kerala. The victim girl's family alleged that the wrong surgery came to light when they discovered cotton stuffed in the child's mouth post the surgery, causing further distress. Prompted by this, the family did a closer inspection and found out that the surgery had been performed on her tongue, not on her hand as intended.
