Critical Muslim patient denied treatment at Jammu hospital

Jammu, June 01 (KMS): An elderly Muslim person from district Ramban, in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), who was in critical condition, was not attended by the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMC&H) Jammu, while being brought in the emergency.

The family members said that the doctors in the emergency ward didn’t attend the patient, who was crying in pain due to prolonged prostate ailment. The patient Sher Din, (69), from district Ramban was taken to Super Speciality Hospital Jammu for treatment.

They were asked that prostate surgery is urgently required for the patient and the family members were asked to go to GMC Jammu for further treatment.

“We took our father to GMC Jammu in the emergency ward, where the doctor refused to attend to the patient by saying that surgeries have been stopped. Our father urgently needed prostate surgery and for that doctor had prescribed in the report, which was made nearly six month ago during the treatment in the GMC Jammu,” Shabir Ahmad and Mohammad Shafi said.

They said that their father is very serious and he needs urgent treatment but doctors refused to attend the patient.

“Even we were not even allowed to enter the emergency ward. We were given a rude reply by the doctors, who said that you might go to Health Commissioner Atal Dulloo or Prime Minister Modi for the help but we can’t attend your patient at this time,” they said.

“We are very helpless here and don’t know what to do. Even the Ayushman Card which guarantees Rs 5 lakh free treatment, was not accepted,” they said.
