Yashoda Hospital Secunderabad these days faces a piquant situation with regard to a patient whom it had attended to and helped recover. However, the patient's relatives, according to the hospital authorities, ‘vanished' leaving her behind.
Goli Amruthamma (82) was brought to the hospital from Hanamkonda on March 29 with fever, bed rashes and in a comatose condition. “She was brought by her son Tirupathaiah and the patient seems to have been confined to bed for quite sometime due to health conditions,” Suresh Kumar Reddy, Senior General Manager, Yashoda Hospital.
Amruthamma was put on ventilator for some time and attended to by a team of doctors. “She has recovered and can be discharged or shifted to smaller nursing home, but none of her attendants are available since May 6,” he said.
Neither her sons nor other family members had visited since then and following repeated calls from the hospital, a person said to be her grandson came and demanded the case sheet. “We gave the case sheet but he too left and has not been seen since then,” according to Mr.Reddy.
After repeated calls to the attendants, which went unanswered, the hospital has lodged a complaint with the Market Police Station on Friday.
