Patient says wrong implant was inserted into his hand

Allegations of medical negligence continued to haunt the Government Medical College Hospital with a man filing a police complaint on Sunday, alleging that an implant meant for another patient was mistakenly inserted into his broken hand. The new allegations surfaced just days after a doctor was suspended for allegedly operating on a four-year-old girl’s tongue, instead of surgically removing the child’s sixth finger. An officer from the Medical College police station said an FIR was being lodged regarding the alleged mix-up that took place at the Medical College Hospital on Saturday. “The man has raised suspicions regarding his surgery. A detailed investigation is required to verify the allegations made in the complaint,” the officer told PTI.

The man was admitted to the Government Medical College Hospital for surgery after being referred by the Beach Hospital (Government General Hospital), where he was admitted following a road accident. The treatment error would have been detected on an x-ray taken after the operation.

There was no immediate reaction from the hospital or the state health department on the issue.
