IMPHAL, December 6: The Keirao Kendra Minority Muslim Development Organization (KKMMDO) has set a seven-day deadline to the concern authorities for taking up actions against ENT doctor, Sudhir Ranjan for his negligence to a patient Md Sahid, 14, son of Md Sahidur of Urup-pat Mayai Leikai. It warned that if the concerned authority failed to take action after the expiry of the deadline, legal notice will be served to the doctor.
It was stated at a press conference jointly called by the family of the patient and KKMMDO at Manipur Press Club today.
Md Sahidur said that his son Md Sahid had a boil inside his right ear and sought treatment at Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) hospital on November 2. He added that Dr Sudhir Ranjan told them that the case was serious and operation would be necessary.
He continued that the said doctor advised him to bring Md Sahid for operation on November 30, but when they came for check up on November 24 the doctor informed them that the condition had aggravated and immediate surgery was the only option. Consequently, the child was admitted on November 27 and operation was scheduled on the same day. However, Sudhir Ranjan evaded them for two days and none of the nurses provided information on his whereabouts. In this way, the doctor had wasted time and money for them, Md Sahidur asserted.
