A FIR has been filed against two doctors for slapping and shouting at a pregnant woman who was taken in for delivery at a government-run hospital in West Bengal.
The woman got admitted in Midnapore Medical College and Hospital for childbirth and the incident happened when she started experiencing labour pain.
The family members and other patients protested outside the hospital and staged a dharna. They raised slogans against the doctors and demanded their arrest. The situation turned tense, forcing the Midnapore police to cordon off the area and bring the situation under control.
A FIR has been filed against the doctor duo by the woman's brother. The woman said, “After I was taken to the labour room, I had tremendous pain. But two doctors slapped and abused me. I started feeling unwell and I was scared and traumatised after the incident.”
The FIR states that his elder sister fell ill after the shocking experience. “Police has promised to take action,” he said. Police have started investigations in the case, but no one has been arrested yet.
Every such incident of filing a FIR indicates the changed times of medical practice and the recalibration that doctors are supposed to do to adjust with the new practicality, including that of labour room.
