Children moved during the burial in Kamalganj, medical negligence!

Kamalganj / Moulvibazar / Correspondent :

It has been alleged that the doctor on duty at Kamalganj Upazila Health Complex in Moulvibazar declared the living child dead after falling into the water.

The incident took place at 9 am on Wednesday (September 22) at Ghoramara village in Adampur union of the upazila.

It is learned that the child was taken to the hospital after falling into the water of the pond. But the doctor on duty saw the child and declared him dead. After taking the child home, the child suddenly started moving while making arrangements for the burial shroud. The child was later taken to Kamalganj Upazila Health Complex. At one stage he was taken to Moulvibazar Sadar Hospital for better treatment and the doctor on duty declared him dead. However, due to the doctor’s misinformation, the living child was declared dead and his family members, including the child, have been harassed for a long time.

The parents expressed their indignation and said that the treatment wasted a lot of time and the child is now dead. Who will take the responsibility for this? There has been a rumor in the minds of the local people including the guardians of the child about the quality of medical services in the hospital.

The locals complained that the child did not get proper treatment in time as the surviving child had to come to the hospital and home twice. That’s why he died.

The child’s father Masuk Mia and uncle Billal Hossain complained that Ashraful, a three-year-old child, fell into a pond near his house at around 9 am. We rescued him and took him to the emergency department of Kamalganj Upazila Health Complex. After the announcement of the dead we took the child home and were seen making sudden movements while arranging for the burial shroud. When the locals said he was alive, I brought him back to Kamalganj Upazila Health Complex. Then the doctor at the hospital did not admit the child but pushed an injection in his body and asked him to take him to Moulvibazar Sadar Hospital. We took the child to Moulvibazar District Sadar Hospital but the doctor on duty there declared him dead.

Kamalganj Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Mahbubul Alam Bhuiyan said, “I am at a meeting in Sylhet.” He is not aware of the issue of declaring a living child dead. He said that he would look into the matter after finding out.
